I have a four-month old daughter, and I know one day, eventually, I will date again. I read some of the post about dating and other situation involving introducing your child(ren) to your new beau. Most of the post suggest that if he is willing to be a father let him, just tell your child(ren) about there "real" father.
I wanted to know, other than DNA, is there a difference between a "real," biologcial father and a man who is there physically, emotionally, financially, mentally, etc?
I ask because I see a lot of post that say, "he can never replace your "real" father, even though he may be doing the fatherly duties that a child's "real" father is supposed to do? Do you think it's contradictory?
