Will You Date Women With Children?

Oct 21, 2007
Recent survey showed that a good number of men favor to date single mothers. Out of five thousand men, forty eight percent find single mothers more motivated and mature in nurturing a relationship.

Twenty-five percent want or choose to date single mothers for the reason that single mothers are faced with a demanding and hectic schedule which is why they recognize the value of sacrifice single moms had to go through, making them a stronger person and the type to value a relationship.

Seventeen percent said that when they dated a single mom, it was an opportunity seeing the woman care for her children and that is such a wonderful sight.

Here are reasons why men love dating single moms:

1. Men look up to their mothers; therefore they see the single mom as a person who is more focused and responsible in life. She already knows what are her priorities and definitely will not let go of her children's happiness for a man. Therefore, when she chooses to date a man, the man must be real special.

2. Single moms are strong, having had gone through raising her children alone.

3. They are independent, have a direction in life and very confident.

4. They value the quality of time, and this sets them apart. When they date a man or in a relationship, they often make the most out of that moment, and value their time spent together.

5. Single mothers give importance and cherish lasting relationships. They do not just fill time when dating, as they need to decide on doing something for them at the same time accomplishing the task of being a father and a mother to her kids. To the man searching for a lasting and true relationship, the single mom is perfect.

6. They approach dating with sincerity and not just a segment of a sequence of worthless dates or that which sprouts from one's fear of loneliness.

7. Single moms relish their time when alone on a date and appreciate a simple evening, giving more importance of your time spent together, and not on how grand it is. This makes them fun to date.

Here are guidelines in dating single moms:

1. When she wants you to give her time before you meet her kids, be patient and realize that this is not because she does not like you, instead, she wants to become acquainted with you, at the same time that you will have a chance to become acquainted with her first "as a woman", before you know her as a mom.

She still wants to know for sure how your relationship develops before introducing the kids to you.

2. Understand that she is a mom, her first priority being her children, so as much as she wants to, she can not make spur-of-the-moment plans with you. However romantic unplanned dinner dates may seem, understand that they are simply unworkable for single moms.

3. Know your part and never try to discipline her kids. Leave the disciplining to the mom and never be a father to her kids. They already have one, and will only feel bitter towards you if and when you take their father's place.

Just be their friend whom they can trust and count on. This way, they will accept you and appreciate you more.

4. After a while of dating together and you know that you both are on your way to a lasting relationship, including the kids in your plans can be a great idea, wherein her children and you can spend time and get to know each other better. Plan your outings that kids will love and enjoy.

Dating women with children would entail so much than dating single women. However, should you really like a single mom and is willing to give the relationship a shot, then go for it. The single mom has many good qualities worth knowing and she has many good values worth your time. Let her kids be not of hindrance to you. As long as there is understanding, patience, dedication and love, you will both have a lasting relationship that you both will enjoy in the coming years.
