Dating Time

By us all being single parents, when do you find the time to date? Also how soon did you wait after your break up in order to decide to get into a brand new relationship? Me, it's kind of hard due to the fact that I don't want just  anyone around my children. Also I don't want to waste anymore time with the wrong guy.

You'll know when you're ready to start dating again and when you are, you'll find a way to juggle things to make some time. Odds are you will waste time on at least one wrong one, but there's not really a way around that without a crystal ball. Be upfront from hello about having a child that comes first and don't bring a guy around until you're sure it's headed somewhere. Kids get attached too easily and it can damage them if too many bf's come and go. Just ease into things, set your standards high and never waste your time on one that doesn't fit your criteria for a potential keeper.

I haven't dated since we split which was 14 months ago. I don't want just anyone around my girls either.

I agree that you will know when its time again.  I thought when I left my ex that I would remain single for a very very long time.  Well it didn't quite happen that way, I left him in April and started seeing someone the end of June.  It was kinda quick but I am totally over my ex and was that way before I left him and this guy so far has been amazing.  You will know when your ready and just like someone said you will make time for it.

My kids are teens so I can date whenever I want. I have been on a couple dates since my now ex and I split up, but nothing major. When my kids were little, I would just make arrangements with a friend to keep them for me or they'd go to my sister's house for the weekend.

 This EXACTLY. I lay it all out from the get-go. I'm completely honest and don't even play that little game where everyone is nice and shy in the beginning. I'm an obnoxious, honest, blunt person anyway though.

Quoting Robsessed98:
