Maternal Me Vs. Sexual Sue: Dating As A Single Mom

In the second half of my fourth decade, I became a single mom. For a year it was more than enough and I threw myself into a world of sippy cups and story-times. But one spring day, as the cherry trees blossomed, a longing bloomed in me—I wanted something else, someone else. So I dusted off the Goldfish crumbs and decided to date. But how long could I—a seven-day-a-week, twenty-four-hour-a-day mother—keep the man I was dating out of my "real" life, the one that involved being responsible for a three-foot-high person?

Dating A Single Dad: What It's Really Like

For months I watched women swoon over "The Bachelor," Jason Mesnick, a divorced single father, and I just couldn’t understand why. As a single twentysomething, I am the center of my world, and I like it that way. While I certainly want kids, I don’t want them right now. And I’ve always imagined that when the time comes, my partner and I will experience all of the firsts of parenthood together.

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.

In our not-so-distant past, unmarried or divorced parents risked facing judgment from the state, society and religious institutions for their status.
