Single Parent Dating Attempts Can Turn Into A Juggling Act

Oct 9, 2007
There are many times when a single parent plans to go out on a date and a juggling act begins that will eventually make the date impossible to go on at times. Some single parents can not find someone to baby-sit with an infant when an invitation to go out is received on the spur of the moment. The juggling act might be solved if the date agreed to allow the baby to go with them.

A single parent who has planned a date for weeks will be certainly disgruntled to find out that the person that was hired to sit with a child earlier in the week is suddenly unable to make it over to the house in time to do any good. Some babysitters are really lax in their duties and might cause a single parent to go in to a tailspin when they tell them they will not be able to baby-sit at all.

The single parent might have to juggle the cellular telephone in one hand while comforting a small child in the other while they call various neighbors on the street to see if anyone would care to watch the little one while she went on a date with a very nice gentleman. The neighbors might help out in a pinch at times but after it happens several times in one month, they are liable to hang the phone up with no reply.

When this occurs a single parent still has a few options to consider if she really wants to go out on that date. If they have been dating different men for a while, the single parent has probably constructed a list of suitable people who have agreed to baby-sit on an as needed basis. These people might know the children very well because the grandparents are probably the people that the single parent has at the top of the list.

With a quick call and a little orchestration, the juggling act will start again when the grandparents give the go ahead. Then the single parent has to be on her toes and have her energy levels high because she not only has to prepare overnight bags that they filled very hastily with formula, finger foods or a bottle or two but she also has to get dressed and load the children into the car seats in the car and get back home before the date knocks on the front door.

Some single parents have to stop the juggling act at times because their nerves are flat raw. They might suggest to the date that they have dinner at home and watch a rented movie on the television screen in the cozy living room. The single parent might get a chance to relax and get to know the person that they are dating, and he might never be privy to the juggling act she went through to make the date go off on schedule.
