10 Single Parent Romance Books You Must Read

Single Parent Relationship

Many of you said that you would prefer to date a single parent for a whole bunch of reasons. Maybe you are a single parent, and you think that another single parent is the only person who could understand what you’re going through? Or perhaps you are not a parent, but you’re looking for a single parent because you think that that experience will give somebody a higher level of understanding.

Don’t assume that because someone’s a single parent, they have qualities that make them a better partner. It’s not true. Someone who’s a great partner can be childless, and somebody who’s a parent can be a crappy partner. The only reason that you should be dating a single parent is that you have the capability of loving them and loving their children. There is no other meaning to be put on a person being a parent.
