It’s safe to allow the woman you’re dating to tell you what she’s looking for, and if you’re listening, you might not even need to have a formal conversation about it.
Generally, single moms are straightforward in expressing what they’re looking for in a relationship, whether that’s a “good time guy” who brings spice into her busy, often monotonous days, or a man looking to settle down and be a responsible partner. One of the most difficult challenges of being a mother is that, after having children, people stop seeing you as a human being with human needs.
On almost every sugar baby and sugar daddy website the words "pamper" and "spoil" are everywhere, emphasizing the transactional nature of the relationship.
Not long after the earliest online dating services, including and e Harmony, launched, sugar baby websites took the concept and turned it on its head.
Many of us are re-entering the dating game for the first time since the insidious creation of social media, thus we have no idea how this new sh*t goes.
And so we sit around like our mothers and aunties used to, talking about the good old days as they played spades and gossiped about whose old man was doing what.
So here you go: the dos and don’ts of dating single moms. Listen, some of us chose to leave our romantic situations and aren’t desperate to enter others.
We’ve done it the “wrong” way (because, clearly, if our past relationship with co-parent was functional, we’d likely still be there). All that to say, we have very little free time and we want to enjoy it, so help us to curate a good experience for the both of us, or let us stay home catching up on the 15 magazines collecting dust on the floor next to our bed.
