Advice for Moms Advice for Moms

Dating and the single mom

Posted by   + Show Post

I went out on a date during the week for the first time. My kids are finally old enough to be left alone.   We were having a really great time but I had to cut it short because I don't like leaving the kids alone for more than a couple of hours.  The kids were already in bed and I have a finished basement so I invited him in for a drink. 

Now I feel like a terrible mother.  Is it bad that I had a man in the house while the kids were upstairs sleeping?  All we did was sit on the couch and watch a movie then he left.

Thoughts?

It seems too early to have him in your home, especially with the kids home.

You did nothing wrong, and your children had your supervision while you were there.

I didn't think about this aspect. If you didn't know him very well, then it was too soon to invite him in. It depends on if you were friends already.

Quoting Derari:
