3 Reasons Why I Like Dating Single Fathers

Treat single fathers like you would treat childless men. What I mean is that you always take into account one's character. We know that there are shitty men with kids. (duh!)

Also, I'm talking about the men who are active in their child's life. Not the "I'll raise you when I see you"dads, but the single fathers who are sharing custody and responsibility with the mother. Which brings me to another point; Peep that relationship with the mother! If he doesn't have a good handle on the situation with the mother of his child, he may not be someone you want to take too seriously.

Many co-parents have great relationships with each other. I know the big blowouts between the bitter parents are what we often witness. That's because those disputes are what makes the big bucks for the media and gets the most likes on social media.

Being single is great, but having a relationship is great too! Some of you ladies out here genuinely want a relationship and aren't all about the She-Ra-Sis-Boom-Bah single life lovers' chants. And ladies, that is okay. It's okay also to sit back and reflect on what you can do to make yourself a more attractive partner. Sometimes there are things we need to work on to be better mates, daters, or women period. We aren't all born already knowing how to be a good partner in a relationship. Sometimes you have to invest time into yourself to see what is stopping you from being great.

What To Do When I Feel Lonely

I later moved into the loneliness phased. I missed dinner dates and cuddling. I missed being held at night and the great conversation that came along with it. Plus sex, I definitely missed the sex. That's when I thought the next natural step was to start dating. I joined E-Harmony and even went for a paid membership. I had one guy who clicked on my profile. We had talked on the phone a time or two before we went out, but I was still in the healing stage, I wasn't ready for a relationship at all. I wasn't impressed with the conversation, and upon meeting him, I wasn't impressed with him. It wasn't his fault; I just wasn't ready to let go and move on emotionally.

Lessons from the Mindy Project: Are You Really in Love with Him or the Idea of Marriage?

ome of you know some “good” guys right now. These are good guys who you just don’t have a connection with.  These are decent guys who will love you to death but you just aren’t that into them. Yet, because you think it’s better to have a good man that loves you more than you love him. With this thought process, you aren’t loving him the way that you would love him if he was your best friend or you had a stronger connection.  This to me is what settling is.  You aren’t excited about this man and though he will make a great partner, you are just basically using him for the marriage. You are using him so you won’t miss your chance for babies or your chance to be a wife.    My dear, no one wants to be used.

From Corporate Employment to Self-Employment

Although short sighted, I wasn’t completely wrong.  At that time, self-employment was not for me. I do cringe when I think about where I could be had I focused on owning my business at that time, but I needed to learn more lessons.  I needed to create that fire and desire that is necessary for entrepreneurship.  I had to go down my path so that I would appreciate where I would eventually want to go.
