Single mum, thirty and dating
The week where I realised It can't just be me! Can it?
I realised this week dating as a single mum in your thirty's is impossible! And don't get me started on COVID, I mean if it's not hard enough to find a man COVID has made it impossible. I mean there's tinder and plenty of fish, (how has my life came to this?) but it's not like I can just pop out to a bar and see who's out and single, there's the going out prep and babysitters to organise. So online dating it is! This week I started talking to a single guy not to far away from me, I thought okay give him a chance and boom, do you fancy a drink on Saturday, I thought great maybe this online dating isn't so bad! We exchanged numbers and started texting, all was going well, I had organised a babysitter to come to mine, planned the outfit, things were looking up! Then he hits out with I think your the one, (I mean I would love to find the "One" but how can someone know after a few texts?) we will need a big house and he had made the decision we were going to have as many children as it takes until we have a boy, bearing in mind I have only spoken to him for 2 days. I mean who am I to say no to putting a stop to someone starting a family, but as a mother to three girls, I feel I am destined for more, is this what my life is going to come to! Running around after a very large girl tribe! And this wasn't even the worst part! He had informed me that he wakes at 5 to go running every morning and when we live together I would be expected to wake at the same time, (do these people really exist?) The alarm bells were ringing and I thought I can't go on this date! The single life was starting to look good! Wish me luck for what next week holds for my dating life! #singlemumthirtyanddating
