Mistakes men make dating single mom
As a single parent, thinking about dating doesn't just affect you; it affects your whole family.Before you start dating again, take the time to prepare yourself and make sure your kids are ready to accept the idea of a parent dating.
If you are a mother and you are collecting child support, you are not a single mother. The rest of us who have to LIVE with your fucked up, emotionally scarred children will PAY you to have a fucking abortion. Second, single mothers are clearly really, really shitty at making life decisions. You both put each other’s happiness above your own. Now divorced mothers, who are a breed of single mothers, MIGHT be a little different, but whenever you approach one, sing this little song in your head: it takes two to tango. Even if it’s TRUE that the husband was a colossal fuck-up, you need to ask yourself what kind of imperceptive moron couldn’t spot that?You can pick up a heroin addiction, drop out of high school, rob a bank or decide to write the great American novel financing yourself on your credit cards. You can go to rehab, get your GED, get parole, and pay off those cards. A modern man doesn’t turn up his nose at a woman with some sexual experience who might have learned a trick or two from previous lovers about what men REALLY like, or more likely, she learned how to FIND OUT, but the majority of men would like to see a NEW sign on her uterus. When a man picks a wife, he wants to know he won’t be competing with some random babydaddy who was there before him. A great wife and mother places the needs and happiness of her husband and children ABOVE her own needs, and in doing so, finds her greatest happiness. But a woman who makes YOU the center of her life is going to be a great wife. Oh, that’s the story she’ll spin for you, because really, what women is going to sit there and say “I’m an unbearably controlling and irrational cunt who made my husband’s life such hell he decided he would rather be a weekend Dad than spend one more second with me”. What kind of delusional self-image does a woman have, if she can fall for a con artist with a gambling habit that would shame Charlie Sheen?But once you have a child, you cannot take it back. Third, single mothers profoundly misunderstand men. There are few men who are overjoyed to spend their blood, sweat and tears on some other guy’s genetic offspring. A woman who cares so little about her children, her own prospects, and her future husband is NOT going to make a great wife. Oh, and in return, you have to make HER the center of your life. When you meet a divorced single mother, immediately start looking for the flaw. Something that drove another man to pledge his undying love to her, to have and to hold, from this day forth, and then sometime later decide “fuck this shit. Be very cautious around a woman who takes none of the blame for her failed marriage.My son is not involved in my dating life and until I know if a guy is good enough to meet my son, he doesn’t. In those six years, my son has casually met two men. I remember working on a story for a parenting magazine a few years ago and how I interviewed a psychologist about the downfall of sharing your child’s image on a dating site—that there are sick people in this world who troll sites to take advantage of fragile, lonely single moms and horrifically, their children. We have to put our guard up for so many reasons and my child is EVERY reason. I disclose I have a child by way of the check yes for kids box.He never formed attachments to them and it was always low key and I make a point to never be affectionate with a guy in front of my child (not even hand-holding or snuggles! When you’re a single mom you have to remember that you’re not the only one who will suffer a broken heart if there’s abreakup. Always remember what you’re advertising on your online dating profile. I like mob movies, golden retrievers, sushi, and hot yoga. I guess we could meet for a drink as a first date idea.
