OK IM A SINGLE MOM OF 3 BOYS, AND I WANT TO KNOW WHAT ALL YOU MOMS THINK ABOUT SOMETHING. I HAVE SOME FAMILY THAT KEEPS TELLING ME I HAVE TO AND GOT TO STAY SINGLE, AND I SHOULD NOT DATE OR HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH A MAN. THEIR REASON IS BECAUSE I HAVE KIDS. I DONT GET IT, IM ALMOST 30 AND IM READY TO SETTLE DOWN AND BE MARRIED, I HAVE BEEN READY FOR YEARS BUT HAVENT FOUND THAT GUY YET, AND I DONT REALLY DATE THAT MUCH I HAVE NOT BEEN IN A RELATIONSHIP IN WAY OVER A YEAR. AM I WRONG FOR WANTING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE MY BOYS DADS ARENT AROUND THEY NEED A FATHER FIGURE, ONE IS ALMOST A TEEN. I DONT THINK ITS FAIR FOR THESE FAMILY MEMBERSD TO BE THIS WAY, IM AM LONELY AT TIMES AND THEIR IS A PART OF MY HEART MY KIDS CANT FILL, I WANT A LARGE FAMILY. I LOVE MY KIDS EVERYTHING IS ABOUT MY KIDS, BUT I DONT WANT TO AN OLD WOMAN IN MY 60'S OR 70'S DYING ALONE AND NEVER HAVING A MAN TO SHARE OUR FAMILY LIFE WITH. AM I WRONG FOR THIS???

Well just to be devil's advocate, I would suggest you wait until your boys are older. Relationships take a lot of time and energy and seeing your oldest is a pre-teen, you likely have a lot of work with three young boys. Also, you mentioned "dads" so I am assuming your relationships and choices in men hasn't been the greatest. One day, your children will not need you the way they need you now. That day is not 30 or 40 years down the road. They could use your undivided attention (especially seeing you are all they have) for a few more years. What your boys don't need is to be let down by more men than already have.
