Dating single mothers bad
But she didn't always feel that single motherhood was fabulous.At first, she struggled to find resources about dating as a single parent.Dating before she was a mother was kind of like flying blind in the parenting department, because without kids around she couldn't really know that her partners would parent in the same ways as she does."People change when the baby comes, and sometimes marriages can't recover," she says.
"I had the time of my life and I proved that a single guy with no kids will date a single mom," she says.First of all, you don’t to date, just because that’s what society, TV shows and glossy magazines expect of you.When I was newly single after separating from the dad of my two kids, so many people asked me when I was going to “put myself out there” that I felt like getting a T-shirt printed that read, “Single mom: no desire (or time) to date.” Lots of other moms are single by choice, and wouldn’t have it any other way.“My life as a single person is pretty great — it takes a lot for me to try to make room for a romantic relationship,” said Megan G., who lives with her 9-year-old son in Richmond, VA and has been single for six years.
“I think that’s an important point — you don’t fail if you just don’t have it in you to date.” “I love my single life,” agreed Isa D., who lives with her 4-year-old daughter in Boulder, CO and has been single for four years.
