First of all, they're more entertaining. Secondly, we share those stories as cautionary tales to warn each other of the dangers and douche bags -- helpful especially to us single moms who are dating after years of being off the shelf.
When I started dating again after 16 zoiks! What I wasn't prepared for was for so much to go People still go on dates. You know, date dates?
Maybe Millennials have given up on the ancient practice, but adults my age are still doing real dates. I've gone to dinner, to the movies, to plays, to the opera. What I'm not doing: Guys are still picking up the check.
However you feel about it, that is still happening as well. I mean, if you insist, you can go dutch or cover the check yourself. But I've been surprised to find guys diving for that check at the end of the night. And considering what I'm paying in babysitting, it's usually just fine with me. Childless guys will happily date moms.

Here I thought it would be only single dads who'd want to date me. But nope -- I've dated just as many never-married guys with no kids. Sarah Kowalski was in her early 40s when she found herself without a partner and yearning to experience the joy of raising a child.
After the birth of her son, Sarah knew she could help women in similar situations navigate paths to becoming parents, so she started Motherhood Reimagined. Her goal was to guide aspiring single mothers on the steps necessary to have a child in the face of fertility issues, or lack of a partner, and offer emotional support along the way.
As an online community, support group, and coaching service rolled into one, MotherhoodReimagined. Motherhood Reimagined Founder Sarah Kowalski had done everything by the book. She was a successful corporate litigator by age 30 and always knew she wanted to have kids of her own, but life seemed to get in the way of that dream.
Not long into her career, Sarah was diagnosed with a repetitive strain injury also known as work-related upper limb disorder and chronic fatigue. She left her law career and sought alternative therapies, including Feldenkrais and Qigong, which are both centered on mindful movement. When she reached her late 30s, she was working as a somatic life coach helping individuals in executive leadership change their career paths.
Through self-exploration and a realization that her age was making the question of children a priority, Sarah knew the answer was yes. The one problem, or so she thought, was that she was single. I could get pregnant with a partner and he could leave the next day or get hit by a bus; there is no guarantee around any sort of path.
It was a major paradigm shift for me.
