5 Common Myths About Dating a Single Mom

business-motherYou 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.

How to Become a Real Life Prince Charming

Before you raise your eyebrows and start waving your not-so-royal bank accounts at me, here’s one thing you should know: you don’t have to be rich to become a woman’s prince charming. Being prince charming is not about how many castles you own or having the grandest white horse in the world; being a prince charming is knowing how to sweep a woman off her feet and look effortless about it.

Prince Charming.

Prince Charming.

Women these days may have long gone from being damsels in distress and are gearing towards becoming modern day Audrey Hepburn’s, but that does not make Princes Charming any less, well, charming. Everyone wants to be swept off their feet once in a while, after all.

So, if being the perfect Prince Charming is your ultimate dating resolution for the year 2014, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Read on for tips on how to become a real-life, in the flesh, non-randomly singing, modern day Prince Charming:

  • Learn a thing or two about Old World gentlemanly charm. Take a cue from your grandpa and his buddies. Real gentlemen know how to talk to women (aka they don’t call women any derogatory name, not even jokingly), how to treat women (aka they still open the doors for women), and how to love women (aka they love one woman at a time and treat her like she’s the world to him). Read this article on attracting women.
  • A Prince Charming knows his manners. You don’t spit in public, cuss in public, eat noisily (unless you’re eating ramen, it’s practically required), or talk to elders disrespectfully. Review your basic etiquette guide.
  • A Prince Charming knows how to compliment his woman, in words and in deeds. It does more than just telling her how beautiful she is; you have to show her that too to make the compliment real and sincere. It’s in the way you look at her while saying your compliment; the way you hold her hand, or how slowly you walk when you’re together because you want to savor each moment you’re with her. Complimenting your woman is showing her all the good things you tell her. She sings well? Ask her to sing to you more often. She’s good in arts? Frame that last sketch she made of you. Show, don’t just tell – that’s the way to compliment a lady.
  • Always make an effort. Come by at night bearing pizza and chocolates when she’s sad. Gracefully make an exit and don’t make a big deal out of her PMS tantrum. Go to poetry reading with her because she’s reading one that night, even when everyone else bores you to death. Take her to the zoo because she’s never seen the penguins. It’s about taking that extra step just to make sure that she’s extra happy. That’s how you sweep a woman off her feet – with your small and simple daily gestures, not the offbeat, grandiose but occasional ones.

PS: Use cautiously; they can take you to the friendzone if used on the wrong person.
