3 mistakes to avoid if you’re dating again

by singlemomseeking on September 11, 2010

1. Don’t fib

You don’t have to spill every personal details about yourself — or about your kids — on the first date, but be yourself. Examples: If you’re separated, but not yet legally divorced, say so. If you’re 42 years old, don’t say that you’re 39. You get the gist.

2. Take it slowly

Chemistry really does do magic, especially if it has been a LONG time since… you know. On a first date, if you’re really clicking, maybe you can savor that long hug and/or kiss at the end of the night — and then take a deep breath and go home alone as you savor your amazing night. Imagine what you’ll have to look forward to next time!

3. Keep your kids out of it. For now.

Introducing Mr. Could Be to your kid is not cool. If you’re a solo mom — without a co-parent — this can be tricky. That’s where good friends come in to trade babysitting, or family if they’re nearby.

If you had a miserable date, tell your girlfriends all about it — not your kid. Of course, the time and place will come when you feel ready to introduce your boyfriend to your child. But what’s the rush?

Tell me:

Are you dating again?

If so, how’s it going?

If you’re not ready yet, what’s holding you back?
