Ivillage dating as a single parent
One day, I was changing diapers and rocking my child to sleep.

My marriage ended before my heart fully caught-up to the finality of it all.
And while I realize many divorced moms and dads are eager to date and invigorated by the prospect of meeting someone knew, I just wasn’t one of them yet.
I felt the need to explain away my divorce and how I ended-up a young, single mom.
Dad showed me how to turn off the circuit breaker, shut off the water and a heap of other home-ownership things I never wanted to know.
I was also financially dependent on myself since my ex and I opted not to pursue spousal or child support .
No one should date when they’re self-conscious of their past.
I should have waited until I’d come to terms with my mistakes, learned from them, and moved forward wisely.
