Instead of a grand gesture, they’re more likely to be impressed by tiny but consistent things like an offer to take out the trash, a foot massage or even a goodie bag of comfort food when they’re feeling low.
But this doesn’t mean single parents no longer want to be swept off their feet.
What’s more, they’d be highly concerned about who they welcome into their life because these people may also affect the welfare of their kid.
Once a single parent sees signs that you may not be good with their kid or you’re not really stepmom or stepdad material, the relationship may not progress to anything more meaningful than a physical relationship.
There are two things you need to do to deal with this.
One, you should be supportive enough to give him or her time to take care of their youngster’s wellbeing *plus time to rest afterwards*.
Sometimes it takes years before the child can even form an opinion of you that’s free from the ex’s influence. Let your own personality and genuine kindness shine through, and this may be enough to shake off the ex’s sway on the kid. The single parent’s loved ones will definitely be on the lookout for people who might feed on their vulnerability.
Now many single parents choose to pore over their child’s welfare 24/7 and are therefore out of the dating market.
But there are still some single parents who crave companionship and romance.
Nothing brings out a person’s protective instincts more than the presence of an offspring.
If you come barging into a single parent’s life, you better watch yourself because they won’t take crap from anyone.
There are bills to pay, an education fund to save up for and other basic responsibilities that go with having a child.
