The more things change the more things stay the same. Dating as a single mom or single dad was not easy in the 50's and it really has not gotten much easier. The concerns and dangers are still the same. Are you a single parent scared of dating again? Do you think it is easier for a single mom to date? Or is it easier for a single dad to date? Either way if it was truly easy everyone would be doing it don't you think?
Below are just a few questions I get asked when it comes to alleviating the fears of single parents.
A) Who can you trust to care for your kid How much is the babysitter?
B) Will you kid(s) act up..in short will they destroy the house and scare the sitter.
C) And of course will you be able to truly be in the moment thinking about what your kids are doing.
No single parent dating is not a walk in the park but it really is necessary for you to have an active social life even if it is simply a walk in the park. So take a chance and jump in with two feet just remember to keep your snorkel gear on just in case. I'm just saying if not know than when? It is summer after all and everyone needs to have a little summer fun.
Just so you know 'for real tho' that you are not alone please note the figures and stats on Single Parents:
