If you suddenly found yourself single...

If you suddenly found yourself single in your current circumstances (kids, job, school, whatever) would you date again? Do you think it would take time to do so or would you probably jump right in? If you wouldn't date, why do you think you might not? Would any of this depend on why you were single?

    I feel like I would seriously struggle to find the time. Unless I ended up meeting up with a single dad at a playground or something, I wouldn't go anywhere that wasn't related to my daughter. Which is kind of the way we are now, except that I'm married. I think it would take me a very long time to get out there again.

      I wouldn't. I don't know what I would do. I wouldn't have to worry financially, because of some stuff we have set in place, but I don't think I would date again. My husband always thinks he's going to die young, just because his dad did of cancer. I hate it when he says that. I can't imagine us breaking up...we have no problems with each other, and we have Nina. Trevor's the only guy I've ever been interested. My husband keeps telling me that if he ever did die, I shouldn't grieve for too long because he knows I would, he keeps saying that if something happened to him, he'd want me to be with our friend Eric, who has expressed interest before. But I prefer to believe nothing will happen and we'll both live to be senile and have fun as demented old people.

          it's funny that you bring this up because I've been struggling with that very question. I've actually been a single mom for a while but lately I've been going back and forth in my head debating whether or not I want to start dating again. After my husband and I split, I actually dated a guy pretty soon after and felt like he was the one. I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him and he felt the same way. But I was so scared to be committed again after my marriage that I ended up breaking up with him because of that paralyzing fear! I regret it every day now because I still love him but now the question still remains, do I start dating again? Of course I'm super busy and dating in general would be hard to find time to do. I know my parents want me to be happily settled down with the right person. Dating itself doesn't bother me, it's the idea of becoming committed again that absolutely scares me!!!

            In current situation, if I was to end up s word then I would move somewhere I wouldn't have those memories to haunt me, though looking at my daughter and seeing part of him would tear me up. I'd be very sad.
