Dating and Single Moms
SHOW NOTES: EPISODE 005
In this episode, I talk about how it's completely unrealistic for someone to believe that once the mother separates from his or her children's father, that she abstain from sex until her next marriage. She can date, but sex is something that is between man and wife?
You are not promiscuous
We go through a lot already. Some of us are left raising our kids on our own, and the others are left co-parenting with their ex. It's understandable for us to feel lonely and want to seek companionship. Why should we only be "allowed" to stay home with our children?
It's completely unrealistic for someone to believe that once the mother separates from his or her children's father, that she abstain from sex until her next marriage. She can date, but sex is something that is between man and wife? While that is okay for some women, because that is THEIR choice, many other women will have sex with the man they are currently dating. In today's world, many millennial's and non-millennial's choose to engage in non-marital sex. For some, it's a choice of preference, others between what is right and wrong.
Dating as a single mom
Being a dating single mom with a sex life does not make you promiscuous. I really don't understand how people can think this way. As long as you are being safe, and protecting yourself, having sex is perfectly fine. You don't have to become a spinster and wait around for your empty nest just because you have children now.
Society seems very uncomfortable acknowledging the fact that single moms have sex too. That once we become moms, well single moms, we place our vagina under lock and key until our next courtship. Well, little do they know, that sometimes the road to Mr. Right is far and few in between. We are still human. We want and still crave intimacy.
Our kids safety
For the safety of our kids, we do need to ask ourselves this question. That is if you let Mr. Right Now over while the kids are home and they just happen to see him. Come on let's face it, not every guy you date is Mr. Long Term.
