Single moms - Staring over

A ferrytale love, that everyone looked up to. A love that I once had dreamed for and thought could not really exist. This was my life 12 years ago. Now I am heart broken, and have no idea where to begin. My only joy comes from my child and Faith.

Life after divorce - single moms

A ferrytale love, that everyone looked up to. A love that I once had dreamed for and though could not really exist. This was my life 12 years ago. I had it all, everything I could of ever asked for. A man I loved, admired and respected. Handsome, funny and successful. We had everything in common and wanted the same things in life. Together we conquered problems, worked, traveled and enjoyed each other. We build our dream home and started a family. I had to pinch myself at times and thank God for all he had given me. Sometime around the 7th yr. of this beautiful time, while everything was perfect, he began to pull away. He began to play video games and started acting like a kid. For the next 6 months I felt it was stress or maybe a face he was going through. One night a week before Christmas, as we were getting ready for bed, he turned over to me and casually said he wanted to sell our home and get a divorce. I layed there in shock and denial. I thought it was a joke and never asked why, he said he didn't feel the same and we were too different. 3 yrs. later I am the one raising our boy while he lives a perfect life with a 29 yr. old. Free of care and worries. I often miss the company of my best friend, and can't stay mad at him. I have secluded myself and refuse to date or even concider it. I'm terrified to have someone get too close and hurting my child and myself. I've given up on love and don't know who I am anymore. I just turned 40 and feel like I need a new beginning and discover the real me. It just feels like a rollercoaster of emotions that I don't know where to even begin.

My Son And I Are Dating My Boyfriend

Would Andy think Jake was as perfect as I did? Perfect manners. Perfect behavior. Perfect attitude. Jake had just turned three. He was a sweet kid, affectionate and kind—but perfect manners? Who was I kidding? It wasn't as if "thank you" was exactly a recognized word in his vocabulary.

Single Parents Are Sexy, Too!

For all of its ridiculous moments*, last night's episode of The Bachelor made us realize one thing: the single parent experience is growing increasingly mainstream. Jason, the bachelor and single dad in question, has 10 remaining women on the show; two of them are single mothers, and all of them are gaga for his divorced self. The latest US census showed single parent homes have held steady at around 9 percent of all households for the past fifteen years. Meanwhile, the increase in popularity of online dating and the prevalance of divorce have made dating with children a common occurrence. In our not-so-distant past, unmarried or divorced parents risked facing judgment from the state, society and religious institutions for their status.
