Single guy dating single mom
Why is it that in any relationship, there's always that one unnerving deal breaker?
It doesn't matter how serendipitous your initial meeting was or how great of chemistry you two have... And when it does, you have to ask yourself: Do you settle, or do you break things off?
They want their alone time too because they never get it. There are so many positive traits that single moms possess because of the personal growth they went through and continue to go through with child rearing. These moms had to go deep into their hearts to pull out energy at times when they didn't have it.
If you don’t ask her out — no matter how innocuous or considerate the reason — she will assume you don’t want to see her. Leave the ask to the last minute, she has to scramble to find a sitter and that’s really uncool. This shows interest in one of the most important things in her life. Sounds cliche’, but I always appreciate it when a guy goes on about how much he adores his niece, or spends time with a friend’s baby. This isn’t necessary, and especially after you have been involved for a while you will likely sort out the who-pays-when conundrum. But she wants to feel like you’re interested in her in every part of her womanhood — including motherhood. If it has been more than a few months, or things get very serious very quickly, and she hasn’t brought up introducing the kids, bring it up.
Plus, it tells her (and any other woman, for that matter) that she was your Plan B for the evening. But if you really want to see her, give her plenty of time to sort out her schedule. In fact, if you DON’T appear interested in her family she’ll think that you’re not into kids. When a guy laughs at my funny-kid story, or is sympathetic about my mom worries, I’m in. But if you tend to take turns picking up the bill, but she sometimes rearranges her life to get out of the house and pays for a babysitter so she can spend time with you, acknowledge that. Know that when she invites you over, it is more work for her than when you invite her over.
For a long time, that deal breaker for me was dating a single mom.
I just couldn't wrap my head around potentially stepping in as the stepfather. Would he resent me for being involved with his mother? How would this affect him if we had more kids in the future? Questions like these were too difficult for me to answer, so I just avoided single moms like jorts on a summer day.

It wasn't particularly difficult because most of them are red flagged on dating sites. Single moms and my independent lifestyle pair together like cheese and wine! They shuffle to their ex's for custody arrangements.
