Dating a single mother advice leo woman dating scorpio woman
But it totally does mean that she's juggling at least one additional person's needs, and that person is a kid, and kids are needy as hell. Be clear, be direct, be understanding that she might not be willing or able to give you everything you need, but also don't accept less than you truly need to be able to thrive within the relationship.
Dating a single mom doesn't mean you don't get to have needs — and swallowing them or carrying on without having them met will do nothing but result in a lot of resentment and toxicity for everyone involved.
The biggest difference between single moms and any other woman you might date is that the presence of a kid in her life means having strong boundaries is a non-negotiable.
Moreover, very few single moms view their families as "incomplete" in the absence of a second parent — we aren't desperately looking to fill some gap because we simply don't feel that our single-parent families are "missing" anything.
If anything, single moms tend to get their lives down to carefully created systems that really work for them, and they've been singlehandedly steering parenting duties for a while.
Any woman who gets upset that you A) walk into the first date with a few assumptions about her life, or B) that those assumptions are wrong, is kinda of a d*ck and maybe you don't want to date her anyway.
But it is a good idea to ask questions more than you project assumptions.
