Get Your Date On, Single Mom Style

Let’s Face it…Dating sucks!Whether you’re a single, childless, 25-year-old woman or you’re a 45-year-old single mom with kids–in both situations in many ways you’re truly at the mercy of a potential suitor.

On that very first date, we all get that insecure feeling in the pit of our stomachs– as we question whether we’re worthy enough…

Will I be rejected? What does this man really think about me? Am I interesting? Am I attractive?

In all these situations there’s one common denominator– we usually accept all the responsibility,  and even more so when a first date turns sour…

With all these feeligs swirling about our pretty little heads- it’s a wonder any woman ever musters up the courage to actually go on a date…and if you’re a single mom, well it definitely can make you feel like the odds of really connecting with a potential suitor are going to be that much more difficult. Because now-coupled with the baggage of just being a woman– you’ve got some extra carry on luggage in the form of kids!

Enter Single Mom Seeking’s Rachel Sarah– a single mom who, although she admits that the dating scene can be fraught with little speed bumps- is always up for navigating the challenge.

You can read her Q&A with Single Minded Women here… she might just convince you to shrug off that nagging little voice that keeps you from spreading your single mom wings, taking a long deep breath and soaring!

And if you need more single mom inspiration, read Single Minded Women’s brand new column here– which details Elaine Garretson’s 32-year struggle to recoup her child support payments from her Ex , which she documents in her book Deadbeat Daddy.
