That makes you a good example and we can’t have enough of those these days. The only word I would put in is that it seems like advertising yourself as a single mother is much more demanding as a statement than merely asserting your name and from there on talking or sharing accordingly. And I’d also like to invite you to spend one hour locked up in a room with my son’s father, that may change your mind. I realised I had a choice – I either let the kids walk the same path as their dad – he didn’t think he has a problem with his violence – towards me or the kids, or I could RESCUE my kids from a life of destruction and HURT. I have been on my own for 9 months now, and to be honest there has not been that much difference apart from feeling more in control of my life and doing a lot less laundry!!

I am very proud of it and would love to hear what you think. And despite its funciton in your life, regardless of how you act aside the site… Also, I did not see any hate comments up, but instead some compliments, and of course just like women, men love that! Now it’s taking on a life of it’s own and I’m realizing that there’s a lot to write about … This is why I gave all that advice, which obviously could have easily been percieved as being way to ‘telling’.

It’s very nice to see a women that “survived” a less than perfect relationship and is willing to share the details of her life as she moves on. but what I am saying is that this is a personal aspect of your life that unfairly stresses responsibility when people really would just like to know your name. I have no regrets and for the first time I’m completely comfortable in my own skin! Thank you for being a strong voice for all of us single parents out there. Reply I have to say in the middle of a bad economy…tons of layoffs…being a single parent which is never easy.even tougher now.

You serve as an inspiration for some and an enigma for others. I think this may turn more men off then it attracts. I am up late because I am trying to find additional income outlets.one can do but soo much online activities…and then I start looking up single mom outlets…and I stumbled on your site and have been wrapped in it for atleast 40 minutes…and most things give me instant ADD so this is a record. Reply Wow – 1st to somewhere above comment from ‘Ben Dover’ – well it is obvious what a narrow minded, judgmental person it takes to write such crap.Check out singles who share the same hobbies as you do like yoga, dancing, sports, crafts, read or even watch TV.

Obviously, we are going to find out if you have children, and I am not at all saying… In just 40 minutes reading your site made me feel I wasnt soo alone, I mean there are tons of “single parent” things online…but none nearly as entertaining and relate-able as yours! I’ll tell you the same thing I tell every man (always men by the way) who leaves comments like this on my site: I agree with you – children need fathers but when the father is absent by his own fruition that makes it quite difficult for us, now doesn’t it? I’m 26 and dating a 32 yr old mother of a 6 yr old. We are on are 4th date this week and this information has helped a lot. I should know I was married to one – one who beat and strangled me in front of our kids.I’m sure that others will draw the positives from your life and not concentrate on the negatives of their life. Thank you for sharing your stories and giving a single mom something to smile about! Rather than stay in a marriage with a non-father, a man unable to actually be a father, it is – in my opinion- better for children to be raised solo by a loving mother. He shares the same views as the insightful ‘Ben’, and I know first hand how a child needs their father – but not when it ruins the child’s life by a parent’s own lack of sense, father or mother – in my case it was my husband. Thank you for your openness on this – I have tried to explain this concept to a friend (who is married to a helping husband) and I’m not quite sure she understood what I was saying.That’s part of the reason why, I suppose, that we found each other. Working for other people made it hard to leave work when Benjamin was sick or to even leave right at to pick him up from school.

Take care, Trey Ellis Reply Hi, Thanks for featuring us on your blog. this is just what I wanted to say–as my one word becomes its usual page–that it seems like you are very focused on being single. For example, I do not see any guy statements on this page, but instead all single-mom comments. just…not what we want at times–despite the upsides of it, as well–but by focusing so much on it, by speaking and blogging and picturing single single single… single single single…well, not that there is an ultimate right way to date for all people everywhere, but I think that one of the best ways to really get someone you like is being around that person habitually. not just the fact that I’m a single mother but the fact that I’m a single woman. I love being single and will likely stay single because I love it so much. You seem to give off a really positive energy, as personalities go…!
