The Dos and Don’ts to Dating a Single Mom

Dating a Single Mom is different. A single mom is stronger than your average mom, mainly because she has to be, or else… it’s gonna be a disaster! Her heart has been broken before, so she is wary of all the tricks that men pull. Yep, it’ll be like walking into a loaded minefield. But, fortune favors the brave, and should you ask a single mom out, heed these dos and don’ts.

DON’T think that a single mom is an easy score.

She may not be a virgin anymore (because, duh) or haven’t had sex in a while, but respect is sexy — to every woman, but to the single mom most of all.

DO be patient.

Single moms can be socially awkward for hanging out with a baby almost 24/7. Give her time to warm up to being able to talk to an actual adult.

DO earn her trust.

Her heart has been broken before, remember? And she’s not just watching out for herself, she has her kid too.

DON’T let the kid freak you out.

Single moms won’t usually introduce you to the kid until she knows that this relationship is serious.

DON’T be the kid’s dad either.

The kid already has a dad. He’s just not there.

DO be present.

While you’re not required to be a kid’s dad, be there for the kid. Include the kid in your plans sometimes. Loving the kid FOR REAL earns you big points with the mom.

DO be honest.

If you’re uncomfortable with her having her child all the time, don’t fake having a good time. Talk to the mom. Lying is how hearts get broken.

DO be practical when it comes to gifts.

Single moms are practical. They don’t mind getting plastic containers or even loaves of bread as gifts, but that being said, they like being pampered too.
