Sexologist, Jessica O’Reilly shows two single moms eager to get back into the dating scene how to get their sexy back and shares her dating advice.
“I’m a 37 year old single mom with a 6 year old daughter. I am balancing a career as an image makeover consultant and stylist, with being a mom and trying to find a man but am having a hard time meeting nice guys.”
Men might be intimidated by you so you might want to look for other entrepreneurs who understand your lifestyle. Try to make some single friends, the more people you associate with, the bigger your dating pool. Your next love could be your cousin's friend's butcher's postman! Since you worry so much about losing control over the life you have created for you and your daughter it would be best to face that anxiety. Step out of your comfort zone and relinquish a bit of control at a time, it will be easier doing it bit by bit and you will see huge results.
“I’ve been a single mom for 9 years now, raising two boys. I’m the hockey mom, coach and a community volunteer. I have dated on and off but can’t seem to find that Mr. Right with the way I look and feel. I am missing the confidence because I think I look like a mom.”
Take off all those other hats, like hockey mom and volunteer, and wear your “woman” cap (and the underwear to match). Stop separating motherhood from womanhood; the two are not mutually exclusive. You can find a style that is functional for your mom duties, but still exudes confidence and sex appeal. Don't hide behind your hockey mom image, embrace it. Meet other singles and spend a little more time on yourself to feel more confident.
