For dating a single mom
The gal that you're interested in dating is a single mom. You're drawn to her because she is very mature and independent (and beautiful, no doubt)—you like that.But along with her fears, feelings, and needs that you have to be willing to give your all to, she might have a few kids that will need that same sort of support and love as well."Once the boyfriend is introduced there is no going back, and expectations are raised," she adds.What to do instead: Time is the best measure of knowing when to introduce the children.
A single mom is responsible for providing for her children's emotional, financial, and social support in addition to her own. Be someone who is willing to put aside everything that you are doing so that you can be excited or sad or angry or hopeful with the woman that is needing that support. Her Kids are Priority Number One If she says she's too busy with her kids to go out with you over the weekend, she probably really is busy with her kids.But, then again, I only heard that through the grapevine, so I may be wrong. Maybe sushi, but this definitely comes in as a close second.(I'm not wrong.) Rule #3: Do NOT Bring Up Her Ex That's none of your business … Sure, if you get into a more serious relationship with her, her ex will more than likely be brought up, but for the time being, get to know her—not why she is a single mom. Rule #4: Man Up and Be a Gentleman She may or may not have been emotionally broken in the past—you don't really know. Don't you dare split the check with her on the first date!Unfortunately, I've heard of stuff like that happening. and then wallow in sadness with a canned sandwich and instant oatmeal. I've found that being straight up with how you feel yields awesome benefits. Chances are she's already a little tender from stuff that's happened in the past.Rule #2: Cut the Crap and Quit Playing Games Playing games with your prospective partner's emotions is reserved for teenagers. Being honest and having good communication skills, from what I’ve heard, are of HUGE importance if you want a successful relationship. What's more enjoyable than a beautiful woman happily telling you about everything that she loves?
