Mum reveals why dating and finding love as a single parent is ‘a totally different world’ — and you can forget spontaneous getaways

WHEN I told Tom*, a guy I was dating, that I didn’t want to see him any more as we ‘wanted different things’, he probably thought I meant marriage and commitment.

You know, the things women are so unimaginatively accused of wanting more than men?

In reality, the things I want are fantastic nights out followed by lots of sεχ – but sadly they didn’t seem to top his list of priorities.

It might sound harsh to ditch someone because they’re happy simply cuddling on the sofa once a week, but as a single mum, my free time when I can actually leave the house is precious, and I certainly didn’t want to waste it watching telly with Tom.

I’ve been flying solo since my divorce a few years ago, not long after my son Josh*, now five, was born.
