At risk of making myself look bad, I once dated a single mom of a two-year-old.She was smart, she was sexy, she was financially independent – and she had no time to give to me.
If I were advising my bother, I would tell him “don’t date a single mother”. I have a few matches (when you like them and they like you) and am having a few conversations. I know that dating a single mother must be tough for a man.I just want a friend and a companion and someone who I have chemistry and intellectual compatibility with.I am seriously at the point of giving up on the whole dating thing…I recognise that in the short to medium term my dating life is going to be very separate from my parenting life, but at some point, if we are going to have a long term relationship, my two lives are going to have to converge.
I was married for ten years, have four beautiful boys under 9 and have a very fulfilling and successful career.I believe I have a lot to offer – I am caring, kind, warm, loyal and intelligent. I am not looking for a father for the boys; they have one.I am not looking for a provider; I provide very well for myself.My life is happy, but I really would love to share it with someone…but dating when you have FOUR kids is like the Mt Everest of the dating world!I guess I must be in reasonable shape because NOBODY can guess I’ve even had four kids, or that I’m even 34 (I get asked out by guys in their early 20s- I feel like I should read them a story and tuck them into bed… we usually go on a few dates, everything is going wonderful… I’m not talking about church bells, but just to an actual relationship. I am sick of being treated like a piece of ass, and treated like I must be desperate because I have kids.
