If you’re looking to date a single mother over 40, then there’s a few things you need to bare in mind. There’s a big difference between a single mother and a single woman without kids. With that being said, here are some tips to help you to meet that right woman and not mess it up!
5 Tips To Help You Date A Single Mother Over 40
#1 – Her Time Is Limited
A single mother will be very busy and have a lot to deal with. This means she won’t have a lot of spare time for you. You need to be aware of this and make the most of the time you get together. If she goes to the effort of getting someone to look her kid(s) then be sure to make it worth her while and treat her well.
Having limited time together is not always a bad thing. It means you will probably both want to make the most of it and do exciting things together.
#2 – Adapt To Any Changes
A lot of things can get in the way when children are involved. You might have planned a night out, booked dinner reservations but then a child falls ill and she has to cancel. You can’t let this frustrate you, you just need to accept it and know that it might be a common thing.
This will make you more grateful when you do spend that quality time together. You need to be able to adapt to sudden changes that will come your way.

#3 – Be Open For Play Dates
The most important thing in a relationship is to spend time with each other. When kids are involved, this will not make it easy to be alone. But one thing you can do is include the children on your dates. Go out for the day to the park or the beach. The kids will love it and she will think a lot more of you too.
#4 – The Ex Situation
If she has come out of a long term relationship and the kids father is still around, this might be awkward but it doesn’t have to affect your relationship. He’s the ex for a reason and you shouldn’t have to worry about her wanting him back. Be sure to be the man that he wasn’t and you’ll never have to worry about feeling jealous at all.
#5 – Be Keen But Not Too Keen
A single mother will be very protective of her children. She probably won’t want you to meet them early on in the relationship. Accept this for what it is. Don’t be too keen to meet them as it might put her off. Just take her lead and follow what she suggests. When the time is right, you’ll get to meet them but only when she feels it is that time.
If you’re over 40, then there’s a good chance that many women you meet will have children. So it’s important you learn to deal with this as best you can. Hopefully these single mother over 40 dating tips will give you some guidelines as to how to play it.
Just be patient, follow her lead and let the magic happen!
