Irish dating sites single parents
I’m not sure what a man is his late 30s was expecting, but I sincerely doubt he’s found it yet.Then there was the guy who wouldn’t accept that I’m only free every other weekend and wanted to come round to my house once my son was asleep.Their comments made me feel that my desire for dating and sex meant I wasn’t measuring up as a mum in some way.But I seriously doubt any single dads ever receive the same type of criticism.
That’s another part of hook-ups I’ve found difficult – someone who isn’t the father of my child (and therefore has no obligation to be kind) seeing my body.
In fact, a single-mum friend was seeing a guy who used her ‘lack of spontaneity’ as an excuse for sleeping with someone else.
Now when I spot the word ‘spontaneous’ in a man’s dating profile, I swipe left.
I learned to keep quiet about my dating adventures and largely ignored the so-called ‘advice’, but I soon realised that meeting new men isn’t quite the wall-to-wall fun I’d imagined.
What became immediately clear is that lots of people my age are like Tom – old before their time and acting like we’ve been married for 30 years.And while I obviously ditched the dating sites while I was seeing Jack, I’m now on the verge of reactivating my profiles.
