A couple of years ago I worked for a company that thought it knew moms. One of its leaders was asked to do a presentation on single moms. But she wasn't one.
She was dogged in her task. She had data and insights from single moms. Not sure she ever spoke to one but when there's so much literature out there why bother.
I watched her presentation after the fact and cannot remember a word of it because she had no idea what she was talking about.
We are different than you married people. Your women are afraid of us because even in 2016 single women still are considered sluts. After all you don't have a man. You made a baby with a man but he didn't stick around, or you took that child and left because you had to. The reasons why are hard to hear and more than a blog post could handle.
My story is simple. I married someone who was either the most self serving person ever or he had narcissistic personality disorder neither of which are relevant anymore. He left when the youngest was five and now she is 17. This is our story.
