I just have to vent and ask the opinion of other single mums. My son is 19 months old and has not seen his dad since he was a tiny baby. His dad is no longer involved in any way. I am being continually lectured and nagged at for saying inhave made the lifestyle choice of remaining single until my son is grown up. After giving him one deadbeat dad- I refuse to let anyone in his life if there is a risk they will walk away sometime down the line. Plus- I am awful at relationships and my bipolar makes it worse. Yes it's a financial struggle alone and it is hardwork and lonely sometimes but I refuse to put my happiness over my sons. I want him to have a steady childhood with a parent he can trust. I am
not judging any other parents out there who date- this is my choice. But people have started being really mean about it- saying I am denying my son the chance of a father figure and I am being selfish. I am 100% happy alone and would never trust anyone with the responsibility of parenting my son. Am I wrong? Opinions please guys.
