Suddenly, in the midst of great conversation, he blurted out a stream of disjointed sentences. In Aaron's mind, a seemingly endless and awkward pause ensued before Natalia smiled and said, "Aaron, I know you are a single dad, I read your profile." I've heard this scene play out a few dozen times over. Aaron, a single dad of two, wondered if an extra two would make three a crowd for his date, Natalia, a single woman with no kids. I'm a dad of two." Natalia recoiled a bit, mostly due to Aaron's instant change in behavior from clever and cavalier to uncomfortable.Foul 2: Nobody likes me As a parent, you may feel like other singles don't want to date you, but cut out that 'woe is me' act!You're a parent - you don't have a life threatening disease.Eventually, though, the pain started to heal, they all fell into a routine that worked for them, and the parents started thinking about dating again.
But once you have a child, you cannot take it back. Third, single mothers profoundly misunderstand men. There are few men who are overjoyed to spend their blood, sweat and tears on some other guy’s genetic offspring. A woman who cares so little about her children, her own prospects, and her future husband is NOT going to make a great wife. Oh, and in return, you have to make HER the center of your life. When you meet a divorced single mother, immediately start looking for the flaw. Something that drove another man to pledge his undying love to her, to have and to hold, from this day forth, and then sometime later decide “fuck this shit. Be very cautious around a woman who takes none of the blame for her failed marriage.

I have a close family friend whose parents divorced when she was young, and it was a tough experience for everyone to go through.
Their world was turned upside down as she went from a full household to living with just her mom and seeing her dad a couple of times a week.
