A friend set up my boyfriend and I. I do have to say he did a pretty good job.

I met my boyfriend online...and I'm more serious with him than I ever have been with anyone. he frustrates the hell outta me sometimes but I love him.

honestly, I tried dating guys without kids and they don't get it...my boyfriend has 2 wonderful boys so he's more understanding of me as a mom...though I've learned to never expect anyone, him included, what it really means to be a single mom and how rare time to ourselves is, especially tbkse of us who have no one else there to help wirh anything..

I am not interested in dating and have no desire to try online dating if a guy can lie to your face he can hide behind a computer screen and lie MUCH easier.

No dating. What's the point? If someone is supposed to cross paths, he will. I definitely would never do a Parent's Without Partners or a thing like THAT!

Tell friends you are ready to date. I was a year after my husband passed. My husbands boss sent a guy who lost his dad young to speak to my boys. Well we hit it off and we are getting married on October .. Funny he was divorced for 3 years and had not dated yet. I swear The Lord or my husband in heaven did this..

Right?! Everyone between 25 and 35 in my town knows everyone else, fucks everyone else, and acts generally like a college freshman.

Quoting a06z08mama:

That's true. All of the guys around here well most of them are still into partying and live at home with parents and no jobs. My ex was 7 years older than me and acted like 13 year old. So I skipped a few more years. Its been the best thing for me and my kids

I just kicked my SO out and I can't even think about dating. It's gonna be awhile before the sting of shattered trust goes away enough for me to believe anything a guy says.

I did match.com and I went on probably 30 1st dates, had over 100people interested and this was in 1 month , I met my bf through this and 4months of being serious he is meeting dd ... I have to say I had not 1 person concerned that I had a child , I was clear that I was stable , and we didn't need anyone else ... I'm not sure if it was because of the candidness or not but interest Im me as a single mom was not a problem and I was able to be very very picky
