Being a single parent and dating has become…

Being a single parent and dating has become very complicated. I always tell people that when I get involved with a man I’m not just looking to see if he is all that I’m looking for in a man. I want a man that is a good example of a man for my daughter to be around. I’m at a fork in the road with the man I’m with now. I feel that we should have just been strictly friends. He came with so much extra baggage and yes everyone does but some baggage you can deal with and some you just cant. I should have got to know him better, as old as I am I know better. When you’re single for so long and you meet someone that seems to be all you want you lose all realization. My main concern now is hurting my daughter who has become attached to him 😦 Every day is a new lesson and I am still learning.

  1. I love this post because I know all single parents go through this same situation – we’re afraid to give up someone who isn’t in the best status for us, all in fear of of child(ren) getting hurt as a result. You have to do what is best for you and your child and if that means dismissing this guy, then you must dismiss him and just try to make a better judgement the next go around. Because we are single mothers, does not mean we do not deserve to be loved by someone. We need it just as much as the next chick does. We roll off of our emotions which is the reason I believe why sometimes we do not make the best decisions -especially when we believe we’ve found “the right one.”
