Dating a divorced mom
She has too many responsibilities that keep her firmly grounded. It is almost a given that she is in search of a serious relationship.
She wants to get to know you and assess whether you are relationship material before introducing you to her kids.
You also have to put food on the table, keep a roof over the family’s head, and, at times, deal with an irrational ex.
On top of those things, you naturally want to date and hopefully enjoy a fulfilling sex life.
Where there are problems, communication is important.
Everyone heals differently; a reliable support network will certainly help the process.
Therapists and counselors can also offer healthy ways of coping with all the changes in your life.
Before pursuing a relationship, make sure you’re comfortable with it. A single mom won’t introduce you to her kids until she knows it’s serious.
Any single mom will place her children above you as a priority. If she must choose, who to take a bullet for, don’t be surprised to learn that it’s not you! If you have your own children in the mix as well, it takes careful scheduling. For it to become serious, you need time alone to explore your relationship.
Whether you are a mother or father, after divorce, life changes dramatically.
