Single moms...when did you start dating again? None ya ;) 2 kids; Pennsylvania 10809 posts

I've technically been separated from my ex for a month now, but that was only because the funds weren't there for me to move back home. We continued living together a couple months after he decided to call it quits. I just don't have any feelings towards him and haven't for quite some time after everything he's done to me. How do you know when you're "ready" to date? I'm afraid it's going to kill my confidence if I get shot down lol. I mean a single mom that works at a grocery store with two toddler boys and in school....is there really any guy looking for this chaos? I'm just so damn lonely! When did you know you were ready?

It may sound bad to you but I just did the FWB thing for about a year. Then I started dating.

Lol yeah my friend keeps telling me I just need a f**k buddy but I just can't see myself doing that. Not to mention I live in a one bedroom apartment with my 2 boys...I sleep on a couch...not much room for any extracurricular activities in this place lol.

I've tried, a few months after me and BD broke up, but me and the "new guy" no longer talk, and nothing serious ever happened. He told me one of his daughters passed away (which I believe is true, considering, I don't know ANYONE who would make something like that up :?) and we just quit talking, and I lost his phone number, which I so desperately wish I still had. He was such a nice guy, I actually met him off of PlentyOfFish.com. lol

Oh dang!!! I'll never make it that long! If you don't mind me asking why did you wait so long? I'm not that patient. I know I probably should wait at least a year to get school done and start a career.
