After marriage counseling, much soul ringing and yet another really nasty fight I decided it would be better to raise my four month old son alone than in that environment. 🙂 I hope my single friends would read your blog so that they’d see that being a single mom isn’t bad and it isn’t about finding someone but being happy in your own situation. I’m a product of a single mother…and I don’t think single mother’s get half as much credit as they should…so, just wanted to say, that no matter how hard it is right now, one day you’re kids will thank you and will appreciate how hard you work to raise them…I know I did! One of my fears of being a single mom is that my son will grow to hate me because i left his father. When I was dating as a young woman, I did look at men and wonder if they would make good fathers. She said, “Oh Teri, that’s all well and good, but at some point, the kids move away and you have to be sure that you have someone you have a real relationship with.” This was good advice.
So I packed up my things and left my husband, my career and my friends to move in with my mother and become a single mother. Of course I know that when he is with his father he gets free run of everything. I think it’s great that you have this outlet and you get some helpful input, as well. Strangely, though, even though I met and married a man who is a good man and was basically a good father, after eighteen years of marriage, I left him.
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.
Good luck in the coming days and know this…….men are still out there. When men read this, a lot of us are very insecure about the title. this is one of the first things people are conditioned to expect. Reply I feel that (whether we like it or not) society needs structure and order. Your intelligence is about as good as the name you used. 2nd – YAY for this SITE – love sooo much how I stumbled across it , HOORAH! It’s not to say that I don’t miss intimacy because I do, but I was not getting that anyway. but I’m sure GOD has a better plan for my girl and I. Had another baby 2 years ago, lived with the other parent for about a year and now aged 47 – a single mum again.
he he So here is a link to a post to help all those getting out of a relationship. I found your blog a couple of months ago.
Despite the fact that the only thing we have in common is Columbus, I love reading about your experiences. If you're ever looking for things to do in Columbus, check out my blogs: I must say I really like this blog.
My fans call me inspirational and refreshing while my haters call me “a disgrace to my gender” and a bunch of other things too nasty to publish. I am already a sinhle mother to my four yr old son although his dad is involved in his life but now i found out im pregnant with a guy i was seeing a very short time and he probably wint be in this childs life because he is young and immature. And yes, Annette, I’d love to be added to your blogroll…Reply Rachel Sarah at Single Mom Seeking told me about your blog. And I’ll work on those additional videos as soon as I get a free second – which is never. I was surprised because it seemed like, by saying single, you were simultaneously saying that you wanted to be with someone, and or then that you were looking for someone. Like in the newspapers, we have all heard about the “Single adds”, in which people put up their selection of lines to date. It’s a Funism Book all about sex humor and some other amusing stuff. I’ve added you to blogs that I follow and I can’t wait to read more!
I’ll let you decide what you think, but if you’re a total jerk there’s a good chance I’ll delete your comment – because the world has enough negative energy already. I really like it and wanted to tell you about my single-dad blog. Or, if you meet someone that says, “yeah, I have a single friend” — we’re quite conditioned to think that this friend is then looking to date. adore your new look…keep up the wonderful work of being and awesome inspiration! Reply I just stumbled across this blog and it is quite interesting.
