Hi! I'm a single mother of an almost 12 yr old. Bio dad has barley been in the picture her entire life. I've put her first throughout her life on most occasions pertaining to my social life, I would maybe go out every other weekend or once per month, if even that. Now she is beginning to be more social herself, and I am wanting the same thing for me. I am also wanting to date. My daughter gets angry about me wanting to have a social life for myself and does not want me to date. I was in a 5 year relationship/engagement that did not work out. My daughter and I also see a family counselor as of about 5 months ago. Right now I am wondering if it is ok for me to occasionally go out to Saturday nights in a row? Last Saturday night I went out with my sister and friends, but my daughter was with her friend all night. This Saturday, I was wanting to go out on a date, and my daughter spend the night at her grandparents (who I am very close to and they are very close to all of their grandchildren). Thank you all!
