Man dating single mom
She may very well miss a call or three because she’s helping her kids with their homework, or getting them ready for bed. If the woman you’re dating is an active parent (which you should hope that she is), this is just something that comes with the territory. Meeting Day This really isn’t as much of an issue as the factors I’ve named above; however, it sometimes can become a touchy subject.
There are the guys who would be fine with not meeting her child until she’s meeting him at the altar, and then on the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those men who want to set up play dates after the first date/encounter.
There seem to be several perks when it comes to dating a woman with kid(s).
The Sitter Struggle Being a single parent sometimes means having to schedule a night out several weeks in advance and hope that your sitter remembers that they agreed to watch your child when the time actually comes.
The difference between a single mom and a mom who happens to be single, is that a single mom has the sole responsibilities of raising a child on their own, whereas a mom who happens to be single, could be a mom who is single but in an equal and successful co-parenting situation; so now that we have that clarification out of the way, let’s proceed.
Let me just say that as a woman, dating without kids was a headache, as I can imagine is the same for men, but dating with a child has proven to be even more difficult and I can provide several reasons why.

Now obviously, this isn’t a discussion that comes after the first 2 or 3 dates, however it’s definitely something that should be a topic of conversation at some point in time; determining the (future) expectations, as far as the child(ren) are concerned. Not Yours One of the major obstacles that I’ve faced being a single mom and dating is that many guys don’t understand how much time it takes to be a parent.
