Dating for divorced moms dating a man who drinks gets drunk on weekends
The only other big realization I had is I didn't like the divorce moms my own age because they reminded me a ton of my yucky ex wife, so I dated younger divorced moms until I met my wife. For a few years, she wouldn't date men with children because she already had her hands full with her two little kiddos and didn't want the added responsibility of being a step-mom (and having to deal with an ex-wife, etc.). I had better experiences with the paid sites like Match [than] free sites like Zoosk where you had to pay a little to do more than look. Some of us initiated our divorce, others were "dumped." Some divorces involved infidelity.
What she found was the 35-40 year old childless men weren't very well equipped to be a step-dad and just didn't GET things like how kids anchor you in space until they're out of school. I just thought the people on there were a little more serious. Pay sites, IMHO - attract people with jobs that can afford to pay and are a bit more serious about it.

Sorry for the burner, but my family and friends know my regular account. I'm looking for an online dating site that's suitable for divorced moms.
From my point of view, my marriage was dead for a long time so I'm really craving companionship.
I've looked at Match, Eharmony, Christian Mingle and the other big names, but I want to hear from you guys which sites you think are the best. I tried match but found way too many mercenary women on there for my taste. And I'm not dating for a step-dad, but it's just another level of criteria now.
(' Your 401k must be at least $X to message me')I found more luck on Okcupid than any other site though some of that may be local/regional. My kids are young and still have many years before they move out.
After all, now I'm dating for a partner for myself and a step-dad for my kids. I would love to meet a guy who's also a divorced dad or even a widower.
I viewed it as an experience to learn more about myself.
This process really allowed me to understand what I wanted in a mate and in a relationship.
