On the very rare occasion I got as far as five or seven messages. One story sums up my experience with Tinder pretty nicely, and it happened to be the last time I amazingly matched with a woman. So we matched. It showed some real resourcefulness using an up until now unknown phrase. I told her precum ketchup could probably get a magical burr out of her foot. Then I asked if I could slap her ass. It was pretty depressing, frankly. Fuck Tinder. After my divorce I wanted to start dating again. At first I was looking for women 30 to 40 but then started focusing on 30 to 35 mostly, since matches were all over the place when I got them.
I would say 60 to 70 percent of women between 30 and 35 were looking for a hookup that could lead to more. You go to dinner, go back to their or your place and then they ghost you and move on. Maybe it was me not ticking a box, or maybe they had other options to try out.
17 financial steps to a rich life as a single mom
Then there is another 10 to 15 percent that are scams or bots. Almost all want a kid right away. You can spot them a mile away. They start out with one of their interview questions that lot of them list on their profile: What do you do? How much do you make? What kind of car do you drive? Thankfully, I got wise to the foolishness of marriage before I ever stepped into one and had kids with a woman who would leave. I also — very, very thankfully — got wise to how single moms work after dating too many seeking after a long-term commitment and marriage.
Just when I think maybe there is hope that some single moms might be decent, another single mom I meet reminds me not to ever trust one for any reason. THIS is the true vision of most single moms today. Does being a SAHM have value? Yes, I certainly think it does. Good grief Darth, your outlook makes me really sad — for you. There are good and bad men AND women out there.
I think your attitude might attract the wrong type of women. What are you hiding?
Helpful financial tips for life as a successful single mom
Single mom. No child support. No government assistance. Graduated college 6 months after my child was born. Now have a job making 60k with full benefits and opportunities to promote. Fuck off. If you meet an asshole in the morning, you met an asshole.
Darth- I assure you that your generalization of single mothers wanting a man solely for financial means to inevitably drain him is completely wrong. Are there women like that? Marriage can be beautiful, if two people enter into it in their own time with good intentions. Full time mother. Full time civilian for the Government. I do not need a man to fulfill a void nor do I need his financial assistance. I can support myself thank you. So Darth, you tell me what type of person is worse. These are all great points, and mostly common sense. I make a pretty good salary, am pretty frugal, and still wonder how any parent, married or single, has much left after a paycheck.
I had to take a few deep breaths before I responded to this comment. I was a stay at home mom for almost my entire marriage. My ex traveled all over the world, sometimes for months at a time. I felt stuck at times. Too many kids and not enough time to get a job. Have you paid for daycare Darth? Then came the end. I stare at the ceilings most nights wondering how I can support myself and three kids with no job and no education.
I am fully aware this is my fault. Do not rub it in. I wasted time. By many accounts I am entitled to that money. I took care of running the house and raising the kids while he furthered his career. I am in school, raising our boys alone because he still travels constantly and trying desperately to find a way to make money so I can tell him to keep his money. Darth, please remember some of us mommies do not want a mans money. Emma, thank you for the idea of taking a mentor out to lunch to learn about opportunities and lessons.
I would have never thought about that one. Im a single mom living in the Caribbean. I work really hard to provide for my self and my son, plus send my self back to school and to be financially independent. My problem is i cant seem to make ends meet and move out my moms home. Every busy i try or venture in , im unable to keep it a float , due to the minimum wage im earning. I need advise on the way forward and achieving my goals. Hi Nashima- thanks for your note.
