a loving relationship isnt lying around every corner. while your caregiving is a fine time to weed out the wackos and meet someone worthwhile. if i met a potential and she couldnt or wouldnt understand my comittment to a family elder i dont need her shallow bs anyway. ive already forfeited one friendship because of my caregiving. a woman whom ive done a lot of really nice things for didnt care to even participate minimally in my mothers care. b***h better learn to operate a chainsaw s'wat im sayin..

Any man worth dating would understand your circumstances and be "there" for you through your journey with your Mom. By all means go find him!

Boy I JUST had this conversation the other day. I think about the possibility of starting to date but it just seems like a situation that I just don't want. Not only would I be embarrassed by my mother's behavior but I would have little to no privacy. It would be such a limited relationship. I don't know.... I have almost given up the idea until she passes.

I persoanlly would think you are best off to date and enjoy life to the fullest-while you are in the situation with your Mom. This possible may help you with your caregiving as well--and will be a win-win situation for everone involved.

Good Luck

yes, you are a normal, healthy woman who deserves a family of her own. Indeed, get out their and get a social life, find a good man, have a home life for yourself and for your daughter. She probably could use a good step-dad in her life. So, get a life, live a little and find one. Best to ya! :)

make friends from the opposite sex and see if they are good canditates for you to go dating. I wouldn't wait to start dating, what about if your mom reaches past 100 years old? are you gonna be alone all that time, you will be too old. dating doesn't mean that you have to get married nor engage. evaluate the person very good to see if meets your demands, don't get a loser either. I hope that you get somebody who really deserves you.

mhmarfil, It is a great thing that you are wanting to date someone. Don't put that part of your life on hold just because you are caring for your mother. Life is short and to be enjoyed with whatever makes you happy. Let the sunshine into your heart and life. May you find someone as caring as you are toward your Mom! You deserve to be happy.
