A lot of my girlfriends and clients in their late 20s and early 30s have shared the same experience with me.

By that point, the ladies have wasted months, if not years, of their time dating someone they could never end up with and they feel terrible about it.

So you've finally met someone. You go, girl! Wondering if it's getting serious enough for this amazing man to meet your kid? While some single moms choose to introduce new boyfriends right away, others wait. It's really a matter of preference. I've always been a waiter. I'm pretty picky about the men I bring into my own life, so you can imagine how picky I am about who I bring into my son's.
