Single moms and dating tips
These tips can help you get started on the right foot... But this is your life and you are the one who gets to live it, not someone else. As a single mom, it's easy for your whole life to be wrapped up in your kids.
If your kids are young, just imagine how many years you'll be out of the dating scene before they leave home. Don't expect your kids to be overjoyed when you first start dating. Explain that you love them, but you also like to spend time with your friends (just like they do). And as the adult, you get to make the decisions and not your kids. But they shouldn't be the main topic of conversation during your date.
The old jingle claims there are plenty of fish in the sea, but if you're a single mom, even dipping a toe in the dating pool can feel equally exciting and nerve wracking.
You will never choose who you fall in love to, however, perhaps it is better to go with someone who could understands you have to cancel the romantic weekend since your child have been throwing up within your bed the night prior.
