Something I didn’t mention in my profile, however, is that I’m still breastfeeding. This isn’t a big deal for a new mom who’s washing her hands all the time anyway to protect her newborn, but my date, who would probably try to get a little handsy, would need to be informed and perhaps reminded. I’m not going to sit here and speculate about what other people do in bed, but for me, that would just be too weird.

I knew that the dating pool was small where I live, but I was still surprised that so many guys were interested in dating a single mom. We chatted for a while but it was taking him forever to ask me out.
