I'm very independent, I want him in my life, but I don't NEED him. I can deal with situations, problems, issues on my own. I can't afford not to have goals to work towards, or change my mind randomly on what they are. I love so deeply, I hold so much love because I am a mother.it shows. My children and being a good mom is something I'm so insanely passionate about. BUT I don't need designer jeans and handbags or to waste money on things I don't need. I'm very laid back, when you've fought to get through difficult times, you take the time to stop and appreciate the small stuff, and you know that making a huge issue of things, anything, will not get you very far. You, yourself could have had all of those qualities without having been a single mother. Can u not think of any benefits of dating ur SO or are u only with her cuz u don't have a better offer?
I don't need to run for help, or make melodramatic calls to him lol. They love that, and can see that in me, and everything i do for my children.8. I am comfortable in jeans and a hoody and my hair in a ponytail. Here i thought for once m_church might have something positive to say about dating single moms... I was really suprised that m_church is dating a single-mom and can see why he doesn't want his SO to read the posts he make... Does ur SO not include any benefits to make u stay around? Be interesting to see if m_church could come up with any positive benefits for dating a single mom.
She obviously can't hang out often and is more open to late night visits, etc. I meet up with them for coffee and then I have them. I do have a couple single moms in my main rotation and I only have to see them at most once a week. It's only a benefit to a man if he wants a casual lifestyle.

I do have a couple single moms in my main rotation and I only have to see them at most once a week. This single mom just got rid of a guy that thought once a week was enough to see me. I can sit home all by myself and watch what I want instead of having to sit and watch what he wants. This is assuming she has worked out all the post break up drama from the baby daddy. She won't have time to be out trying to get with other guys.
There is nothing that makes a group of men, or any individual man, cringe faster than the notion of dating a single mom.
A consensus for today’s single man is that single mom = baggage, and most men will shy away from it.
We spent our first date talking about our kids and the challenges of parenting — and realizing we have a lot in common. But when he started in on his daughter’s former ballet career, I was a goner.The benefits and positives should be of dating that woman, if you are open to the idea and you are capable of raising someone else's child(ren) at least part time. I rarely shop for myself, I don't need a new outfit every other week.For me personally and in my experience, as a single mom, the men I've dated loved these things [these are actual reasons men I've dated have given me]:1. Going out once and a while is fun, but I don't need to every weekend, or every month even. I work, I raise my kids, I keep a clean house, I cook 3 square meals a day - I spend my time doing positive, traditional motherly things. I aspire for so much, I have goals, because I want the best for my children. You really learn understand what;s truly important, and what's not.bipolarbarbie, While all of those qualities in your post are admirable, they are not exclusive to single mothers.Women with kids are busy and don't have as high of expectations.So if you're a man looking for variety and causal a single mom is perfect.
