I go out with single dads and childless men alike, and some of the latter admit (while others appear) to be uncertain about the logistics of dating single moms.
Don’t assume she’s not free when her kids are home. If you’re interested and want to see her, ask her out. They have a dad, regardless of whether he is in the picture, in the can, or in and out of the psych hospital. Of course you want to know when she is free, if she has the kids all the time and whether the dad is involved.
The gal that you're interested in dating is a single mom. You're drawn to her because she is very mature and independent (and beautiful, no doubt)—you like that.
Yes, moms are really efficient and they’re used to doing a lot of cooking and cleaning.
But if a single mom invites you over for dinner — whether a romantic evening for two, or with her kids — she had to clean up a whole lot of Legos and finger paint and sting cheese wrappers, and wrangles in an extra trip to the market and wine store to make it happen.
