Single parent dating: Get it right

Why does dating again make me feel guilty?

Anything that means you’re not 100% focused on your child has the potential to make you feel guilty. As a parent, you feel responsible for your child’s happiness, especially if you feel that your relationship experiences have not ensured their happiness in the past.

If you are a parent with sole custody of your child, you may feel like you have to overcompensate for your situation. But, your happiness is just as important as your child’s – after all, if you’re not happy you’ll be less capable of making them happy.

Make sure that you take the time to look after yourself too, whether that’s through dating, meeting up with friends or just ensuring that you get a bit of me-time every evening.
