Single parent dating with Crolivecam
For this reason, I wouldn’t introduce the person I am dating to my son as my ‘boyfriend’.
Perhaps it’s only natural for the person you are dating to think about the future with you, given your life situation as a parent.But it’s taken me a while and a lot of bad dates to get here. When I first returned to dating, I didn’t mention my son on my online dating profiles, or when I met men in real life.Because of the stigma surrounding single parents and myths I was believing at the time, my subconscious told me I would have more luck keeping my profile baby-free. On my first date after being pregnant, dumped and giving birth – when my self-esteem had hit rock bottom – I sat opposite a man who visibly quivered when I revealed I was a mum and compared my child to his ongoing battle with Crohn’s disease.I’m happy to confirm that my son has positively transformed my life in so many ways, he’s the most wonderful and perfectly-timed gift I could have wished for.Plus, having a child helps you put things in perspective; I’m ten times more confident and capable now.
