Because if the stars all align, LSBG, you could find yourself in the right-guy-place at the right-guy-time.
In other words, stop waiting for a guy to come along and make you more extroverted by insemination.
Don’t make the assumption that friends and co-workers would set you up on dates if they knew someone who was right for you.
As a seven-year veteran of this single-parent-dating game, I feel well qualified to dish out some advice.
A kiddo shouldn't be the end of my sex and romantic life, help needed. People ask this question a lot—how do I find someone—but phrase it in all sorts of different ways. People have been crying over this love stuff for thousands of years—and keeping my ass in business for tens—so you're not the only person on Earth who feels this way.
Hell, you're not the only person on your block who feels this way. And the easiest way to avoid bitterness, LSBG, is by getting out there doing shit. Keep meeting up with guys from apps for quick coffee dates, of course, but get out there and do shit you enjoy without the goal of meeting the "right" guy every time you leave the house.
Through my circle of friends and single moms I meet through this blog, I often hear cries of horror about the thought of single mom dating. What man in his right mind would date someone with so much baggage? Whether the single part was by way of divorce, breakup, death or choice, it was a big deal, and that changed you. I have lunches to make and doctor appointments to schedule. Busy single moms have fewer lonely nights to fill, fewer dinners eaten alone.
