I am not actualy single, i have a long term partner (of 3 years) but we do not live together and he does not have a parenting role with my daughter. So i still consider myself a single mom because even tho i am not single relationship wise i am parenting alone. 

Are there any other moms who have a SO but are parenting solo?

Your a single mom. I dont think things would change until you were actually  married and living with someone that help with parenting needs.  Even when I was dating someone long term, I was still a single mom as I was raising my child by myself.

 I'm married but have been separated for months. So I'm not single but single. And I have a boyfriend and although he's been around my daughter, we don't live together and he doesn't play a parental figure in her life. And neither guy helps me financially so I would still consider myself to be a single parent.

 i actually am living with and pregnant by my SO. but i have two kids that arent his, i was single and raising them alone for 13 years and while i do have some support now, they arent his kids. so yes i am still a "single mom" when it comes to my two kids. maybe not as a dating status.

Hi and welcome to the group.

I am a single mom, and just because they don't live with me I still have ties to them, whether seeing them or not.  They will always be my children and not some other woman's as my ex wants to think/believe or whatever other words he wants to use.

My bf moved in with us in April. We have no kids together, I have 2 by my ex and he has none. I consider myself a single mom bc although he loves them and is here for them he isn't their father. They have a father who I am divorced from. My bf does help with bills but most things for my kids are provided by me and child support.

I'm in a similar situation. My boyfriend and I have been dating for two years, but we live 3 hours apart and don't coparent, don't mix finances, etc. My son is 8, and I was a single single mom prior to meeting my boyfriend.

Yep. I was single 14 years and got married 2 years ago, but by agreement he doesnt help out or interfere with my parenting in any way.

Me I was a living single married mom... Military spouse. He was gone a whole year came home cheated and left us with my married friend. She was the only one I found out about. Now I have a BF we dont live together and I only see him on the weekends due to our jobs. I live with my parents in an apartment upstairs, work full time and pay rent.
