I could talk all day about the types of women a single Dad should avoid. But for this article, I’m going to keep things positive and talk about the women you should go after. Each single Mom that has her act together will display these 5 attractive characteristics…
Worries about her kids
A good parent constantly worries about their kids when they aren’t with them. It’s a good sign if you’re out on a date and she mentions that she needs to check-in with the babysitter to see how things are going. Even though you’re on a date, a caring mother is still equally concerned about what her kids are doing. Why should this matter to you? Because she will likely give the same kind of caring attention to your kids someday.
Will ditch you for an emergency without flinching
There’s nothing worse than a date that ends unexpectedly. That is, of course, unless she ditches you to attend to her sick child. Some parents will call the father to take the child to the hospital so they don’t flake out on the new guy. I have mad respect for any woman that puts her kids above anything. Her leaving a date for her child should not bother you.
No apparent baggage
Having kids doesn’t mean she has baggage. You can easily tell how much baggage she has from your first conversation. Does she constantly complain about her crazy ex? If so, you’re in for quite the headache. If she hardly even mentions the ex, this is an encouraging sign.
Her kids aren’t the only part of her life
I’m very much against dating a woman that doesn’t have much going for her other than her kids. She’ll be likely to get attached to you too quickly and will become controlling. Single Mom’s love their kids, but they need more than that to be completely happy. When there is nothing else in their life (i.e. good job, close friends), they become emotionally attached right away to the first thing that comes along.
She’s been out with other men
I like a woman that’s been around – but not in the bedroom. It shows me she’s not desperate enough to settle for the first guy she meets. Women that are patient usually have high self-esteem. Ask her how many guys she’s met recently online. If it’s more than 1 or 2, that could be a good sign…unless she scared the other men away!
