And depending on how you look at it, there may also be some “downsides” when it comes to dating a mum, let alone a single mum. Now I do want to clarify that there is a major difference between being a single mum and being a mum that just happens to be single.
For most men, dating a single mum can be quite a difficult task. All too often, I see women using this term interchangeably and they are most definitely not one in the same, by any means. I’ve spent the past three years dating as a single mom – including a year-long relationship—and let me tell you something: there is no better time than to date than as a single mom. When I was dating in my twenties, I was looking for a husband with a healthy set of testicles with which to sire children. You survived that, and not only are you better for it – you’re sexier for it. Age and childbearing has allowed you to enjoy your body for all it has to offer. When I met my husband in my mid-twenties, I was still struggling to make my way professionally. When we do have time for boyfriends, we make the very most of it. There is less temptation to piddle away hours waiting on losers to commit just because you’re lonely (you will end up selling your engagement ring anyway with those guys). I can check that off my life to-do list and look for a man for love or companionship or sex – or all three. Whether the single part was by way of divorce, breakup, death or choice, it was a big deal, and that changed you. I have lunches to make and doctor appointments to schedule. Busy single moms have fewer lonely nights to fill, fewer dinners eaten alone.Before you embark on single parent dating, consider reading our advice pages: dating for parents, online dating safety and writing an online dating profile.We want to make sure single parent dating is as positive as the experience should be, and we don’t want money to stand in the way.And let me just be clear, that these are based on MY experiences and obviously not reflective of EVERY single mum out there. The Sitter Struggle Being a single parent sometimes means having to schedule a night out several weeks in advance and hope that your sitter remembers that they agreed to watch your child when the time actually comes.
