Dating for single mothers - 15 Things You Should Know Before Dating a Single Mom


The other stereotype against dating single mothers is that these women are not available to go out and spend time with a guy because of their parental obligations. While this is likely to be true for those women who have one or more toddlers at home and no help or ability to hire a baby-sitter, whether other women with children are available to go out and date depends on their time management skills – just like it is the case with any other woman.  Paradoxically, a woman’s availability to talk on the phone and in person seems to be inversely proportional to her professional status. How many times have you met a woman who held an executive business position and who returned her phone calls and e-mails much quicker than others? How many times have you met a professionally accomplished woman who would be more available to go out, while other women who are not “ranked” nearly as high in the business world took forever to get back to you and seem to be too busy to fit you in their lives?

"Re-entering the dating world is easier when you haven't been alone for too long," says Cantarella. "Once you've taken the time to recover from your divorce, you might want to try getting your feet wet. I've seen clients get overly comfortable being single , so when they re-enter the dating world it brings on a whole set of complexities. Like being 'set in their ways,' which makes it even more difficult to be open to someone new to share their lives with," Cantarella says.
