Before I met my soon to be ex husband, I wasn't much interested in dating, blew his advances off quite a few times before I gave him a chance lol. So for me, I don't plan to date for at least 2-3 years, but with that being said, I won't turn down someone if I feel they are truly worth giving a chance.. But I'm more about being friends first, building trust (especially after my husband and his sick and twisted lies), getting to know each other..
On the other hand, I do cry sometimes, feeling like I'll be alone forever.. I can just see myself always using my daughter as an excuse to avoid the dating scene and the next thing I know I'll be 85, single with 15 cats
In all the years ive dated, I am really not interested in men and a relationship, dont get me wrong still fancy men but been hurt too many times to even think about men.
defo go out once a month, its my 1st time out this weekend im so nervous so used to the comfort of my home lol
If I did meet someone and he has to be pretty different for me to start a relationship with, I think I would be the same 6 months then he can meet her, i dont want her meeting different men if im not going to be with them long
I have a little weirder situation as I'm bisexual but usually only date women. After OH and I broke up I wasn't at all interested in dating, and thought it was weird because I'm pregnant. Then a girl hit on me haha! All weirdness was gone for women, only weirds me out to date guys. We go out every second weekend, and a night or two a week but I work 9 hours a day six days a week and need my sleep so not always easy and it's only been two weeks ish. BUT she is moving away right before I'm due, so if we decide to get a little more serious she still won't be meeting LO right away or living with me, as she'll be in a different town. Sperm Donour hasn't made any effort in contacting me, which is fine. I'm over it now. But it does mean it will be difficult if she decides to visit past September. I don't want her to get attached or anything, but I don't want to get a babysitter, and will not be able to because I'll hopefully be BFing. So, I haven't quite figured it out, but as it is now it seems to be just a little summer fling, and if it goes further I'll figure it out then. I wouldn't let my LO get attached to them though at first, if it means waiting until they sleep through the night for her to stay over then so be it. Still almost five months away, but it is good to plan ahead.
