Single mom dating guy without kids
Well, let me clarify: I have no shortage of “dates”. I have an outgoing personality and seem to be asked out a lot…
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.
The “dating other people” bit threw me for a loop and hoping you might share your thoughts.
Thanks for your question, Single Mom, because it’s a great reminder that sometimes a strong connection isn’t always enough to get a relationship off the ground.
Once upon a time, I was on Twitter lamenting about not finding love. Men, please stop judging women if they have children.
My heart is having second thoughts and wondering if I should have been open to the consideration of getting to know him better while being open to meeting others? I’ve dated a good amount of men, and on many levels he seemed wonderful.
but dating when you have FOUR kids is like the Mt Everest of the dating world!
It seems almost impossible for men to see past that.
If a man is really young, he’s probably used to dating women without children, who are, by definition, a lot more available.
Why should he settle down with a woman who can only give him one night a week when he can have a girlfriend who can give him three or four nights? And if either of you are raising young ones, they’re a lot more all-consuming than if you’ve got high-schoolers who can largely take care of themselves.
