Hey I'm Veronica from north Jersey. I have a 3 year old little girl and I've been single (divorced) for 2 years. I was married 5 years and it was very messy, ulgy divorce. Haven't tried to get into anything serious with anyone b/c mentally I am not in the right place to focus on anything like that, I just want to focus on my daughter. Its very difficult and the day to day struggles are a bit overwhelming at times, and it would just be nice to meet some single mothers who know where I am coming from. Its hard because most of my friends are either single w/out kids, or married w/ children. I have absolutely no one that can even TRY to imagine what my days are like or relate to my life.

Welcome LIssa!

Of course your kids come first, and I agree that you should give them all the love you have to give without feeling guilty.  I think this new man in your life is afraid you won't have enough love to give him after giving so much to the kids (which we as moms know is false).

(((hug)))

Hi, Im Lissa! I'm a single mom of 3 beautiful and energetic kids... 4,3,and almost 2 lol.... I know I have my hands full is what ppl say! I always think to myself doesn't every mom? Anyway, Me and they're dad have been split for two years and we have a fabulous friendship for our children... I know how lucky am I... Okay here's the deal I just started to date and it's serious! He's a great guy , but I'm starting to feel like he's jealous of my kids. I don't know if I'm just over reacting because I'm very OVER PROTECTIVE of my kids. He just says things to that burn my butt! He always has something to say about how I discipline my kids or the fact that I pick my kids up when they cry. I just believe all kids deserve love at every moment. I have little girls who need to know what love is so they dont go looking for it in the wrong place, and I have a son who needs to know how to treat a woman. I do hug my kids all day long and I tell them constantly that i love them! I don't know but my kids will always come first. I've told him this is about to be a deal breaker because I've had enough. I feel so disrespected no one has ever called me a bad mom.

Welcome to the group.  

Quoting funmomma2013:

HI. I am a newly single mother of four. My youngest is almost 3 months old. My husband left us when I was 6 months pregnant with our latest baby and doesn't call or help me at all. I am all alone now raising four beautiful kids, wondering how I'll make this work with no help from him. I can't wait to meet other single moms dealing with dead beat dads.

Welcome to the group.  I can't imagine having a husband so far away, but I can understand you're feeling like a single mom at times.

Quoting NikiHawaii:

Although I am a married, my husband is always gone since he is in the military. I am used to him being gone. I feel that I could have some common interests as you ladies!   Anyways... I am 27 yrs old, living in hawaii and we have a 3 yr old daughter.  I work from home whenever I want, so I have lots of free time to chat. Send me a message :)

Hello Ladies,

My name is Nana, and I am a mother of a seven year old, apple of my eye, girl! I am new to this site, and new to single life (got divorced a year ago), so I thought that connecting with other single mothers would be helpful. I live in Chicago, I am new to budgeting and living frugal life style, but like Maya Angelou once wisely said: " When you know better...you do better":). Cheers to all of you!!

The only way he can do this is if he can prove that you are mentally unstable, using drugs or alcoholic. He will say a lot of things to scare you but you have to be strong and not let him provoke you or see you scared! I was lucky to had easy divorce ( it was not easy emotionally for me at all, and I was also scared of being on my own), but my cousin had a similar situation like you...so I understand that is not easy for you. Good luck to you, stay strong and positive!
