Hello! I used to be an active member of this group. I haven't been on here in quite a while though. I am still a single mother. My son is now 12 years old. A lot has changed in our lives. We have become more stable and found our nitch in how we get from day to day. That is until about 2 months ago when I went on a first date in over 5 years. Now I'm trying to figure out how to be a single mother and date and still have this life that we've come to know. Does anyone have advice on how to balance all of this? At times I want to just give up on the dating idea and go back to just being a single mother. Its been 8 years since my divorce. How do I keep things well for my son...let him know that I'm here for him and always will be and yet that I get lonely at times too and want to date? Any advice would be great! Thank you :)
