"I never thought I'd be dating as a mom," was how an email started from a dejected woman in her late 20s. At first her boyfriend was supportive during the pregnancy… then he found a new girlfriend. Not only was she confused and heartbroken, but now she had to do everything on her own. Nearly a year later, she was finally ready to date again but didn't know where to start. Dating and vetting is challenging enough when it's just you, but it seems impossible when your life centers around a child. This reader had so many questions for me: When should she tell a man she had a son? How could you explain that the father is barely in her son's life yet takes care of his new girlfriend's kid like it's his own? Would she be judged for not being able to keep her ex happy? And of course, the biggest question was, "when should I let a man meet my son?"
Countless women are in this same boat, and today I will address all the important questions and the proper strategy to date like a Spartan when you're a single mom. It upsets me that women who have GIVEN LIFE don't recognize their power. Do you really think that because you're a mother, you can't have the world, you're tainted, or men will see you as damaged goods? Confidence creates opportunity, and no matter if you have one kid or many, you MUST recognize that you're still a fucking goddess able to attract high-value men!
