I was a single mom as well for 4 years before I found my Mr. Right. I divorced my husband because of his infidelity as well. My advice to you is to find happiness with yourself and your child first before seeking love. When you have been cheated on like you have been it sounds like it is natural to feel like every guy is a liar and that every guy is playing games, and unfortunately, most guys are liars and playing games, and that's the unfortunate truth. Now that you are a mother you have to be guarded not only for your sake but your child as well. Just relax and focus on being a single mom and be happy with yourself and don't worry about finding Mr. Right. When he comes along, you'll know! And believe me, I know exactly how you feel! It is very lonely at times and I often wondered as well if I would be single forever! So just hang in there, and don't give up, and just focus on what's the most important right now, your child and YOU!! :)

Don't worry about finding the right person. Instead, focus on being the right person. Be the person that you want to be, enjoy your life, and you'll attract a good person who fits your lifestyle. In the grand scheme of things a year and a half isn't really a long time and it seems like you haven't really healed from your last relationship. Allow yourself to do that so you can enter into your next relationship without the pain your ex caused you. It'll be good for you. I've been single for the last 4 years, and I am just now considering starting up a new relationship.
