No one doubts that being a single parent is a tough job.
But when you throw dating into the mix, there arises a whole new set of challenges.
Others can’t fathom mixing dating with raising kids, so they put the thought indefinitely on the back burner.
Still others thirst for love, romance and companionship, only to be thwarted in their attempts because they feel out of practice, believe that being a single parent holds a stigma or are turned off by the quirks of finding love online.
Perhaps you prepared for hours, trying on a dozen outfits, flat-ironing your hair to perfection and engaging in imaginary conversations with the person who could possibly turn out to be “the one.” Now imagine being a single parent on a date. Is this guy really worth the an hour in babysitter fees?
But more than anything, on your dinner date, can you manage to not pass out in your rigatoni from sheer exhaustion?
No more standing out in the crowd or feeling isolated because they are part of the single parent family.
