Never take it personally unless she is clearly saying or doing things to hurt or upset you.The Ex Factor One of the most troubling hurdles for men to overcome when dating a single mom is the fact that the ex-husband or boyfriend may still be around, caring for his children.
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.
Trust me when I say, you have no reason to be jealous or worried about any kind of relationship developing if you are dating a seasoned single mom.
If you are with a very recently single mother she may still have feelings for her ex, after all, they did have a child together. Dating someone when an ex is still in the picture, even moreso when it is her child's father, can be a bit awkward at first. Single moms have much, much more to worry about than when you're going to call next.
Don't just say you care, prove it by stepping up and helping out around the house and in her life.
We Don't Need a Rescue Many men are scared to date single moms because they imagine she will be clingy and want to settle down immediately. In reality, most men find dating single moms to be entirely refreshing because the single moms typically have no interest whatsoever in settling down with a man until they get to know him. perhaps some of us feel that way, but most of us single moms are just fine with our man-free lives.
