As a 31yr old, single mother of an 11yr old daughter, I am constantly dealing with questions as to why I am still single. I also have to deal with everyone assuming that I want to be in a relationship and can't do it on my own, so they are constantly trying to set me up with men. My family also assumes that every guy friend I have must be a boyfriend. I am not with my daughter's father because the relationship turned abusive after I was pregnant. I have had relationships since then which didn't work out for various reasons. I am now happily single and focusing on being a good role model for my daughter......so why do I need to explain this to EVERYONE in my life?
I believe that by teaching my daughter to put herself first I am doing the right thing, but am I also teaching her that no man is ever good enough?
I am open to any and all feedback on this!
