What have I gotten myself into? A little over 2 years ago, I packed up my two children, 4 & 7 years old, and left my lying, cheating husband. I had no idea how I was going to be a single mom, I had so many questions and reservations.
Would I be able to afford it on my own? Would I be able to give them enough attention? Will they miss out on things? Will their father still be in their lives? What have I gotten myself into?!
After the initial shock wore off I realized, I was FREE! I had been married for 8 years to a man who held me back. A selfish man, who snuffed out my light. A man who forgot to tell me I was beautiful and who forgot his vows. I now had the opportunity to start over and I’m in the perfect city to do so.
So, what now? I’m 31, a single mom, I have a total “mom body”, I had no idea if I was attractive, and I had no idea what I was looking for. I haven’t dated in over 10 years and I wasn’t even good at it then.
For about a year I went out with a few guys and had great stories about my adventures. My girlfriends were always teasing me about starting a blog to chronicle my experiences. “You can’t make this stuff up,” they would say. And for a while, I considered it. I even wrote a post that I thought was really good. And then I put it off, for about 6 months.
But here I am, now ready to share my adventures and in the process hopefully encourage other single moms, 30 somethings, or even my plus size cohorts to get out there and enjoy your single
life. I’ll be chronicling all my adventures, from dates to group outings and everything in between.
Hold on ladies, this should be a fun ride!
