I know we all have our stories on dating and knowing when the other person we are with is “just not into you”. ..I know we all have our stories on dating and knowing when the other person we are with is "just not into you". .. Coming to the realization that the person we are with has been providing us with not-so-discrete clues that the relationship is ending can leave us feeling sad, empty and lonely.
Dating as a single parent is difficult under the best of circumstances. There are so many variables to deal with: Family Schedule, Work Schedule, Social/ School / Sporting Activities, My Weekend OFF, My weekend ON, Her Weekend OFF , Her Weekend ON. The list goes on and on. It is a challenge to get into a "dating routine" as a Single Parent. And then, it happens. What if that person is "just not that into you"? Suddenly you notice your dating frequency is on the decline as is her/his availability. So, you decide to share your story with a few close friends.
I have discovered that it is a little more painful when I am out with my friends discussing these newfound clues in my relationship only to discover that my friends are more ‘’tuned into" the clues than I have been. It just doesn’t seem right. "What do you mean, she’s not into me?" I say shouting to my best friend over the football game on TV in my living room. And then he goes over the very detailed map and layout of events that leads you to your final conclusion… "It’s over, isn’t it?"
I have asked a couple friends and fellow bloggers to share their experiences of this very topic for our Single Parent Community and would love for you to see, read, and share your favorite stories on this subject: "He/She’s just not that into you…"
