Parent starts dating
Your date night shouldn’t center around your messy divorce and custody battle.Those conversations can come when you’re more comfortable with the relationship. Your potential partner has their own set of concerns, whether it’s being around a child, being a second priority to you, or even being upstaged by your ex.Talking about an ex is pretty taboo to begin with, but as a dating single parent you might be asking a future partner to deal with your ex being involved in your life. If they’re rude about the situation, then you should let them go.But if they’re being honest in telling you that they’re nervous, then give them a break.
And once you find an awesome babysitter, hold onto them.Whether your last relationship was a marriage or a short-lived fling, there’s never a right or wrong time to start dating.As a mom, your heart is already full of love for the tiny person you created.It had been a long time since I viewed myself as an individual rather than a wife or a mother. I was no longer looking for someone to complete my life – that role belonged to my daughter.
