Rules dating a single dad
Jim ended up being kind of boring in person — perfectly polite, a gentleman, but, I just didn’t feel any chemistry. Despite some big differences between us, like our politics for one thing, and his dirty sense of humor, I instantly liked him.He wasn’t my usual “type” at all, which tends to be more artsy and progressive, but he made me laugh so much.Lots of my friends are divorced single parents, but not many have been single from the beginning, like me. I’m also really happy just being a mom, so naturally I’ve been hesitant to start dating again. Once she was born, I felt like I had found my total joy and purpose in life. What business did I have dating while my daughter was still so young? If you consider that I’ve been single since two days before I found out I was pregnant (when her dad and I broke up), however, I’ve been single for well over a year.It makes sense that a single woman in her thirties would be curious about dating after that long.
I swear to God I’m not a complete loser.”I figured I should just get right to the point.And here’s the thing: I was most nervous about how to talk about sex and breastfeeding with a new guy I wanted to sleep with. Another thing is, I can’t be feeling all insecure about leaking milk.He would have to just deal with that if it happened and not say anything.So even though dating while still breastfeeding seemed complicated, I had recently read Aziz Ansari’s new book, after a friend recommended it, and I was inspired to put myself out there.Ansari makes a pretty solid case for using Tinder, especially for those in specific dating circumstances, like people with kids or of specific religions.
