Well... I am currently not dating. You'll have to check out my hub titled The One Year Challenge to hear the entire story. However, when I was dating... I found it difficult to balance dating and parenting. I'd heard MANY times that women shouldn't allow different men around their children, so for the most part I tried to avoid that, however... if you want to have a dating life that is consistent, that'll be a difficult task. In the past, my son met a few people that I dated and even though he only met them under the presumption that they were a friend, months after they were long gone, he continued to ask about them. For this reason, I try to keep him and my lovelife as seperate as possible. It will probably be this way until I enter a serious committed relationship with someone.
