Is Dating As a Single Mom Difficult For You?

 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.

It is for me but its cause lof finding a guy that don't get freaked out by me having a 5 year old. Most of them once thinking about it say they are not ready for a reationship with a child in it. And am glad they notice that but I have got a lot of great friends.

 Its ok not to go on dates.  Even better when you think about your kids and priorities.

 Exactly what I think too. I love being with my kids and put my kids first. My kids are ages 11 and 8. I like making a good example for them.

Yes dating is difficult, men have it easy because even when they have kids they are usually just every other weekend dads. They do not have to worry about babysitters. We on the other hand have our kids the majority of the time, and to be honest I do not want just any man around them, I am picky about that.  My dating is very minimal, plus one of my boys has autism which makes it that more difficult. It gets lonely at times, but what can you do?

It's difficult, but I really don't care for it.

Not for me. I usually am upfront and like "Well if kids aren't your thing", usually the answer is "No no, not an ideal thing for me, but I'm sure I can handle it".

Only 2 guys I've dated had a problem with me having a child. The guy I'm dating is probably not going to last, not because of my child, but because he is a horny motherfucker and I can't deal with that, lol.

Ngi ne themba - I have hope.
