Single parent dating problems
If you do make it past the initial dating phase and get introduced to her kid(s), you are not going to have a big say in how her kid(s) should be disciplined.
In fact, most single moms will make it clear that you are not allowed to discipline until you have earned the respect of the child or children involved.
In fact, the latest statistics I could find was that there were 10 million single mothers in the U. in 2013 with children under the age of 18 – source.
Therefore, whether you are looking for a single mom or not, you may just meet one who has all the traits you are looking for in a woman.
Many single moms have been used or abused and then left to fend for themselves.
This can cause them to go one of two ways: they become stronger women or they become weaker women. Stronger women will learn from the experience and not be willing to accept any guy who treats her poorly into her life anymore.
The above points may not seem very negative to you. But, many of the above issues can cause serious conflicts in the relationship, and hindsight is not something you want to rely on when it comes to time, energy, and happiness.
22 million children in the US go home to one parent and approximately 83 percent of these parents are moms.
A date may get canceled last minute because a babysitter canceled last minute.
Or, if her children are older, unexpected behavior problems may get in the way of her being able to go out freely.
I’ve seen some single mothers hold on to relationships with complete jerks, just because they are the father of the children.
It is instinctual to want your kids to have a relationship with their father, and if you are not willing to put up with him being in your lives, then a lot of conflict is going to follow.
