I thought I would write a little bit of my view upon dating an “Available Mum”.
I sit with these terminology a lot better, as “single mum” really adds the aspect of “destined to be alone” right? I just wanted to let you know, I don’t actually believe that is the case.
I broke up with my baby’s dad 11 months ago and I can tell you it was amicable. We broke up because as much as we tried, we just were not happy together. We had a lot of respect for each other (we still do) but we lost the feeling and throw a baby into the mix, and there were too many small arguments and all of a sudden we were “too tired”.
I remember making a decision believing there had to be more to life than this and not knowing the outcome or what would come next, I chose happiness and growth, took a chance and we separated. Another chapter had begun.
I gave it some time but decided I really did want to date (I hadn’t really experienced this before) and you know what, there is only so much Peppa Pig and Uber Eats you can do on alternate Weekends.
I have been experimenting with app dating, like Bumble. I know, I know, I said it may not of been my thing but honestly, in this day what don’t we do from an app?
So did I put on my dating profile “single mum”? No, I chose not to because that is not my identity in the slightest.
