Big Weekend

November 14, 2008

I’m frantically packing. I’ve been planning this weekend’s trip since… oh, Monday. But I waited to pack until tonight. Smart. Tomorrow morning Benjamin, Mr. Man and I are headed down to Kan-Tuck-Ee (I love saying it like that) to visit Morgan (aka Modern Single Momma or, as I like to call her, my soul sister). [...]

How to date the childless.

June 25, 2008

The first question most single parents ask when they finally get back out there on the dating scene is, “Can I even date someone without a kid?” The challenges to dating someone without a child can be daunting.

From Doomsday to Hot Single Dads.

May 28, 2008

You know when I wish I had a man the most? Every time I pick up a newspaper. Because … It might be nice to have a man around to do the heavy lifting, the fighting or the hunting when shit hits the fan. Seriously. I’m scared. Most of us single moms aren’t rolling in [...]

Hollywood’s single parent couple?

May 27, 2008

Reports say Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong are an item. They were spotted leaving a Monaco hotel room this weekend en route to a boat trip. Wouldn’t that be nice? I wonder if they brought the kids? Armstrong’s twin girls are seven and his son is nine. Hudson’s son, Ryder, is just four. I’m sure [...]

May 16, 2008

Being a single parent is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences a person can go through. But what often can make or break your sanity – is having true friends.

We’ve got a live one…

April 16, 2008

Here we go again.

Another commenter bashing us because we’re happy single parents.

Today’s live wire comment thread is coming from a particularly bitter stay-at-home mom who calls our families “broken” and also says she would never spend a millisecond away from her children to find someone to get her “jollies off on.” (I didn’t know people still used that term – “jollies.” Ha.

Try SingleParentLoveLife.com for Free.

January 15, 2008

When you’re a single mom or a single dad online dating is sometimes the only viable option. You can’t get out of the house at night without shelling out for a sitter so one solution is shopping for your men or women online.

I personally didn’t have much luck dating online but I largely blame E-Harmony for that. Read about why I think E-Harmony is a scam here. But there are so many other sites out there and when you can try one for free – why not?
