  • I recently turned 36, I got pregnant at 17 and had my ds at 18 and I've been single each and every one of those days (never been married) .. however.. I personally have not found that being a single mom has been an obstacle to dating.

  • I have a disabled child and had plenty of interested guys and great dates. I found a keeper and married him.

  • if you are trying to date men that have a problem with dating a single mom, then you are dating the wrong men. you need a man who appericates a self confident, self supported woman who doesn't need him.

    i don't need my BF, but I do WANT him in my life- there is a difference.

    i don't want to be needed, i want to be wanted, you should want the same- sometimes men don't realize that wanting to be wanted is the correct way to love.

    needing is co dependent but most men want to be needed.

  • I get asked out enough to say that it must not matter to alot of guys, but some of them who have never had kids have a hard time understanding why I will take any call from my kids any time of the day or night - single dads all "get it".
