Dating moms with young children
By Tracy Achen Are you looking for some dating tips to ease your way back into the singles scene? Its uncharted territory, but it can be very rewarding to step outside your comfort zone.
Dating after your divorce can be intimidating not only logistically, but also emotionally. Dating as a single parent is a whole different ballgame than it was before you had kids. It can sometimes seem like everyone has an opinion about whether you should date or not.
You survived that, and not only are you better for it – you’re sexier for it. Age and childbearing has allowed you to enjoy your body for all it has to offer. When I met my husband in my mid-twenties, I was still struggling to make my way professionally. When we do have time for boyfriends, we make the very most of it. There is less temptation to piddle away hours with losers just because you’re lonely.
We are all free to make up whatever dating preferences we want.
They are called personal preferences for a reason and we don’t need the approval of anyone else when it comes to what we like.

” First, whether a man has children of his own or not, there is nothing wrong with preferring to date women without children.
It’s very common for guys with kids to write in their OKCupid profiles: “My kids come first,” or “My daughter is the center of my world! You want a potential mate to know that your life includes the giant presence of a kid or four. Plus, if you’ve gone through divorce or another crisis that landed you as a single parent, you are no doubt concerned about giving your kids extra care and sense of security. But it is even trickier if one or both of the parents put the kids before their partner.
