If you are a single dad and are fortunate enough to have a daughter, you know that raising her can feel like a roller coaster ride at times. Women tend to know how to relate to their daughters because of their own experiences growing up, going through puberty, and dealing with sexuality.
These are great questions, Sandra I think only you can find the ultimate answer for yourself, but I do hope some of your age peers chime in with their experience. However, I will say this: Why stay off the market to do your research? What about dating, casually, without sex (or with, should the mood strike), as you explore what you want, how that fits with men you 8767 re meeting, and take it from there? Thoughts?
well the issue here is that had it been the other way round . he had the job, house etc. then you could have taken everything off him through the biased courts system. He would have been left with nothing. How would you have felt losing your kids, house, assets and having to pay a good chunk of your salary on child maintenance? This is a very real issue that man men face each day. As it stands you got the kids and kept your house, assets and money. Marriage, kids etc. are just very, very risky for would be fathers these days.
Yours is an extraordinary and very rare story. Most single mothers are single mothers because they are selfish, stupid and uncaring.
6. They 8767 re still them but also not them. Deep down at the core. Maybe they seem distracted or busy or having to work, but deep deep down they 8767 re still the person that you loved. They still probably love the things they did. Nurture that remind them of those things. I love to garden but it took me almost two years before I wanted to garden again. Just like everything sometimes it takes time to get back to you. But listen, divorce and separation changes someone and oftentimes in that process it 8767 s a bit of shedding of old self and identities so that the new person can emerge and thrive. The greatest gift you can give your friend is to love her through this process and not remind her of who she was but rather love her for who she is becoming.

I agree with this. I was nothing but gold to my ex and her daughter. She treated me like dirt and she had been around the block more then once and she doesn 8767 t even really know who the daddy is. Her daughter loved me and cried when her mom left me. Plus her family still loves me. My ex is the only one to hate me
In contrast, there are guys who avoid talking about the ‘mom side’ of a single mom’s life completely. They don’t engage in conversations about the children and kind of act like they don’t exist. If you do this, it just gives the impression that you’re not comfortable with the fact she has kids. Her kids are a massive part of her life and she spends a lot of time with them, if you ask her how her week has been it will have involved her children. It doesn’t mean you’re going to be introduced to them any time soon, if ever. If it’s an issue, then don’t date a Mom.
After being a single mom for three years, I discovered things about myself I'd never had the opportunity to find out when I was married: I was independent and accomplished, and I was able to run a household, bring home a paycheck, and take excellent care of my kids. My children learned just how much we all have to depend on each other -- and on others -- to function as a family. As a result, they became more responsible and empathetic. And my ex-husband? Dear reader, I remarried him, and we now have two more kids together. I didn't set out to achieve this particular happy ending, and I know that it might sound strange. But my husband and I needed to go out into the world and learn some life lessons. Once we learned to do it alone, we were ready to do it together -- again.
Never cleaned the house, managed to mess it up but complained of the pain from her health problems made it too painful to clean it up. It was bad. Like 9 days of the kids breakfast dishes side by side on the kitchen table. I 8767 d have to run the dishwasher three times in a row to catch up on dishes. I measured the clean laundry that needed to be put away in cubic yards (usually about 8). And she never worked a day when she was with me. Bad. quarter million fruit flies in my house bad and I never had a fruit fly problem before in my life save for a couple when I had an old banana on the counter.
