As a single parent, dating can be wonderful and scary thing. It's always hard to bring someone new to meet your child because you want to make sure that that person is worthy of meeting your child. The first step in dating is to take time and really become friends with that person that you are thinking of dating before you decide to introduce them to your kids and to make that step. If you are a single parent, then there is an assumption that there was this other person that is part of the kids life that is no longer there. You don't want to bring someone too soon and have the child become connected to a person that might not be there very long. Then you will have to transition your kid again. It's just really good to get to know the person. Make sure they are an outstanding person and worthy to be around your kid. Another piece of advice I would give to other single parents that are thinking about dating is to consider other single parents. It's a lot easier to date someone that has their own child or children. It's much easier to date someone with children than someone who doesn't have children.
