I’ve spent the past three years dating as a single mom – including a year-long relationship—and let me tell you something: there is no better time than to date than as a single mom. When I was dating in my twenties, I was looking for a husband with a healthy set of testicles with which to sire children. You survived that, and not only are you better for it – you’re sexier for it. Age and childbearing has allowed you to enjoy your body for all it has to offer. When I met my husband in my mid-twenties, I was still struggling to make my way professionally. When we do have time for boyfriends, we make the very most of it. There is less temptation to piddle away hours waiting on losers to commit just because you’re lonely.
It is normal to feel sad and lonely if you don’t have a boy- or girlfriend.
(It can also feel horny, but that is a slightly different topic — don’t get those confused!
I figured that a dad came with real life experience.
Well, she’s a kid and doesn’t understand her mom’s need for male companionship.” In response to her daughter’s fears, this mom has asked her boyfriend to slow down. “I want to give the daughter time to accept and trust a new man in their lives. I’m a single guy, and I get a bit lonely.” In the meantime, the mom has made it very clear that she cares about him, but she’s afraid.
