Do you are not alone What a great board, I'm sorry I haven't chimed in earlier.
Being a single mom has made me stronger, more passionate, and happier than ever before.
As a single mom, I work all day, and then as soon as I get out of work I rush to pick him up and spend the rest of the evening with him.
I kind of feel like it's a double edged sword, because when I don't date, people tell me "Don't you think your son deserves to have a strong male in his life?
Thanks all for the board, will spend more time here. Last date I was on, we went out and had a drink and then ventured to this really nice seafood restaurant, but they were PACKED, so we had to wait.If I met someone who also had children already, that would be okay, too. But as you folks all state, us single parents don't get out as much!You have to get out of hiding, or us good dads can't find you! I'm crazy most of the time with Gabriel and writing that I don't date at all.I spend 3 days/week with my daughter and that is fixed, so that only leaves four nights to date...or clean my house, walk my dog, get in shape, visit with friends, travel, etc. One thing that keeps me going back to the pond is a desire to have more children.
A couple of weeks ago I had coffee with a blind date who was attractive, interesting, and successful... Before that, I had a couple of dates and the next day had inexplicable headaches. Not only because it's time consuming when you already need an additional 2 hours in the day to get everything done, but also because there's no one that will love your children as much as you do.
