My ex husband and I separated in December last year a couple weeks after I fell pregnant with our second child. He said he didn't want the life we were living & left. It's been messy and hurtful regardless of how completely toxic our relationship was. I've just found out he's been dating a woman for 2 months & "they're in it for the long run. He's introduced our eldest to her (our second not born yet but he's claiming it isn't his and he's doing a DNA test can't wait to see the look on his face when he realises that just because he cheated doesn't mean I did)
I got over him pretty quickly to begin with because I knew I spent years unhappy so I'm not hurt about him moving on, but it got me thinking about dating as a single mum. I have 100% care of my daughter and it's going to remain that way for the foreseeable future as her dad works away and only has her 1 day on his rostered week off, but he won't have the little baby at all. I obviously want to focus on my kids and myself for a while before I look into dating but is it even possible to meet someone who would date a mother with two kids so young? I feel like I'm never going to find someone, that everyone would be put off my lifestyle & the fact that I won't be able to just be spontaneous and go out for drinks or whatever & I know I'll be so cautious when it comes to my kids like I know I'll have to be super serious about someone before I want to introduce them to my kids... From what I've seen and heard though, men just don't want to put in the effort if it's too hard. Is it true? have any of you met a good man even as a single mother?
