Men view a single mom to be a burden. They see it difficult to love a woman with another man’s child. But these are some reasons why loving a single mother could be the best choice.
If you’ve won the love of a single mom, you’ve hit the relationship jackpot. Few love as selflessly and fiercely as a woman who’s raised her kid/s on her own (or mostly on her own).
Need more convincing? Huffington post asked a handful of divorced moms to give their best elevator pitch for dating single mamas.
Here are some of the reasons to date a single mom below.
She is more mature
Getting a child forces a woman to grow. She tends to be more mature than her peers who have no children.
She is Not Petty
Any single mom you date likely has a lot on her plate — and much of it comes her way unexpectedly. (The kids get the flu right before a work trip? Par for the course.) What that means for you is that she’ll understand if you’re running late for a dinner date because of a deadline at work. she’s probably dealt with far worse. Some things are just out of your control. Failed dinner plans are nothing to single moms.”
She’s well rounded
If you want a woman who gets things done, look no further than a single mom, they do everything, and I mean everything, they bring home the bacon, fry it up in the pan, clean the pan…hell, they bought the pan. They parent with enthusiasm, they work hard at whatever our jobs are, they are tender caretakers and tough decision makers.”
While other people you date might get clingy and annoyed by your few-and-far-between texts, a single mom ain’t got time for that. She’s got a world of her own and kiddos to worry about. If you say you need some space or time to yourself, she’ll respect it.
She loves like no other.
Any single parent will tell you: Raising a kid on your own is the ultimate primer on how to love unconditionally. If you are all your kid has in the world, you learn to love that much harder. That kind of selfless, unconditional love has also made her a better partner.
Single mom /s are sexy
She may lean heavily on the no-nonsense mom uniform when she’s with the kids — jeans, t-shirts, a ponytail, yoga pants, or any combination thereof — but if you ask her out on a date, she’ll likely relish the chance to get all dolled up.
She’s playing for keeps.
Single moms are particular about who they let into their life for good reason. They’ve got kids to worry about so they’re not just going to let any Tom, Dick or Harry from Tinder walk through the door. If she’s chosen you, you must be pretty special, says Ball.
She knows what kind of man she wants
Because she already has a running family awaiting a father and husband; she knows the qualities she wants in a man and is more specific. If she invests time, love and effort in you it’s not for games or to pass time. She has no time for games or beating around the bush.
Single mom appreciates the value of a real man
Most likely she’ll be a single mother because things didn’t work out between her and baby daddy or ex. Her being a single parent has made her better appreciate the need for a man in her life; she understands best her need for a man to be husband in building a home with and a father to her child/ children. So when she chooses you, be sure she knows your value in her life. She’ll treat you good because you are giving back to her what she’s been missing.
She knows what she wants.
A single mom with a divorce behind her has probably done some soul searching to figure out went wrong in her marriage— including the part she played in its breakdown. She’s been burned before but she’s come out with a stronger sense of what she really needs in a relationship and partner.
