Forming a relationship when you’re a single mother or father can be a very hard and frustrating time, but why don’t you use the Internet to do most of the work for you?
The World Wide Web has thousands of other singles looking to form relationships, many which are single parents as yourself, so what’s stopping you from meeting these single parents?
I’m sure the last thing you want for your children is for them to grow up without a mother or father, it makes the most simple tasks like going out for the day a real headache as you have to plan everything down to the last detail by yourself. This can be a really tough time for both them and yourself and can put a real strain on your mother/father-child relationship.
From a childs point of view (no matter how old ther are), going through a divorce can affect them more than you would realise. They can feel unloved and in most cases will not be able to understand why you split up, and feel that it was because of them and blame themselves. A lot of kids who’s parents have split up can ‘run off the rails’ and start misbehaving and getting themselves into some real trouble, this is because they have no father/mother figure to role model after.
Its hard enough meeting new people to form relationships as it is, let alone finding other single parents! Going out on dates with single parents can be a lot more enjoyable as both parents have a huge amount in common, and your children can also come with you on some dates (e.g. you all go out for the day to a theme park). This makes it more enjoyable for parents and children as theirs a bond between all of you and you feel more like a family.
Meeting singles through the Internet is a great way of forming relationships with other singles, and at the same time eases the struggle of being a single mother/father while bringing you and your child closer.
