Dating is Terrible when You Have Children
Every single reason you’re already thinking. No point in me writing these things; wasting our precious time.
Kids need predicability from their parents. We know this from birth on. Naps, repeat foods, the same park for the same swing. Teens are the same. A carousel of girlfriends and boyfriends is going to disrupt your children. Key: Covert as fuck.
You are forced to have a major conversation with a person too early in a relationship. It’s awful. I don’t want to talk about my kids any more than you do at-this-moment but I live with people I grew in my body and that’s just a fact. The heaviness of this could sink a floater in the Dead Sea. Let’s move on.
Does the person I’m dating want to ‘rescue’ and romanticize me? Do they actually want a real connection or am I just part of this person wanting more drama in their life?
You are drama. You are raising kids alone. The stakes are always high. You have no idea where any day is going to take you when you work full time and are raising children alone. Who wants to waltz in on that and take it on? (See #3)
I just liked this meme 🤷🏻♀️
