  • It's too soon. Focus on your son now.

  • Yeah, your son is too young for you to be leaving him to go on dates.

  • I think so.. Jumping from one relationship to the next is never a good thing. You need time to heal, grow and learn from that relationship before a new one can begin. Not to mention the fact that a new relationship takes alot of time and with a new baby, someones needs wont be met.. Focus on yourself and the baby right now.

  • to start dating the dad again? no.
    to start dating anyone else...if you are looking for a serious relationship then yes. I think its best while they are young. It would be best to try to find someone while your child is young. When he is older it would be more of a problem. I would just make sure you use protection if you are having sex and are taking some form of bc because you wouldnt want to end up having another fatherless child.

  • If a man asks you out a month after you have another man's baby then go for it but don't be upset if he just wants a booty call

  • sure if think it's safe and you REALLY want to do it. nothing wrong with the dad watching him while you go "run errands"

  • dont look for anything serious because you do need to focus on yourself and your child...but i think its good for all new moms to get out once in a while and remember who they are outside of "mommy mode", especially single mommies

  • It's unnecessary and a bit trampy. It seems like you have to have a man to feel good. You aren't even healed from giving birth. You could at least a few months.
