Dating a single mum is hard, she will often have to cancel dates last-minute, be it because her child is ill or her babysitter has let her down or sometimes he simpy may not have the energy to go out.
Her texts may be short and sometimes she will not reply at all.
She will never be able to put you first, her child is her priority, she doesn’t even put herself first.
She will often be tired, or talk non stop about everything and anything because sometimes you are the only adult she has seen or days.
She doesn’t always make an effort with her appearance or have random stains on her clothes.
On a date she will regularly look at her phone to check on her child with the sitter, you will not get her undivided attention.
So why on earth would anyone date a single mum, why do I bother with this woman who cannot put me first?
Well a woman who will go without to provide for someone is a warrior, a woman who will play with her child all day and comfort her crying child has so much love to give.
I want a woman who will multitask, a woman who doesn’t think she is special but really she is, a woman who I can help, a woman I can respect.
Thank you single mummy’s for stepping up when the dads step down, you my dear are stronger and braver than you give yourself credit for.
