Single parent dating perth who is stan walker dating
But it’s taken me a while and a lot of bad dates to get here. When I first returned to dating, I didn’t mention my son on my online dating profiles, or when I met men in real life.
Because of the stigma surrounding single parents and myths I was believing at the time, my subconscious told me I would have more luck keeping my profile baby-free. On my first date after being pregnant, dumped and giving birth – when my self-esteem had hit rock bottom – I sat opposite a man who visibly quivered when I revealed I was a mum and compared my child to his ongoing battle with Crohn’s disease.
When you’re a parent, things can feel even tougher.
When I first started dating again after my son (who is now three) was born, my confidence and self-belief couldn’t have been lower.
Just because you fancy a date doesn’t mean you are looking for someone to fill a void.
Also, for anyone dating a single parent, we aren’t necessarily looking for an immediate co-parent, we are looking for a date – those are two very different things.
For this reason, I wouldn’t introduce the person I am dating to my son as my ‘boyfriend’.
The problem is theirs, don’t waste time feeling like it’s yours.
