I am a single mother (and only parent) to an 11-year-old boy and we live in a suburb of Boston. On my blog I talk about my life (sometimes in the dating scene), my son, reviews, and share things that I love all while trying to find the humor in it.I have a wonderfully supportive family; without them I would probably be lost.
Her time is limited, and much of her energy goes toward taking care of her kids.
But she’s also much more clear about what she wants in life, and that's an attractive quality!
But complications need not keep a single parent from dating … Careful planning and wise decision-making can lead to an enjoyable dating life—and who knows, maybe even the partner you’ve been dreaming of. You’re a parent forever, but you don’t need to be a SINGLE parent forever.
Here are 15 thoughts to consider, whether you are just starting to date or pondering a future with someone you’ve been dating a while: 1. Naturally, your child’s safety is priority number one. Rushing into a new relationship is not advisable under any circumstance, but especially when children are involved. It’s okay to think of yourself a multifaceted human being. Someone out there is going to love you—and your children—wholeheartedly.
So enlist the help of your mother or most reliable babysitter. It isn’t always easy to bring up the fact that you have kids when considering going out with someone new. If your romantic relationship gets serious, the next steps will greatly affect your child. Err on the side of caution when introducing a potential partner to your kids. Get a baby-sitter, relax, and treat yourself to an evening on the town.
