Never take it personally unless she is clearly saying or doing things to hurt or upset you.The Ex Factor One of the most troubling hurdles for men to overcome when dating a single mom is the fact that the ex-husband or boyfriend may still be around, caring for his children.Until the mini people are old enough to get their own cereal and turn on the cartoons, there's no such thing as sleeping in. If you really want to impress everyone, let her sleep while you get the pancakes going and put the coffee on, or take everyone on a doughnut run. She probably doesn't need saving, but she definitely needs a massage. But women new to single motherhood may still be learning how to balance their new dating life with their job as a full-time single mom.Be patient while she adjusts and when she expresses her emotions or feelings about dating as a mother the best thing you can do is listen.
Be Patient Single mothers are often torn between their two identities – that of a loving and attentive mother and that of a single woman. If you're dating a seasoned single mother you may find she is a lot easier on herself about dating you, and allowing herself appropriate time to spend with you.
Trust me when I say, you have no reason to be jealous or worried about any kind of relationship developing if you are dating a seasoned single mom.
If you are with a very recently single mother she may still have feelings for her ex, after all, they did have a child together. Dating someone when an ex is still in the picture, even moreso when it is her child's father, can be a bit awkward at first. Single moms have much, much more to worry about than when you're going to call next.
Doing otherwise can end up making your kids angry or jealous. It's natural to feel like a teenager with raging hormones when you start dating again.
When it's time for the kids to meet this great new man, make it a casual meeting somewhere other than home. But the bedroom is not the best place to start a relationship.
