(Guys, if you’re reading this…get in touch if you want to share!
)Below are the common types of women single grownup men have told me about. Read the general description of each here, or start reading more about each Femitype, starting with The Princess — click here.
I never answer the phone, sometimes I don't text back for days, (or, even worse, I do those osmosis texts that involve me reading the message and writing you back in my head and not in real life because I got sidetracked), and you haven't seen me in months.
Extend the invitation and I will be there if I can.And we don't always have someone patting us on the back to say, "Great job!" So it means a lot when someone says your son has such good manners and seems to have mastered the art of sharing his toy cars.But, there is no need for you to pepper us with your comments about how hard it must be and you don't know what you would do if [insert husband/partner's name here] weren't around.God forbid you might have to stay up all night with a baby on your own and get to work in the morning on time! I still can't figure out why people assume that single people with kids can't be happy.I’ve talked to countless single men over the years about their experiences with women, especially those in midlife and beyond.Here are some of their stories of dating after 40; dating that never turned into relationships, this is.Otherwise, please don't think you have to set me up with every single man that you happen to know or come across because you really feel like I need a man in my life. There's nothing that I wouldn't do for my son and just because his father isn't in his life doesn't mean that I love him less or resent having to take care of him.In fact, the fact that it's just the two of us has made me love him even more. Not only do I find it difficult to do anything outside of my own (and my son's) jam-packed schedule, I sometimes experience this single-parent guilt that tells me I must do everything 200 percent or more.By the end of the day, there's not much energy left to do anything but pass out in my bed. That's 48 hours or more because last-minute anything probably isn't realistic.
