Single mom dating tips
For this reason, I wouldn’t introduce the person I am dating to my son as my ‘boyfriend’.
That said, it’s easier said than done to keep them totally apart, and often just not practical.
I’m happy to confirm that my son has positively transformed my life in so many ways, he’s the most wonderful and perfectly-timed gift I could have wished for.
Because of the stigma surrounding single parents and myths I was believing at the time, my subconscious told me I would have more luck keeping my profile baby-free. On my first date after being pregnant, dumped and giving birth – when my self-esteem had hit rock bottom – I sat opposite a man who visibly quivered when I revealed I was a mum and compared my child to his ongoing battle with Crohn’s disease. When you’re a parent, things can feel even tougher.When I first started dating again after my son (who is now three) was born, my confidence and self-belief couldn’t have been lower.You’re a mum, yes, but you’re also a woman who wants to flirt and enjoy a nice glass of wine in some adult company.I think it’s important to make clear to the person you are dating that you aren’t looking for any help with parenting.
