But it is bullshit (even if it was good of him to employ them). I am a mother, exactly as I said I as when I met you online/the office/Starbucks/swing dancing/trashed at your cousin’s wedding.Rejecting me because I have children has every single thing to do with me.

Few love as selflessly and fiercely as a woman who's raised her kiddos on her own (or mostly on her own). We recently asked a handful of divorced moms to give their best elevator pitch for dating single mamas. Any single mom you date likely has a lot on her plate -- and much of it comes her way unexpectedly. Par for the course.)

At brass tacks, you are still a provider, one in which whatever contributions you make isn't valued enough. Many men don't receive the affection they'd like, simply because honey is too exhausted from juggling work, kids, and who knows what else.
