At times, it’s inevitable to fall for a friend and want to date them.
Effort = Planning in advance, which means I feel like you respect my time. Sharing hobbies and traveling together are important aspects in evolving relationships.

I put in everything I’ve got- physically and emotionally- so he never has to feel like he’s missing a parent. Time with you = Time away from my kid which means you better make sure it is worth it.
But if you take away who we are as people, what remains is our differing positions in life; I’m a single mother and he’s a childless dude.
