Before I start on the lessons I learned about dating a single dad, let me give you a bit of history about me.
In early 2011, after almost 10 years of marriage, I found myself divorced, single, in my mid-30s and (gasp!! For the first year and a half of my new “singleness” I shunned the thought of dating.
I wasn’t ready to share my life with someone and really needed the time to grow and figure out who I was, and what I really wanted in my life.
When I finally decided that I was ready to date again, I had this expectation that dating in your 30s was going to be just like dating in your 20s. My hope is to write the dad side of this story and gather contributing single-mom writers to tell the other half.
