As dating parent single
"When you're a mom, it changes every sector of your dating life and who you choose to spend time with."Kaywanda Lamb, a single mom of two boys who coaches other single moms on dating and relationships, had a similar experience.All she heard as a newly single mother was that no one, especially men who didn't have their own kids, would want to date a single parent.Sometimes, Shearer says, those people still won't want to meet your kids or become a permanent fixture in your lives, but that's okay.
"It's an incredible thing to go out with a guy at night and then he goes home and you wake up with your beautiful little three year old who has no clue where you just were," Shearer says.
"If you assume that no one's going to want to meet your children, or be a father, or fall in love with you because you're a single mom, then they won't," Shearer says.
You have to shift the expectations in your own mind and realize that people will still find you attractive.
Not dating of out guilt gets you nowhere but resentful.
