Octomom, Nadya Suleman, said that she doesn’t plan on dating until her kids are at least 18-years old. ”I get way too much male attention,” said the single mom, according to People. ”When men look at me, I look away and they know not to approach me. I know I’m beautiful – I don’t need a man to tell me that.” As for now, Suleman’s biggest concern is her children, and she doesn’t plan on that changing anytime soon.

What are some obstacles to dating as a single parent?

Cupid’s Advice:

Dating in general is a challenge, let alone when you have kids. Cupid has some tips:

1. Attatchments: Kids that grow up without a father figure are going to look for someone else to fill that role. If you bring home the people you date, you don’t want your kids to get too attached – especially if it’s not something that you could see working long term.

2. Commitment: As a single parent you’re constantly busy with work and the kids, and having time to build a strong relationship may be a difficult task. However, don’t be afraid to find a babysitter a few nights a month without feeling guilty, because you deserve to find love if you’re seeking it.

3. Prioritizing: New love interests can be exciting and it’s easy to love the flirting and mystery, but don’t let yourself get too caught up. Remember that you have a family to think of, and a crush should never come before your children. If you prioritize your time, you just might end up snagging Mr. Right.

    This woman is beyond the pale. If recent reports are accurate, she cares a lot more about herself than the children. Apparently the local social services authorities are watching her for signs of neglect and abuse.

    Why does this article assume single parent = single mom? As a single dad, I applaud octomom for putting dating aside. I’m likely to do the same.
