    dating a single mom question

    So I have been friends with this woman for years and we have developed an attraction for one another and started dating. well if you consider it dating. problem is this, we make plans and they get canceled for understandable reasons ex… her kids are sick, her friend is bringing her sons friend over for the weekend, she’s busy with work and kids after work etc.., her son had a fight with a neighbor kid cant call or talk and when I understand and ask wen would be a good time she says when she’s not cool anymore to her son who is upset and spending time with her. which means not for the rest of the day. the list goes on.

    My thoughts are why is she even bothering getting involved with someone when she cant even manage a phone call once in a blue moon for a few tiny minutes? is this the normal mentality of single moms? wants to date but then shows no time or even the effort to communicate in the simplest of ways?
    am I over reacting to this? I mean I’ve been super patient.

    you have to give her rom when it’s a kid and ayoung kid. kids are unpredictable and demanding… things happen outof the blue all the time and there is no such thing as “scheduling” with kids. it doesn’t work that way.

    just be patient. maybe catch a quick 5-10 min good night call each night to give her a great end to each night.. maybe agreat start to each day. or a mid-day break to break it up … single parenting is even worse – be patient, understnading… in the end.. you will always be 2nd fiddle to the kid – either you can accept that or no.
