Pros and cons of dating single mothers
Single mothers are bona fide idiots and here is why you should never even consider dating one: First, this is a woman who clearly doesn’t give a shit about her child’s well-being and future prospects. Lumping her in with single mothers is an insult to his memory, to her and to her children. Divorced mothers are also NOT single mothers, although a huge flashing PROCEED WITH CAUTION sign is definitely in order. A single mother is a woman who had a child outside of any established relationship, or a relationship so fragile the thickest retard in the world ought to have been able to see bringing a child on board was a FUCKING TERRIBLE IDEA.Because this isn’t something to take lightly; there’s more than just you and he involved. If you value your sleep and aren’t a morning person, then hearing the TV on full blast or a toy train whistle or a crate of Lego hitting the floor at 6 a.m. They’re also playful and not worried about looking silly, be it cheesy jokes or knowing all the words to Taylor Swift‘s songs. With kids around (on his kid days), there won’t be any loud, crazy sex on the kitchen counter, or last-minute decisions to go away for a romantic weekend.If he shares custody with his ex, he likely has every other weekend free.

People have their reasons for not wanting to get into certain situations and they're entitled to their preferences. The relationship didn't work out, but at least I learned some things.
Being with somebody is supposed to make you happier, not to grow a PC-halo around your head. I learned that what I thought was a dealbreaker really wasn't.

I swore I would never, EVER date a single mother because of all the issues raised here.
