I am having the same problem! Not just in dating but in developing a social life of any kind. I love my daughter dearly but miss adult unteraction outside of work. No car and no neighbors i would trust with my daughter, feeling a little lost.

Hi - I have found dating really difficult and for almost 2 years it was very frustrating. I have tried eHarmony and match.com and for the most part I met nice men (a few) but no one who really wanted to commit, they were really looking for short term and did not want to step parent my children. Compounded by the fact that I have a son who is affected by autism. Last May I posted a profile on Yahoo Personals and met my now boyfriend. He is very caring and has made a huge effort to learn about autism and my son. I know I was very lucky to meet him. We are now running a small business together, things just fell into place. If you do try the online thing, go slowly and only meet in crowded public places. I wish you the best of luck. There are men out there, be picky!



I have tried eHarmony and match.com but I haven't tried Yahoo.I'm also picky about who I meet cuz you never know what is out there.I don't go out much(clubs) cuz to me its the same old thing.My daughter asked me the other day when is she going to have a daddy and I didn't know what to tell her.

Yes, I'm a single mom in my mid-forties and the pickings are slim! Either I meet young guys that I won't date, because their my daughter's age or I meet older guys that don't have anything going for themselves, but pimp talk. I've raised my kid (single mom) and now its time for me to have love in my live. HELP!
