When my ex-husband and I separated, I thought I’d be single for the rest of my life.
I planned on keeping my married name, raising my 2-month-old daughter alone, and living out some kind of disservice.
Some men are dating for sex, others are dating for marriage and sex, for example. Men, especially men with game, have a choice in women. Unless you’re a pedophile, it is extremely unlikely that a woman with a child has anything to offer that’s of benefit to you that a woman without a child lacks.
Conversely, here are the downsides of dating a single mother, in no particular order:1) The kid(s) will always come first for her, and that’s the way it should be.
A woman without a child has much more freedom to be available for you.
Sometimes the broken home is the one we left, not the one we created on our own.We’re not trying to pass off that responsibility to the next man that comes along. Being a single mother is not easy, it is by far one of the hardest thing I’ve ever done. When someone judges me and puts me in a category simply because I am not with my son’s father, it cuts me to the core. We struggle like everyone else because our child depends on our every move.We give and love double as much to compensate for the father is not there, yet we hurt double because the father is not there.It had been a long time since I viewed myself as an individual rather than a wife or a mother. I was no longer looking for someone to complete my life – that role belonged to my daughter.Instead, I wanted someone to join us and add to our happiness.
