Save the games for the rest of the single people in the world who do not have the responsibility of looking out for the emotional well-being of themselves and their child. I’m always surprised at how few people discuss this topic upfront.
Some women with children do not want any more kids, and this is an awkward conversation to have after you have already exchanged “I love yous” or “I dos.” If you want one or two kids and she already has one or two kids, this is a conversation you should have sooner rather than later.
When you are single and looking to mingle, you generally will not hurt anyone if you start dating “just to see where things go.” Plenty of men do this all the time.
Money might also be tight for her, so offer to pay the sitter and definitely spring for all the other date expenses.
A single mom has to be tough, independent, patient, real, practical, fun, selfless, nurturing, and picky about the right man for her and the kids.
Out of nowhere, this dude that I have never interacted with comes along and replies:“Children scare men.”It took me a moment to figure out what the hell he was talking about. We spoke about our random jobs that we had in our three decade adult lives, our pets, hobbies, and favorite movies. I still don’t know why men are terrified of children, but I do know that it’s lame. Those children are her universe and there is also room in it for you.
I presumed he meant that the concept of having children was not desirable to men. Single moms want to have romance and some semblance of a sex life too.
