First off, to all single mothers, being one myself, it is a lot. A lot to take out the garbage, do your taxes, keep the young ones living AND take care of you. YET among the best things you can do to help yourself to be an excellent mother is: HEAL your past wounds from divorce or a reduction, and second: KNOW that if you do not make time for being a WOMAN… your parenting endures… as does your self-esteem.
Thus reentering the dating scene can be a excellent way to give yourself signature, kindness, support and pleasure in business of a terrific man who appreciates you. To attract him, you will want to take time to have clarity about what you need and want in a partnership… and take the time to cultivate your sensual side, getting a hot invitation to a high quality guy to claim you, encourage you, love you and be fueled by your compliments and appreciation of him.
Do not hold back on your internet profiles really painting the image of the life you choose, saying how happy it makes you if your spouse does xxx. Never conceal that fact that you are a mom. Be proud you are a package deal and use it like a pre-qualifier for guys who would not ever consider step daddy roles. Bear in mind, as a busy mother, there isn’t any time to waste on somebody who’s mediocre, somebody who does not call back or keep his word. Use your prized limited free time so far as a single mother, as powerful self-confidence to know you’re a trophy and be quick to say thank you but no thank you if they do not honor or respect you.
DO be willing for him not to look like what you believed, sometimes what we had been drawn to in our old relationships (that did not work) could use some upgrading. I was attracted to the Master of the Universe guys, who impressed me with his achievements yet did not have time for me. These single men dating frequently complain about flaky girls.
