Single parent dating after divorce
Adult interaction is also vital to avoid the pitfall of relying too heavily on children to fill the gap left by an adult.
As a single parent, you have adult needs for intimacy, understanding, companionship, reassurance, encouragement and romance that can only be fulfilled by another adult.
Often children are more accepting of Dad's dating than of Mom's dating.
You are better equipped emotionally to handle a series of up and down dating relationships than your children.Are you willing to date a single parent (scheduling can be a real problem, but another single parent should have true empathy for you and your situation)?Getting back into the dating scene again can be frightening.The best places to meet new people are in places where you are most comfortable: at your place of worship, a volunteer organization, or you might even want to spread your flirting wings by testing them safely on an online dating site.Socializing with your kids along can be a good way to ease back into the social scene.
