Do you feel a lot of pressure as a single parent to date? Are you tired of putting yourself "out there," only to be disappointed? You're not alone.
In fact, it seems that more and more single parents are putting their own social lives completely on hold (at least temporarily). For some, this is an intentional, thoughtful decision. For others, the choice comes from a place of frustration.
But what if you viewed dating -- and growing your social life, in general -- as part of your intentional self-care? Just the act of getting out once in a while and spending time with friends -- men and women, alike -- can be rejuvenating, whether it leads to a relationship or not.
So try not to caught up in the idea that dating has to be an "all or nothing" experience. It's a social experience. A chance to learn and grow and become even more confident in the person you're becoming.
