Dating as a Single Mom

Dating Do’s is a SMORE Theme

Do you feel lonely?  You may think a relationship will solve your problems. Many single moms jump into another relationship before they have analyzed the problems in the previous one.

It is natural to want the love and affection of a man. It is also dangerous to think a relationship will solve all your problems.

There is one very important thing you can do. It is also a most difficult achievement.

When in a relationship or hoping for one – TAKE YOUR TIME!

And spend some of that time with your children.

I am not a professional counselor, just a tough old bird with a soft spot for single moms.

    As I begin to read this post “Dating As A Single Mom” I wondered to myself, how does Mrs. Gail know what is on my mind. I recently decided to begin dating again but this time setting boundaries for myself and the guy. While reading some of your posts they reminded me to pace myself when dating or getting to know someone and not to rush. Your postings on dating and men have truly been helpful and encouraging.
