    oh don't give up.
    it's got to be hard. I can't even imagine.
    are you dating ppl you know or totally blind dates?

    I've been living vicariously through my sis (who would kill me if she knew I was posting here) - she's is a single mom w/ a 6 y.o. and has just got back into dating. Lots of trial and error before a good one comes along.

    I will tell you the same thing I told her, at this stage in the game, have fun. if it's not fun, get out of it...

    church might be a good place to start - if you go to church regularily.

    in all honesty, 2 of my single friends have met great people through sites like plenty of fish.
    it's worth a try

    sorry you're having a rough go of it. Dating sucks, period. Single mama or not. lol

    I've always lived by the let it go, and just enjoy life. Eventually someone will pop up somewhere you least expect it to!

    aww. That sucks. Don't give up!! You just be you. Have fun, enjoy life. Get out there and have a good time just being you! That "right" person will come along eventually, but don't force it. If you find someone you can just chill out with and have a coffee that would be cool. I've heard alot about people who just went out and had a good time and just when they stopped looking, they found Mr. Right, not Mr. Right Now. Good Luck, and Have Fun!

    im on plentyoffish, i met some cool people from there. There is some really nice guys on that site, but none i could be with long term.(personally)

    myself i think i need a guy who has kids the ones i've dating who dont have any dont understand how i cant do things on a whim and that bugs them. lol im still trying to find sumone who does understand lol

    it gets easier as you keep ging through it i have tried dating 4 guys since i left DD's father and i found that the ones without kids are not my type lol.

    keep trying dont give up!! (hugs)

    I know some people who met through online dating services, too.
    I met my husband through a dating service, though not a high tech one like that lol it was a while ago.
    I'd try that

    Go buy a huge tub of heavenly hash.. I think its the only real cure for sucky relationships because immediatly after eating you forgot how much dating sucks and start obsesing over needing to go to the gym, lol.
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    I'm on the single rollercoaster too. (((big hugs))) Yes guys with no kids don't get it. Dating sites are more miss than hits. I hit the bottom too and swear I'm to break down and fill the house with cats. I've been told many times 'The best way to find anyone is to stop looking.'.
