On line dating for single parents
During my first year as a single mom, I was hunting – . I’m afraid of my son always seeing me as the bad person because I have to be the responsible parent. After that, his relationship with his children all but dissolved.One year, many bad dates and a new apartment later I started this blog about being a single mom… Start at the beginning , watch my videos or catch up with a copy of Ms. There definitely are good men to be found, as far as being a partner in the crime of raising children. In the meantime, just keep having fun and enjoy as much of little Benjamin’s life as you can!She is quite angry and has a lot of rage and is blaming you for hurting feminism.
I found this site because I have a friend who is a single Mom and I thought this would help me understand her plight a bit better and it sounds like she has had experiences similiar to many of yours- The biological father of her child abusive, not paying child support etc etc.
It would be so different to come to the title that says… Explaining to us parts of your life and along the way sharing with us that you have a son and maybe nothing at all about your relationship status. Those people that get married, have children, and STICK TOGETHER, are entitled to all the respect and prestige. Single parents, while I don't believe they should be ashamed of themselves, are deserving of less respect and prestige as married couples with children. Nor will you have a house or any land to pass down to your child. What about Widows, are their children not going to amount to anything? At least now, when I feel lonely it’s because I’m on my own, not because I’m with my unavailable partner. PS-Now I can buy my favorite juice AND actually drink some of it….. I do not feel so desperate to meet another partner as I did the first time around and that is a huge relief.
I feel that your blog is a way of saying: "hey, look at me! " Now, I don't want to be cruel, but you should know that your child will have less options than a lot of others. I'm not sure you are aware of the gravity of your situation. What…if a child has no Dad ,they can’t have a great life? My ex drank a large carton of juice at a sitting, and never did any shopping let alone contributing finacncially, so I gave up buying it. The hardest thing about being a single parent is feeling lonely and having low or what felt like no self-esteem.
It’s very nice to see a women that “survived” a less than perfect relationship and is willing to share the details of her life as she moves on. but what I am saying is that this is a personal aspect of your life that unfairly stresses responsibility when people really would just like to know your name. I have no regrets and for the first time I’m completely comfortable in my own skin! Thank you for being a strong voice for all of us single parents out there. Reply I have to say in the middle of a bad economy…tons of layoffs…being a single parent which is never easy.even tougher now.
You serve as an inspiration for some and an enigma for others. I think this may turn more men off then it attracts. I am up late because I am trying to find additional income outlets.one can do but soo much online activities…and then I start looking up single mom outlets…and I stumbled on your site and have been wrapped in it for atleast 40 minutes…and most things give me instant ADD so this is a record. Reply Wow – 1st to somewhere above comment from ‘Ben Dover’ – well it is obvious what a narrow minded, judgmental person it takes to write such crap.
