What to do instead: The idea of monogamy should be introduced in a committed relationship, not forced on one.
You should date more than one person, so that you have an opportunity to see who is an ideal match for you. There aren't always hard and fast rules regarding when to start dating.
Dating more than one person allows you to compare and contrast and see who rises to the top.
At the same time, I’m taking on the responsibility, that naturally, two people should share.
I put in everything I’ve got- physically and emotionally- so he never has to feel like he’s missing a parent. Time with you = Time away from my kid which means you better make sure it is worth it.
If love is about putting in the effort to understand one another, then it’s my duty to express who I am and what I feel.
Through this exercise, I put together a few guidelines for dating a single mom. I have my child with me most of the time, and the joy that comes from that is a true blessing.
Effort = Planning in advance, which means I feel like you respect my time. Sharing hobbies and traveling together are important aspects in evolving relationships.
They help us grow together, experience things, and even help determine our compatibility.
Being exclusive too soon."As a dating coach I encourage my clients to cast a wide net and date more than one person until talk of exclusivity arises," Cantarella says.

Be prepared to have a woman who is upfront, passionate, and nurturing.
Whether or not you planned to be a father, there may also be a kid who falls in love with you, too.
I invest everything in my child and, at the end of the day, I’ve run out of gas. I have to get a babysitter and schedule how long I can be out and when I need to return. But do you know how happy I am when I get that alone time with you? To me, it’s like a romantic getaway, a mini-vacation.
