    I Am a Single, Independent, Career Woman, But I Hate Being a Single Mom And Just Wish I Could Get Married to Someone I Love, Settle Down, Share Our Lives Together And Make a Family.

    My daughter's biological father gave me a false pretense to go on.  We were dating for over 2 years when I was seven weeks pregnant and we found out.  He said he wanted to get married and even bought me a ring.  After I hit the second trimester, he told me that he...

    Today I get to take my children to 6 flags.

    Dear "single Dads".

    First, I should preface this by pointing out that I put the words "Single Dads" in quotations. The reason for this will be explained shortly, but I don't want anyone to think that I'm making a blanketed remark about all single fathers. I know that there are some single parent...

    I'm A Single Mom

    Our daughter was nine years old when I decided I'd best get away from her father. Not that he's out of her life, I wouldn't want him to, because he's her dad and will always be. Just because I hate his guts doesn't mean she can't see him. After I broke up, we crashed into my...

    The choice to be single has been one of the
