dating again as a single parent-36

I couldn’t bring myself to have kids in a marriage where doing so would obliterate any chance I had to build something for myself.

I’ve been divorced for eight years, and aside from one long-distance relationship and a handful of short flings, I’ve been single ever since. Before my son was born, I had this feeling of being untethered, as if I could float away and it wouldn’t really make that much of a difference to anyone. And the longing for a companion, someone to talk to and share jokes with and be in my corner and get me, has not gone away. About a year ago, I decided I was ready to start dating again.

It takes a special person to win the heart of a single mother, because she rigorously tests her potential love interest for weaknesses.

After all, she has to decide if her potential love interest will fit as a positive role model for her children.
