I’m a single mother and he’s a childless dude. It’s a huge disparity that can create a lot of discord without the right level of understanding.
If love is about putting in the effort to understand one another, then it’s my duty to express who I am and what I feel. Through this exercise, I put together a few guidelines for dating a single mom. Disclaimer: This will either make you run for the hills or step up your game. I have my child with me most of the time, and the joy that comes from that is a true blessing. At the same time, I’m taking on the responsibility, that naturally, two people should share.
I put in everything I’ve got- physically and emotionally- so he never has to feel like he’s missing a parent. Sometimes I feel pangs of jealousy when I see conventional families with a mother and a father. It must be nice to share these experiences with the one other person who contributed in making your child. But there is no sharing as a single mother.
I invest everything in my child and, at the end of the day, I’ve run out of gas. That’s where you come in. If I am going to be with you, I want you to fuel me in some way. I want to share stuff with you.
It’s not that I can’t be strong on my own, but everyone deserves fulfilling companionship. I want to be with someone who makes me feel alive and makes my time worthwhile. My time with you is golden. Time away from my kid which means you better make sure it is worth it.
