It seems for many of these women, meeting his kids is a really big deal. It’s a sign, a sign of interest, a sign of faithfulness, perhaps a sign of his love.
At this point, I'd rather meet someone in real life anyway: what an oxymoron considering I'm a single mom.
Among the men I am meeting both via online or when out at a bar, I've got single dads, young guys, creepy men, and lifelong bachelors inching their way into my section of the dating pool.
The creepy men are an absolute no, and the lifelong bachelors are just as frustrating as they were when I was single, before my divorce.
If you get nothing else from this essay, let it be this: When you’re a single parent, there are very different rules to love, sex, and, dating.
My advice to these women is often the same – patience and understanding.
