So you want to date a single mother with teenagers? If you ARE one a man who is considering a relationship with a single mama raising teens—here’s an easy-to-read chart. The infographic below is personalized for my life but you’ll get the idea.
Most potential suitors drop out of the Lamar Dating Sweepstakes once they see my pie chart. Those brave or crazy enough wade into my dating pool usually run for the nearest exit once they experience one of the following:
Teenagers – My kids are teenagers, which means I’m on the clock 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Teenagers will make you question your sanity and up your medication. At times, teenagers are like toddlers with car keys and an iPhone. I have primary custody of my children so my teens are with me 99.9% of the time—and I love it.
The Girls – My girlfriends are family and we are very involved in each others lives. My friends have my back and I trust them implicitly. If you don’t get approval from the girls—turn out the lights, the party is over.
Family – My brother is one of my best friends. He believes that background checks should be mandatory for any male interested in dating his sister. My brother assumes that you are guilty of being an asshole until you prove otherwise.
Pugs – Pugs are not dogs. They are aliens from another planet who rule a household. My pugs love Starbucks and they love me. If you don’t like crazy dogs that drool and snort, you won’t enjoy time at my house.
