Single Moms!

If you were a single parent but now have a SO or DH where did you find them? Were your children with you when you first met? Any jerks out there have a problem with your children? Thinking about getting back in the dating scene but lets face it I'm clueless! lol

  • WTF? Anon 1:29 has a giant stick rammed up her ass! I'm not a single mom, but I know A LOT of single guys that say they have NO problem dating a woman with kids. Good luck to you! I'd be just as clueless!

  • Awesome question OP, I have wondered the same but seeing as we have a troll, now I remember why I haven't. So 51% of marriages end in divorce and therefore, I have no right to date. I think my son is old enough to handle me dating when the time comes. I think i was an awsome mom for putting that part of my life on hold for 8 years. I SHOULD write abook.

  • Shut your face anon 129! Good lord. just b/c she wants to start dating again doesnt mean shes going to bring all her dates around her kids. Use some commone sense...As for the OP, there are good guys out there who will accept your children. My sister is with a guy for about 4 yrs now and he treats my niece like shes his. They have no kids in common, but hes cool with the niece.

  • I'm the OP I have put off dating almost 8 years too. Literally not one. I asked because men ask me out when I'm around my child I only have one and I always thought this was inappropriate so I never said yes. I'm almost always with him unless I'm at work. Now I'm wondering if I'm being uptight. Anon29 why would you say something like that? That is obviously trying to get a fight started. This is not the place for it Please.

  • My son introduced my SO and I at a baseball game. I avoided dating for almost 10 years just because I am not much of a dater to begin with.
