If you've won the love of a single mom, you've hit the relationship jackpot.
Few love as selflessly and fiercely as a woman who's raised her kiddos on her own (or mostly on her own). We recently asked a handful of divorced moms to give their best elevator pitch for dating single mamas. Any single mom you date likely has a lot on her plate -- and much of it comes her way unexpectedly. Par for the course.) What that means for you is that she'll understand if you're running late for a dinner date because of a deadline at work. Failed dinner plans are nothing to us." If you want a woman who gets things done, look no further than a single mom, says writer Jennifer Ball.

It doesn't help that most men I've dated have either asked for space, took space without warning or turned space into "Goodbye."Because I thought men did that rubber band thingy where they pulled back a lot, I would often tiptoe around a man who seemed like he was "on break," afraid to express my need for connection and emotional security while stifling my anger about what seemed like selfish behavior on his part. Or, if you're single, do you find that most of the men you date take more personal space than you'd like? And, husbands miss their spouses more when separated than do wives.
After all, "man space" can be frightening and lonely. If you feel like a man's need for space is making you needy and insecure, it could be that you're just dating the wrong men. I would guess that single/dating men would not desire as much together-time in their dating relationships as their female counterparts.
However, I think these results would be less correlated to the stage of their relationships than with the type of men who get married.
As single mom Kasey Ferris explains, she's probably dealt with far worse. "We do everything, and I mean everything," she says.
"Have you ever taken a kiddo to the mall and had them spill an entire Slurpee all over themselves then pitch a major earth-shattering meltdown with four people ahead of you in line at the register? "We bring home the bacon, we fry it up in the pan, we clean the pan...hell, we bought the pan.
