Single mom of three dating
She may not be able to sit and have long, endless conversations with you while her child is awake, as her child should/will always come first.
The Fill-In Now while this may vary by situation and female, there are many single moms who date to not only find a potential long-term mate for themselves, but also to find a suitable male role model/stepfather to their child(ren).
There’s a lot of pressure when it comes to dating a single mom in this aspect, because if you aren’t up for the role of stepping in and picking up where someone left off, it can cause quite a headache down the road.
And let me just be clear, that these are based on MY experiences and obviously not reflective of EVERY single mom out there.
The Sitter Struggle Being a single parent sometimes means having to schedule a night out several weeks in advance and hope that your sitter remembers that they agreed to watch your child when the time actually comes.
Now obviously, this isn’t a discussion that comes after the first 2 or 3 dates, however it’s definitely something that should be a topic of conversation at some point in time; determining the (future) expectations, as far as the child(ren) are concerned. Not Yours One of the major obstacles that I’ve faced being a single mom and dating is that many guys don’t understand how much time it takes to be a parent.
