As a single parent, it’s safe to say you’ve got a lot on your plate. Not only do you have to keep up with your own daily responsibilities, but you also have to make sure your kids are fed, their homework is done, and they have everything they need to live a happy and healthy life. And you’re doing all of that without the help and support of a partner! So, naturally, the thought of adding dating to the mix might seem downright daunting to you. Fortunately, I have a wealth of dating tips for single parents that will hopefully eliminate some stress from the process — because that’s the last thing you need more of.
I totally get it, because I, myself, was a single mom at one point raising my daughter. It can feel next to impossible to find the time and muster up the energy to put yourself out there, and you may also feel hesitant about introducing someone new into your kids’ lives. I’m here to tell you that A) you deserve to find love and B) you totally can, without compromising your family and household, or your kids’ happiness.
Maybe you’re a little afraid of rejection or failure after how your last relationship ended. Or maybe you’re worried about how your kids will react to you dating someone new. Maybe you’re unsure how to go about introducing them, or you’re not even sure where to meet people. The good news is — you can totally nail this. After all, single parents are basically superheroes. So, as long as you keep the following things in mind, your journey back into dating should be smooth sailing.
