Just because you fancy a date doesn’t mean you are looking for someone to fill a void.Also, for anyone dating a single parent, we aren’t necessarily looking for an immediate co-parent, we are looking for a date – those are two very different things.Single parent dating sites can be there for people when they need a new beginning.I have a close family friend whose parents divorced when she was young, and it was a tough experience for everyone to go through.
Never think that you are doing anything wrong by wanting some time for yourself.
That’s your territory, especially in the early days.
I had a boyfriend once who wanted to get way too involved too quickly, and my child just doesn’t need the potential disruption that would cause.
The problem is theirs, don’t waste time feeling like it’s yours.
Which leads on to…It’s so easy to fall into the trap of believing you have to explain how you came to be a single parent.For this reason, I wouldn’t introduce the person I am dating to my son as my ‘boyfriend’.
