Do single parents usually end up staying single most of their life? Flings here and there, some get remarried but end in separation, and another groups just find it hard to date - that’s from my perspective. Is it usually the father who is the hardest to date or the mother who has the most challenge?

I would say it depends on the custody arrangement who has it harder, but the bigger challenge is that most people who do not have kids will not want to get involved with someone who does. Even someone who wants to have kids may not want to be involved as a step parent, especially depending on the custody and biological parent situation.

I’ve seen a few women get with men who have a kid.

In my experience with some of my social group, the bigger problem is that all the single moms I know don’t want to date single dads and that’s putting a huge limiter on their ability to find men.

I struggled with letting anyone around my child for a long time then got busy being a single mom who provided the “best” for her child… I never remarried, had relationships that weren’t conducive to long term (in purpose subconsciously) and now that she’s gone I’m kinda lost 😞

I think it depends on the personality and expectations of the single parent than the custody arrangement. I’ve had divorced friends who got remarried within 2-3 years; I’ve also known people who have not and should not ever remarry (e.g. an old friend’s ex-wife who cheated on him, threw things at him when he tried to divorce her, and then tried to get 50% ownership of the house he bought with his own money before they married.)

Hi, I am a single-parent with a 9 year old daughter. Is anyone else dealing with same gender sleepovers with sexual exploration occurring? Exploring as in my daughter says outright “I am going to kiss you,” to her bestie before bed. Then after 15 minutes of giggling in bed I go to tell them to be quiet and see my daughter’s bestie is showing her buttcheeks to my daughter. To top it off they start trying to tell me they are laughing because they are reading “belly laugh books for kids”. Help.

I always feel really stressed out when I need to tell a parent that their child cheated. Most of the time they say their kid wouldn’t do that and then they are mad at me. Please give me a better way to handle this. Thanks!
