I know this is going to sound bad, but it depends on how confident you are or how hot you are, Hot women and confident women with kids has no/ zero/ nada /bupkis problems on getting dates, average women with low or no self esteem, the ones worried about their weight, finances etc, has the most problems with dating. Not so much but I think if the right guy came along I would make an effort but I've always liked my independence and have liked being single so for me there isn't much of a dating difference from when I was single to being a single mother except i'm in better shape now... I am a single mum aswell, have been for 6 years, bad divorce so only now redy to date, but yes it is hard getting back into dating, your children always come first and not always easy to get childcare for going on a date, but stick with it, it will happen for you :)Many single moms let themselves go too much.I get hit on all the time now more than when I was single cuz I have never looked better. I feel positive have a positive attitude and think that goes a long way. Put on a lot of weight and/or develop habits that are not helping them to attract the sort of men they want/imagine they want.It'll take some time considering you work and most likely a full time mom, i imagine it's hard for you to go out and meet new people or even get a small break for yourself?
Face it, being a parent is a big job, and if you also work full time it is very difficult to sometimes spend the amount of time one needs to cultivate a meaningfull relationship. I couldnt really put an effort into dating until my son was 12-13-ish-basically when his social life stopped revolving around me.
I accepted this before I left my marriage-I knew as a single Mom I was no longer going to be considered 'the belle of the ball'. Most of your profile seems to concentrate on negative things, or the fact that your kids come first.
When I was single and no kids a single parent didnt hold a ton of appeal to me either. I understand that your kids are important, as well they should be, but you're here to meet men.
Added to that, because I do have a son, I am more selective about what types of men Ill date. I wouldn't want to have it shoved in my face how I'll always be second best, and I'd imagine most men would feel the same way.
Meeting new people is difficult because I do not randomly go out.
I work full time, take dance class once a week, own my own home, and am responsible for my family. It does give me options if I'm in the mood for male companionship, but I do not think I will find a long term partner here. Only because I do not wish to pay for a sitter.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
Half of my month, is when I schedule my social life. I do have problems with dating, but probably not for the reasons you meant. is what makes things a little more difficult for me.
