Dating as a Single Mom
Dating when you’re getting a bit on in the years can be daunting. As a single mom, I didn’t think I would ever meet the one, especially not on a dating website. However, I threw caution to the winds and delved into the online dating world. Here are a few things I discovered…
People still go on dates
Yes, regardless of age or circumstance, people still like to go on dates. I had many awesome dinner and movie dates as well as picnics in the park before I met my boyfriend. Romance is still alive.
You should let the guy pay
Chivalry is still alive, and the majority of guys you date will want to pick up the cheque. Let them! It’s great to be courted these days, especially when you’re a once divorced single mom who is new to the dating world.
Having a child doesn’t make you less desirable
In fact, it makes you more desirable. Guys love to date moms, as they can see that you’re caring, especially when you’re looking after your child. Soon they will love your child as much as you do.
You will meet someone your age
There are many eligible bachelors out there, and they aren’t all 25. I myself was looking for a man around 40, and I met many of them! The best thing that you can do for yourself is go on dates and get to know these men. It’s the only way that you can decide whether or not you’d like the relationship to continue.
