Dating a single mom is hard
Sometimes I feel pangs of jealousy when I see conventional families with a mother and a father. I want to be with someone who makes me feel alive and makes my time worthwhile. It means that we have to make our time together a priority. I do not have the luxury of dropping what I’m doing and heading out.
It must be nice to share these experiences with the one other person who contributed in making your child. Even if I have a village of wonderful people to help me, I am the only person that can be the I invest everything in my child and, at the end of the day, I’ve run out of gas. I have to get a babysitter and schedule how long I can be out and when I need to return. But do you know how happy I am when I get that alone time with you? To me, it’s like a romantic getaway, a mini-vacation.
And even if she seems to be the perfect woman, there may be some aspects about dating a single mom that you are just not willing to deal with. Don’t get me wrong, it can be very rewarding to date a single mom.
A date may get canceled last minute because a babysitter canceled last minute.Put in the effort into making it special every time. Our relationship will not flow like other peoples’ relationships.Effort = Planning in advance, which means I feel like you respect my time. Sharing hobbies and traveling together are important aspects in evolving relationships.In short, if you are on the fence, it’s better to think about the possible negatives (and decide if you are willing to deal with them if they come up) before things get too serious and it becomes extremely hard to leave the relationship.Many single moms have been used or abused and then left to fend for themselves.
