Dating care single
Here's what they had to say: Single mom Honoree Corder believes in the power of personal happiness.
And now I am not just a single entity -- I am a package deal. I imagine it will be terrifying to date and decide who and when to introduce to my son.Right now we only have babysitters and we have time limits because of it. The child is only a child once, but I'll have plenty of time to date when he is older. It was always a "someday/maybe." And even then, she was considerate about my duties as a parent, particularly a single parent, and that my relationship with my son was my primary one. I'm in a similar position in having no family nearby, and only *very* recently making friends of my son's friend's parents. I'm not sure how to answer your question, but I just want to mention that it would be a red flag for me to be with someone who is 'non-negotiable' about the fact that I can't leave my child at the drop of a hat or for long stretches of time to nurture the relationship with them.Are you a single parent looking for a serious long term relationship?Single Parent Love is a popular single parent dating website helping single moms and single dads find their match. I am a single mom and my ex husband is not in the picture. I've been dating someone long distance for about 7 months and we now live in the same area here in the bay. The problem is, even though it has been almost a year, it is still a really new relationship because we haven't really spent much alone time together to explore and nurture the relationship. I never could figure it out, and I haven't dated in over 10 years. As you implied, you are a parent first and foremost. There are some people who want to be parents now and some who do not.
We are having problems right now that are turning into non-negotiables for the person I am dating, and that is we are not able to have alone time when we want or to go anywhere together because I have to plan it. i don't have a network of family or friends here to help with child care and babysitters become really expensive, especially with potential overnights. Really after my kid is in daycare all afternoon because I have to work, the last thing I want to do is also leave him with a babysitter, even with family or friends. Find other people, preferable within a few blocks, who have a kid about the same age who is compatible with yours. I'd be careful with this one - I know lots of folks who have kids and date and this is not really an issue because most reasonable people understand what it means to parent, but at the risk of jumping to conclusions (though I think it's a reasonable one to draw) your partner seems to be on the selfish side and that's not a good thing for you or your son, fwiw. I dated someone for about 2 years who didn't want to be a parent.

But whether your partner likes it or not, the scheduling and limited time is the default position here.
It will *always* be limited and somewhat distracted, particularly as you focus on building your support network.
The takeaway here is that you are a package deal, and although your date doesn't have to want to jump on the stepparent bandwagon, they at least have to accept the time restraints involved.
