Why you shouldn’t date single moms

Why you shouldn’t date single moms

“To be honest, I don’t really date women with kids, but we can have fun.”

EW. Get ready for a rant.

I know, I know, another post on dating a single mom. Why it’s great, why it’s only for dudes with their lives together, yadda yadda.

But really, this is important.

You don’t date single moms? GREAT! I don’t date little boys, so it looks like you never stood a chance anyways.

date a single mom

Dating a single mom is a privilege and you should feel honored that she is giving you one second of her time to even consider dating you.

Because single moms are busy as hell, single moms don’t have time to waste screwing around and playing games.

Contrary to what many people seem to believe, we don’t need you to be our child’s father, or to come and rescue us from a life of stress and poverty (and if you think that’s the life we’re living, then you’re judgment is a little skewed in the first place.)

All we want is to date you, to get to know you and spend some quality time with you. We’re not looking for a knight in shining armor to come and sweep us off our feet into a fairytale life.

We’re pretty level headed, actually.

We have to be, because we have way too much shit to deal with in a typical day. If our head wasn’t screwed on straight, our world would burn to the ground quite literally.

So when you say, “I don’t date women with kids,” particularly when you approach us, you look like a damn fool. And then if you follow that statement up with, “but we can have fun,” the only fun we’re ever going to have is me laughing in your face at how stupid you are.

And you might not find that very fun.

So please, if this is your view of women with kids, then please YOU should not date single moms.

YOU should not even approach single moms.

We are not a fetish, we are busy, amazing, caring women and far too grown for you and your games and we get enough judgment as single moms, we don’t need yours too.

Single moms: have you ever been approached like this?

But why are you a single mom? Did you choose the wrong man and he left you with child, alone to raise said child by yourself? Good job. Now that man is going to hover over your life forever while l try to get to know you? Are you serious?

So let me make this very clear. As a 33 year old male with no debt and a college degree earned from being in the military. I have no sympathy nor time for anybody that has made the mistake of reproducing with a none long-term compatible lover.

I don't care what the excuses is, I don't care what happened, I don't care what the situation was that made you have that baby. If you're younger than me then I know for a fact you had a chance at getting an abortion if you aren't ready to have a child.

Well I can absolutely agree that single mothers should be avoiding men who are not openly looking to date a woman with a kid. I can fully state that any anger towards a man who tells you "I don't date single moms" because you have a child is is quite immature.

Your body your choice you made your decisions. Just like his wallet his money.

Thank you. I’m a sibhole mom and I’ve had this lately. I don’t want to date a man child so good to weed them out early. Especially during a stressful time like this.

Wow! This makes me glad that I haven’t wanted to date if that’s what’s out there. The truth is for me at least, I don’t get lonely (just a side effect from not getting to go to the bathroom by yourself I guess) so I’ve never even had an interest in dating and I’ve been single for almost 5 years now. No man is worth the time away from my children, but that’s me and to each their own. Feeling extra thankful that these are my feelings instead of wishing I was with someone about now. No matter what your situation is remember your worth ladies and if you’re a single mom then it’s just doubled or tripled or quadrupled depending on how many children you have!!
