Dating while being a single mother
As difficult as it may be to begin dating again, we are all human and we all have the desire to be with another person.Dating allows us to connect with another adult on both a physical and emotional level that every human has the inate desire to have.While it is unlikely you will be harmed by somebody you meet online, it is always best to be cautious.Meet at a busy coffee shop or mall where there are dozens, if not hundreds of eyes around to see your interactions. Many single mothers are very excited by the new man in their life and rush into introducing them to their child. Then there’s the sinking guilt of raising my son without his father and the exhaustion of having to do it all.
Dating is a juggling act, but it’s doable (so do it! One night, I’m getting wined and dined, like any other single lady.
For these reasons it is best that you only introduce a new man into their lives once you feel like the relationship is going to last.
Volatility is the last thing a child needs when in a single parent family.
Children are very fragile and constantly bringing new men in and out of their lives will reduce their level of stability.
Whether you think it affects them or not, constantly changing partners will affect them psycologically and can result in them repeating similar actions later in life.) It took me a good four years to start dating again, and I don’t take it lightly when it comes to a guy meeting my son. The next, I’m back at home with the love of my life, simultaneously searching for a Lego man’s microscopic hand, cooking dinner and singing the ABC’s — and okay, shooting my date a text.
