Meeting Single Parentsfrom: Maxx Family Life
If being a single parent attacked you like an ambush, then you likely feel highly uninitiated when it comes to being a single parent. You probably think you can just reenter the dating scene as easy as you walk into your closet.
But that isn't how reality dictates dating and being a single parent combine. You might feel more awkward than not when you decide to make a comeback in the dating arena. Contrary to what most people think about dating, dating is actually not as easy as it appears to be.
Dating actually requires a certain kind of emotional and social muscle and these muscles can definitely atrophy without use.
All you need is a little warming up and some preliminary exercises. Exercises like going out, drinking coffee, strolling around the park and striding in the areas where you think you're most likely to meet your match ... and if you do, then consider yourself one of the luckiest people in the world.
Then, afterwards, you'll soon be back to your days of peak dating where you harvested your romantic benefits. Just like all of those ambitious exercise regiments, if you concentrate too much on ambivalence, low-energy and inconsistency, then don't expect you'll attain the kind of results you're hoping for.
Do you really want to have the kind of ending you desired? Then follow the steps presented in this article.
First and foremost, you have to wrap up whatever it was that went on in your past. If you don't, this will in turn be an unmovable obstacle to your path to a new and healthy relationships. If you felt a certain longing feeling for an ex-lover, drop it.
This is most definitely not healthy for you, not just in terms of meeting other people to date, but it's not good for your health as well. You can get either too fat, from eating all that junk food while moping around, or too thin because, according to you, you don't have the will to live anymore, therefore you stop eating.
You also don't need to avenge yourself, making that guy's or that girl's life a living hell. Just forget what has passed and move on.
Next, you must make a decision. You can't just decide to enter a relationship because a friend told you to do so. You're not a dummy. You were born with your own will and intellect, so it's definitely not right when you do something your friend tells you to that you're not exactly comfortable doing.
You make your decisions because it's what you're comfortable with, and it helps mould you into a better person.
Another step is to just get your life organized.
Ask anyone. No one will date you if you can't even tell your left sock apart from your right sock. Dating someone will definitely not help you organize your life, not even a little bit.
It might distract you from certain disasters that are knocking on your door, but it won't be a solution. In fact, it might even make things worse, if things can actually get worse. What you really have to do is to deal with yourself first. Don't seek the salvation of others if you can't even help yourself. Got that?
When meeting with single parents, it's important you understand their situation. You shouldn't assume the results because first of all, you're just a newbie in the single parent profession, so don't assume being an expert on the topic.
Next, their situation might not always be the same as yours, so if you give them the wrong kind of advice, it might make their problem worse.
And most importantly, you must not treat them like they're different from anyone else. Always keep in mind that they're still normal people but with a different situation. We should also start a good conversation so they'd be comfortable with you.
You'll have to remember that you shouldn't get things complicated by asking about their past and putting them into awkward situations that might put the person on the spot.
He/she will likely want to be out of there because of the uncomfortable feeling. Always remember, you don't control what he/she thinks and must understand that at all times.
