Single mother of 2 dating site

Rated 3.85/5 based on 566 customer reviews

It doesn’t get any easier as time passes, but a combination of wine, leaving some clothes on and having the lighting low works for me.Things with Jack unfortunately fizzled out after a year or so – he was having a second youth of constant holidays and weekend breaks that I just couldn’t join in on, as much as I loved his approach to life.I do realise this all sounds pretty depressing, but then, by some miracle, when I’d been single for around a year I met Jack* – someone I really liked who seemed to really like me.As his kids were grown up, he didn’t suggest we have our first date at a soft play area or express his disdain for solo parents.At first, it seemed exciting creating profiles on and Plenty of Fish and immediately getting loads of messages.But I soon got the wind knocked out of my sails when I opened up to friends and family about my newfound love life.Another man I dated for a few months got annoyed that I couldn’t spontaneously go to London for a long weekend because I had Josh.

And, of course, the only way to find guys if you’re at home every night while your child is asleep is online dating.I realise I’m not a teenager any more, but that doesn’t mean I want to fast-track to a relationship that involves arguing over the remote control when Match of The Day is on.Then there is simply my lack of free time – my son goes to stay with his dad every other weekend, so I have precisely 48 hours a fortnight to have fun. In truth, I doubt we’re even seen as a great catch and imagine lots of people think I should just settle for whoever I’m lucky enough to get.Their comments made me feel that my desire for dating and sex meant I wasn’t measuring up as a mum in some way.But I seriously doubt any single dads ever receive the same type of criticism.
