Is dating as a single mom hard for you? For me it is. Due to the fact I'm on my on,have no help,can't afford a babysitter. I have many problems with guys that do not like to for my kids to go out on dates with us. So pretty much when I mention my kids have to go on a date with us you never hear from them again. So that explains why I havn't been on a date in over a year.
