A single mothers rant

I can't understand it. I'm 22 years old and a single mother! Why is it that I can't find a good man? It seems that guys only use me to procreate, then leave. All I'm looking for is someone who treats me right, and treats my kids right. I have never cheated on a boyfriend or anything. I have been engaged twice, once with each of my kids fathers, but then it didn't work out. When will I find my happily ever after. Now, I'm not saying that I need a man to complete me. I'm doing fine on my own. It's just that I get lonely. I am ready to settle down, but no one to settle down with. I understand that I'm still young, but it's getting really difficult. I see all my friends getting married, while I stay single. It's frustrating! I'm tired of being alone. I want someone to share my life with, so where is he? I just hope he hurries up! I'm tired of being alone. I want what any woman wants, a good guy and a family. Why can't I find the right guy for me?

Men tend to think that if you are a single mother then you are trying to find a guy to take care of you and your baby. A baby that isn't theirs. This kinda turns most guys off. But there are guys out there who would love to take care of you and your baby. You would be surprised that love comes to you when you least expect it so don't try so hard.

It's really difficult not to try hard. I'm getting so tired of it I feel like I'm about to explode! I just hate being alone! Thanks for your response and I'll try and hang in there.

I think guys are scared when they see a single mom with kids. I'm not sure what scares them, but something does. I think it will be hard to find a keeper, but once you find the right one, I think you will know because they won't be so easy to scare off.

I can totally understand where you are coming from. I used to be a single mom until i recently met my fiance and I had the exact same problem with guys. . . I think that maybe they think that if you have a kid you are easy or something, i dunno. . . but it's dumb. Like single moms don't have enough on their plate without having to stress over that as well. . . when i got to the point where i thought i was never going to find a decent man and stopped looking, i found one. . .how ironic. . .lol

Well when the right one comes along you will know. Do not rush into anything just so you are not lonely anymore. You also have your Kids to think about.
