Before I had my son, I worried a lot about dating as a single mom by choice. Would I ever have time to go out and meet new people? Would my single-mom status be a total turnoff to men? What man in his right mind would date someone with so much baggage? These are all totally normal worries to have about being a single mom and dating. Being a single parent by choice actually helps me navigate the dating world better than I did prior to motherhood.
And childcare is too expensive to get a babysitter all the time. You know time is precious, so you cut to the chase in all areas of life. The same is true when it comes to dating.
In my case, being a mom has given me a greater sense of purpose as well. No one was good enough. I held men up to an impossibly high standard and rejected them all for not checking every single box. It might sound backwards, but now that I haveI can date for myself!
I can relax and see where it goes without the intense pressure. And for some, the constant, draining, often times lonely nature of raising alone, makes them yearn for a partner even more. Online dating is an art perfected by single moms. You get quick at separating wheat from chaff. You hone your skill of cutting to the chase in conversations. This forces you to get close to your love interest on an emotional level before things get too physical.
You might think having a kid will stop men from finding you attractive. Kids are off-putting to men, right? No one wants to date a single mom. They either want no kids in the picture or one of their own. They see how much I love my son and want some of that for themselves!
Besides that, being a mom makes you more confident, loving, and experienced: all qualities which make you more attractive to anyone. They were silly reasons, and I wasted a lot of time compromising my real values instead of finding a truly compatible partner. Not only does this save me a lot of time; it also makes me feel great about respecting myself. What did he mean by that text? Who cares.
Likewise, many single mothers who are dating say they now get over guys faster than they did before. They have to look after, so they hunker down and get on with it. A lot of breakup advice revolves around finding a way to distract yourself, and single moms have that built-in!
Tantrums, potty training, and playdates keep single moms grounded in the here and now, instead of wallowing in the past and fantasizing over what could have been. Especially as you started getting older and felt like time was running out, you might have found Single moms dating obsessing over finding the right partner.
True story: in the past, I might even have chosen a class based on which one might have the highest male:female ratio…. These days, I can just switch off and relax. I just see if we have fun or if he makes me laugh or feel good. You might seek out romantic relationships to try and fill that hole or you may find yourself fantasizing about getting help with day to day life. You have a little one to look after. So, is it hard for single mothers to date? But in many ways, dating as a single mum by choice can be even better than dating before motherhood.
With a vibrant dating life, your little one s at home, and all the other things you do, your life will be busier than ever…but it will be so rewarding too.
