I am a single mom with a 9 month old baby girl. There is a man that I am getting to know who I am interested in. He has asked me out but I am nervous. How do I deal with a dating and having a child with someone else?  My baby's father is not a problem becasue is completely out of the picture. I am just not sure how dating works when you are a single mom. What do you think?

i started dating my bf when my daughter was 5 months old. My daughters father still sees her, it stresses me out a little because my ex didn't want anything to do with me until he found out I was dating someone and then he wanted to get back together with me. But I think since your baby's father isn't in the picture it might be easier, as long as you have good family support, my mom encouraged me to go out if she hadn't i wouldn't be with my wonderful bf now, and he is amazing with my daughter he loves her so much:) I wish you the best of luck mama

My oldest dd was 6mos when I began dating my (now) dh. Her daddy was still in her life but we had been broken up for two months. My mom was really helpful, watching Lexie on nights when Luke and I wanted to go out.
Bascially it's all about balance. It's totally acceptable to go out and have fun, as long as you don't neglect the baby.

 Hi! There's a single moms group on here where I think they can also give you advice on this:

My exh and I seperated when my ds was about 3 and divorced about a year later. I started dating my now ex fiancé about 2 months before the divorce was actually final (I know). We dated 2 1/2 years but just broke up a few days ago. As long as you are not placing the guy over your baby, and he is treats you right, I say go for it :)
