You think you know everything about dating a single mom? Unless you’ve dated one, your expectations and “knowledge” about dating one are either fake or a little less true than it actually is. And perhaps the only thing you got right is the fact that she has a kid/kids and nothing else.
Common Myths About Dating a Single Mom
So whether or not you’re looking to date a hot single mommy, here’s one good place to start getting to know them. Let’s debunk 5 of the most common myths about dating single moms.
MYTH NO. 1: THEY ARE EASY.
Hah! Au contraire senor. If you think singleness and motherhood in midlife makes them feel less attractive and more desperate for a relationship, I’d love to be the one to burst your bubble. On the contrary, single moms are more discerning, develop a more discriminating standard for men they date, and are in fact harder to get, so to speak. They know that their foremost priority is their kid and so the last thing they’d want to do is jump into a relationship hastily, putting herself and her child in a difficult or worse, traumatizing situation. Her every dating endeavor is geared towards something hopeful so if you’re just looking for a game, she ain’t a willing player.
MYTH NO. 2: THEY WILL ALWAYS TALK ABOUT THEIR KIDS.
Trust me, they’d love nothing more than time away from talking about anything that concerns kids. With their hands full with child-rearing adult conversations on dates are more than just welcome. So don’t worry about having to breeze through two hours of boring conversations centered on her kid’s first tooth coming out, or he annoying mom at the daycare or how her nanny dresses like a slut. They have enough of that with their BFFs and their moms so they’d spare you from it on a date.
MYTH NO. 3: SINGLE MOMS ARE WEAK AND LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO RESCUE THEM.
Mother Nature has so designed females of all species to become stronger at motherhood. So if you think that she’s getting in a relationship so she has someone to share her burdens with, and if you think that she needs you more than you need her and that she won’t survive without you, think again. Women become stronger when they have someone depending on them, and so don’t feel too self-important in her life. You’re probably at the bottom of her priority list and she’s likely to kick you out at the first sign of problem if you prove unworthy. Here’s the fundamental relationship advice for the guys.
MYTH NO. 4: THEY ARE EXPENSIVE TO DATE.
Unless they’re gold diggers or high maintenance even before motherhood, their being mothers does not make them any more expensive than the average woman. They might even be more economical, becoming aware of the perils of budgeting and real life expenses so they choose to be low maintenance. She won’t ask you to buy her kid’s next carton of milk or her next batch of groceries anyway so there’s not a thing to worry about Plus, they’re more self-sufficient and independent-minded she won’t even let you pay or the second date.
MYTH NO. 5: THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THEIR LOOKS.
With pregnancy and children putting its toll on her body, and with so much competition in the dating arena, she’s likely to work extra hard on looking good. She knows what she’s up for when she put herself out there for a relationship so she would surely prepare for it. And no, she won’t show up on dates smelling like baby puke or with food residue on her hair.
