As a single parent, it’s probably hard for you to meet people. You’re busy with one or several kids and besides that, these kids probably love your ex as a parent still. They might be resistant to the fact that you need to move on with your love life and look for someone who is far more compatible with you than your ex. So what are you supposed to do?
If you need help with single parent dating, you’re not alone. There are still plenty of options for you and you will eventually find someone to connect with. However, this time you’ll be more likely to find someone compatible if you do the right things.
The most important thing to remember in single parent dating is that you probably know who you are now. You might not have when you didn’t have kids. Your expectations are different now and you probably know what you want. In a dating situation, this should come across at least somewhat. No one likes someone who is making demands. However, you should make certain things clear, especially if they’re important to you and you haven’t felt valued in the past.
Sometimes dates don’t work out. That’s perfectly reasonable and understandable. If you feel like your inability to be honest is what has caused your recent situation, now is the opportunity to change that. You should able to start over fresh so be sure that if you’re interested in someone, he or she is willing to handle your honesty. After all, he or she might be trying to start over as well so you should respect his or her willingness to be honest with you just as much as he or she should respect yours. Honesty at the beginning of a relationship will only help it move forward in the right direction.
