Let us take a look at the reasons: 

Single mothers are bold and badass

Somehow in our society, there is a notion that if there is a woman who is a single mom or separated from an unhappy marriage by her choice, that means she is bold and badass. And this also means that she is interested or ready for a causal relationship.

While sharing experience of dating a single mother wrote on Reddit, “I am a single mum and so I can connect to the struggles of single moms. I recently went to a dating app where I clearly wrote in my bio, looking for a serious relationship. Despite this, many men right-swiped me or had a causal relationship. I even spoke to a guy and I told him that I am not interested in anything casual, despite that, he said that we can also explore a causal relationship.”

Being a single mother does not mean that she is not serious about relationships or marriage.

2. Men are not okay to accept the child

“When I was dating a guy, I cleared it in the initial period of dating that I am a single mother. But after several months when I was expecting a commitment, he said, “I am not able to accept the child as a father”, said a single mom.

Usually, men show interest in dating but when it comes to commitment and marriage, then it becomes a family matter. They often say that how can I convince my family about this relationship? How will my family accept such a relationship? Or I am not ready for this. As per some mothers, these come from even those who are themselves single fathers or divorced, said a single mom.

Why Single Moms deserved to be loved! 

1. Adjustments are a common occurrence in the life of a single mother. 

A single mom has to manage many things single-handedly.

 A woman on quora shared her story, how she is managing life as a single mother. She said, “About 3 years ago, I had an office meeting at night. Therefore, I came home at 9:30 pm. Then I came to know that my baby is having a fever. At that hour, there were no auto rickshaws available. So, I had to carry him myself to the clinic which was a kilometer away. I do not think that anything is really difficult to handle for single moms, except finding good men.”

2. Every single mom is a warrior

She is handling responsibilities of the house, child, and career as well. Therefore, if you are in a relationship with someone like that, they will understand why you were late from the office. The mutual understanding develops well with single mothers. She is well-versed with the challenges of life and knows how to deal with them.

3. They are independent women

Independence means that they can handle a lot of things, especially themselves. Because they have to do everything on their own, from paying rent to taking care of kids’ classes, this makes them highly self-reliant. So, they are not clingy.
