I guess what I'm telling myself is--I'd rather be single. From my perspective as a working single mom, a guy has to be pretty special to take time away from my child when I already wish that I had more time with him.
:)My perfect evening used to be a nice dinner and walk.
It's now sitting on the couch catching up with my son about his day!:)I'm a single mom by choice (got old and had my daughter on my own)... with no family near and older single friends who I decided to leave our comfortable lifestyle of wine clubs and travel - who just don't understand parenthood nor have interest in babysitting... But you're right, having a child all of a sudden takes away all that "need" to seek out a spouse (at least for me).He knows no bounds when it comes to trying to get a woman in the sack and will try to get her drunk to help him do so.He may also prey on women’s insecurities to get what he wants before discarding them. Never Wrong: This type of guy will express the most absurd opinion as fact, and when presented with information contrary to those opinions, will still maintain his position.Now, more than ever before, I have come to a point in my life where I just have zero patience for certain types of men. Everyone has the right to do whatever the heck they want to with their free time.
Part of the reason for this is that I’ve had much more dating experience, but I think more importantly, I have gained a certain degree of self-confidence after surviving college and transitioning into independent adulthood, and doing so relatively unscathed. Nevertheless, one would hope that by the time someone enters adulthood, they’d recognize that there are far more interesting things to do with every weekend than go to a club.An older woman once told me a cautionary tale about the man she married who she thought was a “mama’s boy.” He hung himself after his mother died, because he couldn’t imagine life without her. I Have Made Every Woman I’ve Ever Been With Orgasm: I run into these guys far too frequently and every single time the statement “I’ve made all the girls I’ve been with come” comes out of their mouths, I just roll my eyes and walk away. I love to travel,and a willingness to hop and a plane and GO is something I need. That Guy Who Is Still Mansplaining Street Harassment: No, there is no reason or excuse for men invading women’s physical or emotional space in public. If a man still believes there is, there is simply no conversation to be had. For that reason, whenever certain men have not attained “success,” as defined by male/female societal roles, when he cannot be “the provider” and his “manhood” is undermined, he often becomes self-loathing, depressed or hostile which can be dangerous for his partner.She walked into her home and he was dangling from the roof in their bedroom. That Guy Holding The #All Lives Matter Placard: Like, really? When we consider the vast and available literature on female sexuality that points to the reality that many women have difficulty coming all by themselves, any man who is delusional enough to believe that somehow he just has the “magic stick” just should not be entertained. (Men who don’t necessarily adhere to strict gender rules/norms and define their own success don’t fit in this description.) 14.He agreed and then on subsequent dates, continued to try and make moves. There may not be someone for me now because I am so picky because I have my girls to think about. I went on a first date over a week ago and never heard anything from him!He lives in the neighborhood and our kids go to the same school so it's not like we aren't going to see each other. I would rather spend time on ME when I have free time without the kids. I am in a going nowhere relationship right now and it sucks.Immersed her life in her kids (or used it as an excuse to NOT get over the fear of dating after being married 15 years). I'd rather stay at home with my kids and either go out or just sit home and relax!
