HelloHello to everyone. My sister talked me into signing up so I would be able to talk to other single mothers for advice and anything else. So I guess I'll just start out with an introduction.
I have a 5 month old dd who is so happy and amazing. She's changed my life in so many ways. Last year was tough for me, my bf of 3 years walked out on me, found himself someone new within 3 weeks and then I found out after 4 weeks that I was 51/2 months pregnant. He didn't make the choice to come back and try to work things out, but throughout the pregnancy he was extremely supportive and there for me every step of the way.
It has been almost a year since he left and it has taken me awhile to work through the hurt and anger of his leaving. I wasn't expecting to date, since my dd is so young, but since Jan. I have been lucky enough to meet an incredible guy through the internet. We've been talking over IM, and within the last few weeks went from text messaging and now talking over the phone. Everything seems to flow so smoothly between us when we talk. There are never any awkward silences, just conversation leading to us getting to know each other better. He has a 2 year old dd and seems to have his life in order in every way, included having a 4-year plan for his career, which is the least I can say about my ex, or any other guy I've ever known.
We seem to have really clicked from the beginning, but I'm a little worried as I don't know if it's too soon for me since my dd is still so young. I'm taking things extremely slow and not letting it get in the way of my parenting or anything else in my life, but I feel completely rejuvenated in every way. Everyone has noticed that I'm holding my head higher and seem a lot happier. Is it right for me to be thinking about and possibly dating when my dd is so young? I don't know what the responsible thing to do is.
We did finally go for coffee last night and it was amazing. We talked just like we do when it's over the phone or in a text message. I've never had chemistry like this before, even when I was with my ex. It's such a wonderful feeling!
