Single mom and looking

About finding a boy on April 20, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

What is the consensus about men dating single moms? I am an educated, attractive, fun to be with, early 20’s woman with a 7-month-old son. I broke up with his father about two months ago, but lost interest in the father about five to six months prior. I would like to meet someone, but am scared no one will want to date me because of my baby. Where would I meet a guy?

— Single Mom

Dear Single,

Yeah, it might be a little tricky. Everyone — male or female — who fantasizes about having all sorts of firsts with their soulmate might think, “No fair, s/he already got to do the kid thing with someone.”

Still, it can be done. I checked with my single mom friend Rachel — who, mind you, is getting remarried shortly! — and she says you definintely want to be discreet (but not cagey) at first. “I asked a guy to come into Toys R Us with me, and I never heard from him again,” she says. But she also pointed out that you do have a built-in screening process: it’s not that a guy for whom a kid is a deal-breaker is bad — but the ones who do stick around are, more than likely, way into you, and not freaked about the dad thing.

But where? By this point, Rachel’s 14-year-old daughter piped up. “Parent-teacher conferences!” Not a bad idea. But I bet you’ll find someone before your son is old enough to give advice.

  8. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform

    totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Kudos!

    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.

    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

    Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
    A number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer
    but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help
    fix this issue?

  18. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  21. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem
    fixed soon. Many thanks
