:)My perfect evening used to be a nice dinner and walk.
It's now sitting on the couch catching up with my son about his day!
As single parents, our first love is always our kids with our time and attention, but many consider this, so we are reposting it as it originally came from The rising of divorce rates has caused many single parents to re-enter the dating world.
Being a single parent does not always entail a past of a failed marriage; however, most single parents find difficulties while pursuing another partner.

X In the third of Sophie's dating blogs she shares her advice for the big date.
Lumping her in with single mothers is an insult to his memory, to her and to her children. Divorced mothers are also NOT single mothers, although a huge flashing PROCEED WITH CAUTION sign is definitely in order. A single mother is a woman who had a child outside of any established relationship, or a relationship so fragile the thickest retard in the world ought to have been able to see bringing a child on board was a FUCKING TERRIBLE IDEA.I fear I'll be my mother who divorced at 36 and never dated again!!Immersed her life in her kids (or used it as an excuse to NOT get over the fear of dating after being married 15 years). I'd rather stay at home with my kids and either go out or just sit home and relax!I remind myself that 1 day I don't want to be a burden on my daughter of not having my own life. How do you feel it harmed you to have that much focus on you? She has two great parents and has become a lovely young adult, and that is the one criticism I've heard her level at them. I live with no regrets and I fear that if I consume myself in finding "Mr.Plus, I'd love to show her a nice nuclear family 1 day... Right" (if there is one) :) that I will look back and regret not spending that extra time with my son... He's 5 now and wants all my time, not sure that when he's a teenager he'll feel the same way. I feel it makes more sense to use what little personal time I have away from my daughter to focus on ME, not a man.
:)I'm a single mom by choice (got old and had my daughter on my own)... with no family near and older single friends who I decided to leave our comfortable lifestyle of wine clubs and travel - who just don't understand parenthood nor have interest in babysitting... But you're right, having a child all of a sudden takes away all that "need" to seek out a spouse (at least for me).
