Are you looking for dating tips for single moms?
Whether it be by choice, by divorce, widowed, or the typical loser boyfriend guy that disappears, you find yourself being a single mom. The thought of dating again crosses your mind. Problem is you may fall into one of two categories. You want to date again, but feel like you’re a mom now so you can’t ever date again, or you are ready to date again, but perhaps you are subconsciously looking for a replacement daddy. Eek ladies!
There are a lot of advice and tips out there so here I will share some of the dating tips for single moms I have set for myself.
1. Set Rules for Yourself
When I decided I wanted to date again I knew it was not going to be like it used to be. I've got new priorities now and I set rules for myself. That's one of my best dating tips for single moms.
2. Think about It
Figure out if you're casual dating or if you’re looking for something serious. Decide what you want before you put yourself out there.
3. Be Cautious
No need to introduce every guy you go out with to the kid(s). My thoughts are that my son does not need to know mommy’s dating life.
4. Do Not Be Pushed
If the guy does not understand your child comes first, he can go bye, bye.
5. Date with Your Kids in Mind
Look at the guy and think about if he would be good with your child? If the answer is no, you probably don’t want to continue seeing him and wasting your time.
6. Be Willing to Toss the Rulebook
Lastly, learn to compromise your rules because love does not come with a set of rules.
