" But I always think in the back of my head that when I do, those same people are probably going to say "Shouldn't she be at home taking care of her son instead of galavanting all over time with a guy?
" I'll always have time to date, but I will never get his childhood back, so in the meantime, relationships are on the bottom of the priority list, and playtime is on top.
Even when I stopped him and said this is not where I want to go at this point.
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!
I'm a hour from home and my son's therapist is suppose to knock off at 8pm.
We were still 30 minutes late..the therapist was mad, but so what! Yea, I have no personal life and when I do, it's time sensitive. I'm stuck in the middle where I don't want to be bothered with junk, but that seems to be all that's out there.
Do you are not alone What a great board, I'm sorry I haven't chimed in earlier.
Being a single mom has made me stronger, more passionate, and happier than ever before.
A couple of weeks ago I had coffee with a blind date who was attractive, interesting, and successful... Before that, I had a couple of dates and the next day had inexplicable headaches. Not only because it's time consuming when you already need an additional 2 hours in the day to get everything done, but also because there's no one that will love your children as much as you do.
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.
If I met someone who also had children already, that would be okay, too. But as you folks all state, us single parents don't get out as much!
