How is a single mom suppose to date?! Should we ever?
so, i'm a single mom.. i worked 70 hrs last week.. on a good week it's between 50-60. Any other time I have my son with me. I have no family who will watch him and my only friends work just as much as I do. I got into an argument w/ the ex husband yesterday. He says that I shouldn't introduce a man to our son unless I know for a fact that I want to spend the rest of my life w/ the guy.
how on earth would I ever have time to even get to know him unless he is allowed around our son?! If I abide by his rules then I would get to go out w/ this guy MAYBE every other weekend depending on if the ex would watch our son for the weekend or not.. I work so damn much it won't work to have him come over after my son goes to sleep because I'm in bed shortly after.. He just doesn't understand what I do and sacrifice!! The last time I had any 'adult fun' - going to a club or out w/ people MY age - was TWO fucking years ago!! because I took a vaca and my Mom watched my son while I went out w/ old friends.. He gets the opportunity to go to bike week whenever he wants, or out w/ the boys every weekend.. he just doesn't GET where I'm coming from. I basically have to beg him to watch our son when I have to work a full saturday b/c our son doesnt like to just hang out around work all day - and he'll only do that if he has nothing else to do.. last time he ditched him so he could go to bike week.
Yet, I'm suppose to wait probably years before I introduce a guy to our son? should I even try at all? Should I just be lonely until my son is out of the house?
I'm just so damn frustrated!!!
