I know this is an old thread but I just had to respond to Jon's reply that the presence of a boyfriend in a single mom's life is detrimental to her child. And that she shouldnt date til her daughter is 18. I am a single mom of a four year old little girl. I have been dating the same man for 7 months and just recently let him meet my daughter. My personal and dating life is kept separate but I promise you I am much happier in this stable loving relationship than I would be alone. My daughter gets plenty of attention & if she is not with me she is being showered with attention by her grandparents. While I agree dating relationships can take time and attention away from a child, it doesnt have to be this way.View Thread
