Yes, moms are really efficient and they’re used to doing a lot of cooking and cleaning.
But if a single mom invites you over for dinner — whether a romantic evening for two, or with her kids — she had to clean up a whole lot of Legos and finger paint and string cheese wrappers, and wrangles in an extra trip to the market and wine store to make it happen.
Be careful and watch for signs that she really isn't over him but make sure you communicate any concerns you have with her directly. Her hands are full as it is so throw the games out the window.

“Wow, you look good considering you had two kids.”4. But women new to single motherhood may still be learning how to balance their new dating life with their job as a full-time single mom.Be patient while she adjusts and when she expresses her emotions or feelings about dating as a mother the best thing you can do is listen.Plus, it tells her (and any other woman, for that matter) that she was your Plan B for the evening.

When a guy laughs at my funny-kid story, or is sympathetic about my mom worries, I’m in. But if you tend to take turns picking up the bill, but she sometimes rearranges her life to get out of the house and pays for a babysitter so she can spend time with you, acknowledge that.“You look great for a mom.” That. But she wants to feel like you’re interested in her in every part of her womanhood — including motherhood. If it has been more than a few months, or things get very serious very quickly, and she hasn’t brought up introducing the kids, bring it up. Know that when she invites you over, it is more work for her than when you invite her over.
