Single mom dating man without kids
I am not looking for a provider; I provide very well for myself.
I just want a friend and a companion and someone who I have chemistry and intellectual compatibility with.
Dear Christina, Before I give you the pep talk you need, let me first acknowledge the painful truths that you’ve eloquently outlined above. Having four kids under the age of 9 is a huge handicap.
I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.
I went out with a girlfriend in Montclair, NJ, to a fun place called Just Jakes. It was a little deceiving, sure, but I thought telling the guys I was a single mom would influence their answers—and I wanted raw thoughts.
It was lovely being out sans Jack, having a cold beer at the bar, surrounded by other adults enjoying drinks, conversation, and music.

The fact that you’re caring, kind, loyal, warm, and intelligent means that you have a lot going for you and will ultimately make a guy very happy.The crowd was a mix of college guys and young professionals.

I would absolutely go on a date with a single mom and see where it could lead.I don’t have kids, but I want kids, so if she already has one or two, it would be a bonus.There’s no way that I – or most men who don’t have their shit together – would willingly enter into a relationship with a woman who has so many other responsibilities, the way all moms do.At risk of making myself look bad, I once dated a single mom of a two-year-old.
