It’s not easy to love a single mother!
She may be the most wonderful woman in the world, but the truth is that her first priority will always be her kids. For many guys, that can be hard to get around!
But, you’ll find that single mothers are often some of the best girlfriends and ultimately spouses if you treat them right. They know how to give selflessly to others, and if you can get them to fall in love with you, they make a wonderful addition to your life.
If you find yourself falling in love with a single mother, here are some things to remember:
Don’t try to take all of her time and attention. A lot of it will belong to her children, the people that she considers to be the most important ones in her life. If you try to divide her attention, she is very likely to end up resenting you.
It’s tough not to be able to spend as much time as you want with that special woman, but know that the time you do get will be very special–all the more so because there is so little of it. Let her tend to her children and their needs, and when it comes time to take care of herself and you, it will be much better!
Be patient. The truth is that being a single parent is tough, no matter how easy she makes it look. She feels alone in the world, and there is very little you can do to change that today. It will take a LONG time for her to realize that she has you on her team, and she will slowly welcome you into her life more and more as time goes by. Be patient with her!
