) Dating a single mom or dad with younger children?
When my ex-husband and I separated, I thought I’d be single for the rest of my life.
I planned on keeping my married name, raising my 2-month-old daughter alone, and living out some kind of disservice.
As a mom, you’re wired to put your children before yourself. But like they tell you on airplanes, you can’t help anyone with their oxygen mask until you put your own on.
In those months of being alone, I found my own happiness.
It had been a long time since I viewed myself as an individual rather than a wife or a mother. I was no longer looking for someone to complete my life – that role belonged to my daughter.
