The institution of marriage has taken a severe beating in modern times and the concept of living in relationships and many divorces has meant that there are many single parents out there looking for potential partners. Unfortunately many among them have a tendency to feel rather spent and isolated and do not venture into fresh dating, That is rather ironical because from a dating perspective, they are the ideal group of people to woo since they have already demonstrated their ability to raise a family, have lived with somebody and would thus know the pros and cons of a relationship and have also undergone the trials and tribulations of married life. They thus have all the right and eligibility criteria to get back into active dating and their partners should feel happy that they have been able to find somebody so experienced.
But things do not quite work out that way. Single parents spend a lot of time tending to their children as one means of killing time outside work and as a means to fill the void created by the separation from their partner. They do tend to withdraw them selves from the social scene and want more time for them selves to get over a broken relationship. Very few of them realize that by spending more and more time with the children and not getting social, they are being hard on the child or children.
