In 2007, I met my husband on a little website called My Space.
(You may have heard of it.) One evening, I was cruising the site for dates, entering all the criteria that mattered to me — height, education, facial hair — when a picture of the man who would one day be the father of my children blowing a noise maker with his nose was so captivating that I knew I had to have him.
I created profiles on two online dating sites: Plenty of Fish (POF) and Ok Cupid. I chose those sites mainly because they both ask whether or not you have children when creating your profile. Being a single mom and trying to date is even harder.Self-described "Self Love Ambassador" and online personality Derrick Jaxn can appreciate this, and has a few things to say about the value in dating someone with kids of her own.You may consider bringing the child a small gift to show your good will and sincere interest in him, such as baseball cards for a collector or new crayons for an aspiring artist.Don’t bring anything extravagant, which he may perceive as an effort to buy his affection.
