After I went back to campus each time Mom said, ‘I never get to see you!
Ask them questions about how they handle certain situations, and share what you would do as well.When you’re dating as a single parent in the US, there are more than two people involved.Don’t expect to become an “insta-family”, or even meet your date’s children for quite some time, this isn’t an episode of the Brady Bunch.Among the men I am meeting both via online or when out at a bar, I've got single dads, young guys, creepy men, and lifelong bachelors inching their way into my section of the dating pool.The creepy men are an absolute no, and the lifelong bachelors are just as frustrating as they were when I was single, before my divorce. By lazy, I mean I don't put in the real effort required to make online dating work. I have a lot of other things on my plate and to be completely honest, I love how my life is going as of now. The reality is if you want to succeed with online dating, you've got to go out with a plethora of frogs to meet any potential partner, and right now, I have taken a slight back seat to swiping left and right and mindlessly texting guys who I will probably never meet.
I love my friends, kid, work, and social life — OK, so some weekend nights, I'm stumped on whom to go out with if I am kid-free — so why complicate it with a man? But of course, the idea of romance and love still appeals to me. When I get a match whom I am not crazy over, I decide to not meet him and, instead, go see friends.
The truth is that random person I passed up may have been a great match for me, but if I'm not wowed, I would rather have wine and conversation with guaranteed good company than potential awful company.
At this point, I'd rather meet someone in real life anyway: what an oxymoron considering I'm a single mom.

Patrick Morris, 43, public relations director; Saratoga, NY. Q: What’s the most important thing for a woman to know when dating a single dad?
Darryl Wooten: Any woman who dates me must know that my kids are everything to me, so if a woman isn’t into my children, it’s never going to work out.
