Can I date again?

So I have two children, a 5 year old son and a 2 year old daughter.

I'm 24. I work as a paralegal. I'm divorced. My ex only sees the kids Saturdays for a couple hours. I am financially stable.

My parents are very traditional and say that I probably won't ever date/marry again since I'm divorced and have 2 kids already.

Do you think they are right? I haven't tried to date yet, trying to decide if I will.

There are lots of kids who have stepdads so I'm going to say yes.

I had 3 kids and I dated. I started dating when they were about 4,4,and 3. I had been divorced for about 3ish years by then. I wouldn't have met my now DH if I hadn't put myself out there.

Yea. You can date. Being 24 id encourage it. My mom remarried when I was 5.

My mom nor family said I'd never date again but my ex husband used to tell me no one would ever want me again. It was his manipulation tactic.

I’m sure you can, the question is why would you want to?

There are a lot of women in here who will tell you that you should never date again ever, you need to devote every spare moment of your life to your kids.
I say, live and be happy

Of course you can date again. If you want to.

Sweetheart if my grandmother can snag a man with 5 kids-you can get a man with 2 kids.

Stay single for now-focus on those babies for awhile.

It’s okay for casual dating-but you don’t need serious right now
