Dating tips for young single mothers
By Tracy Achen Are you looking for some dating tips to ease your way back into the singles scene? Its uncharted territory, but it can be very rewarding to step outside your comfort zone.
Dating after your divorce can be intimidating not only logistically, but also emotionally. Dating as a single parent is a whole different ballgame than it was before you had kids. It can sometimes seem like everyone has an opinion about whether you should date or not.
Doing otherwise can end up making your kids angry or jealous. It's natural to feel like a teenager with raging hormones when you start dating again.
If your new man isn't willing to wait, then he will have little patience for anything else. Give yourself time to really get to know this new man.Until the mini people are old enough to get their own cereal and turn on the cartoons, there's no such thing as sleeping in. If you really want to impress everyone, let her sleep while you get the pancakes going and put the coffee on, or take everyone on a doughnut run. She probably doesn't need saving, but she definitely needs a massage. These tips can help you get started on the right foot... But this is your life and you are the one who gets to live it, not someone else. As a single mom, it's easy for your whole life to be wrapped up in your kids.
If your kids are young, just imagine how many years you'll be out of the dating scene before they leave home. Don't expect your kids to be overjoyed when you first start dating. Explain that you love them, but you also like to spend time with your friends (just like they do). And as the adult, you get to make the decisions and not your kids. But they shouldn't be the main topic of conversation during your date.
Her children's games are the only ones she wants to play. Feel like she's perfect except you don't want kids?
