So what I want to know is do you like being a single mom? Or would you like it better if your childs father was in your childs life? I alot of my friends and family have a baby or babies. Most of us are single mothers. So I just want to know is being a single mother something you wanted to be or did the father just walk out? I have a DS and his father who I call the sperm donor. Never wanted to be a father and still to this day dont want to be one. I was really upset at frist about being a single mother but now I dont care.

Heck no i dont like it. Who would? Um i dont want to be with dds father even if he did step up and be a das cause he's a bafoon and honestly highly embarrassing and annoying. . But i would be happy if he was jusr there for dd and help take care of her. I think if he did that id be ok. Usually,I'm ok but like today the fact i dont have a family unit, mom dad baby livinf in our cute little house, i am a little devastated. I wish i was married to my ideal husband and father of my child. I really got witha loser, I'm happu i have my daughter but so upset I'm a single mom. I'm the only single mom of family and friends .

To be honest I was married and I never pictured myself raising my two on my own but life happens..in my life the majority of my stress/ drama was coming from my relationship not my children. does a challenge but I'd much rather be in a peaceful home with just me and my kids rather than being with my ex hubby fighting all the time

What I like is being able to make all the parenting decisions. I didn't plan on it, but it has made me a better person.

When I got married I never imagined that I would be a single mom. I don't like being a single mom, but I do like being able to make all the parenting decisions like the previous poster.

For me, I do. I don't have to part with ds on weekends or share him on holidays. When it comes to important decisions I don't have to consult with anyone.

But it breaks my heart for ds. That part I hate. I hate that ds has to sacrifice his time with me because I work so much to provide for him. That he doesn't have his bio father to teach him about sports or do father son things with him.


Single Parenting definitely has pros and cons.

My kids dad is very involved...
But I love being a single mom...it's so much easier. My home is calmer...and I don't need to ruin any decisions by anyone else...unless it's something major with the kids... I get along with their dad very well...he's a great dad...we just can't be under the same roof.

I like being alone and self sufficient..I'm not good at being a partner... I'm too controlling and don't want to compromise with another adult.

No, our son was planned but then My husband left us for some woman he met in Dominican Republic. This is NOT the life I wanted for us. We are just making the best out of this situation and trusting God has someone better for us.

I like not sharing. I hate not having help.
Her "sperm donor" is a pos. My bf is great with her, but i don't expect him to help financially until we're married.
He's not close so he can't help much. But when he is around he's wonderful with her.

I am a single mom and enjoy some aspects of it. My Dd's dad is involved in her life. He's still got a lot of growing up to do but I am fully aware it could be much worse.
