One thing parenting doesn’t make easy though, it dating.You read books on how to give birth and how to breastfeed, but learning how to date when you have a child seems much more complicated.In the first of Sophie Gillard’s series of blogs she writes about the realities of single parenthood and getting back into the ‘dating scene’. Here he tells the story of how Gingerbread's forums helped him find love again.
The other perk being that you can almost guarantee that a house with kids in it, is guaranteed to have snacks on demand at all times.
And depending on how you look at it, there may also be some “downsides” when it comes to dating a mom, let alone a single mom.
Before you proceed, there are some things you need to know, both to preserve your sanity and ego as well as hers.
But, albeit all your other intentions, you’ve met one and you like her. So, let’s assume for the sake of this article that you’ve moved past the novelty of nailing a “milf” (a stupid yet totally relevant word), and have begun to wrap your brain around and perhaps even embraced that this great girl comes with some, er… (I think “baggage”, no matter the negative connotations it brings, is the term), and you’re okay with the kids, minimal time to herself, baby daddy and most likely an ex that will be in her life forever, part of it all.
In my opinion, being a single mother has absolutely nothing to do with one’s marital status.
