While you may find a single mom at the most hip, happening nightclub in your greater metropolitan area, dressed to kill in thigh-high black leather boots and a mini-skirt the size of a postage stamp, that’s only because she spent the previous 48 hours making arrangements that enabled her to leave the Planet of Motherhood.
With all of that in mind, check out a few specific tips on how to treat that hot single mom in a way that will have her begging for more: Be understanding about where she’s coming from.
Then, as you get to know her a little more, you learn her idiosyncrasies.
You become more comfortable, less cautious, more willing to share your feelings, yourself, and maybe you even learn new things about yourself.
The more people you know who are willing to help, the less pressure you are putting on the same person to cover you when it comes to child care for all of your dates.
Especially if the person who usually babysits is the other parent of your child (awkward).
To others, the word summons horrific memories of blind dates that made you want to run for the hills.
For me, the word triggers memories of blown money, awkward silences, over-analyzed text messages, and just straight-up awkwardness.
I have nothing new to say about life as a mom, as a single mom, as a surrogate or as any other classification that hasn’t already been said or published. I left Facebook and Twitter at the end of September, 2013. There is nothing extraordinary to be gleaned from my life.The truth is, you’re not going to find that special someone if you’re not looking, no matter what the rom coms you watch with a glass of wine after the kids have gone to bed tell you.The main problem with this however, is that it often feels as though there are just not enough hours in the week to run a family, work and have a social life.
