Despite saying that he isn't thinking about dating yet, having been married to Linda for 59 years, the rumour mill swung into motion when he and Priscilla were snapped getting in and out of a white limo outside Craig's in West Hollywood.What didn't help was a source who came forward and told The Sun: 'Tom and Priscilla are courting.There’s a parental understanding that seldom needs explanation; she gets it.
She also has a personal rule of waiting a year before introducing someone she’s dating to her child, because she believes children are impressionable and she wants to avoid hurting her son as much as possible.Kevin, a single man with no children, says he has no problem dating women with children and has had various experiences.Sometimes people just want to have fun adult time away from their children without feeling pressure to be anything more.When dating someone with children, don’t assume there is drama with the other parent or that you’ll be expected to play a parental role; everyone’s different.The Sex Bomb singer, 76, and the Naked Gun actress, 71, have been the focus of much speculation in recent weeks, after being spotted on numerous cosy 'dates' together.
But Sir Tom has directly addressed the rumours and shot them down - insisting the nights out were purely platonic.One woman kept him and her child separate because their “friends with benefits” situation didn’t call for that level of connection.Another wanted her child to call him “Daddy” after only four months of dating, so he had to fall back from that situation.Melanie, a divorced mother of two teenagers, says that she vets the guys she’s interested in pretty thoroughly early on.Even if he’s not at the “meet the kids” stage, she needs to know that when the time comes, she’ll be comfortable with the intro.Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, the Welsh musician said: 'Priscilla is a friend of mine. But it’s not true that we’re dating or in a relationship. But good friends.'The pair have known each other for half a century - Tom being friends with her late husband Elvis who died in 1977.
