After my div the Internet was just really getting started. There was a local chat room that would get together 1-2x a month. Safer than just meeting a stranger as it was a group setting. Been married 10 yrs now from a man I met that way.
I tried the on line dating, its works out for some company but they seem to all have skeletons in the closet that you don't find out about til you're involved. I wish I'd just kept it at dating and the hell with the ones that want to get serious.
I'm not a single mom anymore, but when I was I planned dates at night after my son had already gone to bed, and by dates I mean cooking a late supper in the kitchen with ze fancy man-thing and watching a movie together. Sometimes we would get a babysitter and go for walks around the neighborhood or out dancing for a couple hours. I met him through a friend because we had similar interests in art and he had wanted some photographs of himself done.
Quoting sr6487:I am alone & have kids. I've done online & I think it sucks. Don't have any single girlfriends or friends who want to go out. I am about to give up :(
Been on a few dates, but not many boys are up to my standards now. I make it clear that I am a package deal. There are a few Men out there that will daye women with kids. But they are few and far between.
Go out with friends for now and see how that goes. They might have someone in mind for you. But remember, if the child don't like the person its time to move to the next one.
Quoting LeiOKeOla:Other marriedcouples and or single's ministry in our home church are very supportive . Saturday and or Friday is date night n our church and we plan dates as a group. Either the men plan it out or even the women. It's fun putting our heads together as women tryin to see how we can encourage the men. We find out their interests and sometimes even plan around that idea to sum up the organizing/planning.
