Single moms -- Do you date?

I don't. Having worked with CPS, I am too leery of bringing new people (eventually) around my child. Also being a single mom, I want to spend ALL my extra time with my child. Just wondering how you guys balance it all.

  • I'm not single anymore.. I was with my ex for 8 years and had two kids with him. He was a cheater.. so I finally left. I hung out with guys..not dated.. and not around my girls.. I am now with a guy who I've known for almost 7 years.. we were friends before my first child was born so he has been around since before I even had my girls so they know him.

  • your kids should come first. sometimes we are too quick to want to start dating because we are board. nothing wrong about it .... just find something to do with your kids when you have more time on your hands, we often feel lonely ... not a good thing sometimes we welcome unhealthy relationships. get to really now a person and there motives of why they really want to be with you. YOUR KIDS COME FIRST
