Single mom starting to date again

Kathsanjongco - posted on 06/15/2016 ( 2 moms have responded )




I have been single since I gave birth four years ago. My baby daddy and I have been together for 5 years and he was physically abusive that's why I decided to leave him and raise my baby alone. And I never had any man close to me after him Lol. I get lonely and jealous at times specially when I see cute couples together. Whenever I start to make an effort to enter the dating world it gives me anxiety. I start thinking if he could accept my kid or will he be good to my kid and that is what stopping me from interacting with men. Help me.

It's normal to get anxious about interacting with potential dating partners. Everyone gets concerned about making a good first impression. You also have a daughter and you're naturally protective about who you allow to be a part of her life.

The most important step is to establish a "friendship". Romance can only be built on friendship. Keep this social distance whilst enjoying each others company. Set boundaries regarding intimacy. Don't become to flirty or suggestive or romantic. Wait and watch. Dating is about two people going out together to learn about each other. The more information you have on the person, the more informed your decision will be as to whether you want to take it to the next step.

Pray for direction, and then wait on God to give you peace and the plan you should implement to move forward.
