I am a single mom of a soon to be 2 year old. When I first had my son I thought for sure I would never date again. A few weeks ago I met this guy and I really really like him. I mean as of right now it isn't anything super serious but it's the only kind of dating I've done in the past 3 years. So on top of being out of the dating scene I am also stressing about how to deal with being a single mom that dates...or whatever. I don't really know what to say...I just don't know how to balance the two? When is the right time to introduce him to my son? I don't want to let him meet my son until I know for sure he'll be around. My mom was a single mother and I remember she always had a lot of trashy boyfriends and I never want my son to think that way.
Just any comments, concerns, advice....anything at all would be helpful. Oh and the guy knows I have a son but I try not to talk about him too much so we can get to know each other first to see if we'd even be a good fit together.
