This can happen a lot with single moms (guys think we need action, are lonely and desperate—LOL) and it can be so heartbreaking to us, because like any other woman, we want connection. "Go on a lot of dates."Dating is so fun if you play your cards right," says single mom Heather, 26.
The guy wants you, but is not willing to sign up for the rest of your life. "I have a two-year-old son and not much help, so I signed up for online dating, to browse, when my son was sleeping at night." She says it turns out there are a lot of sweet, cool guys online, looking to date, but nothing serious.

This isn't about your desire to be with some dude who's over six feet tall.
It's about the big stuff: if he smokes, if he's monogamous, if he pays the rent on time, if he wants more kids. "Before you go on a date, write down all your deal-breakers," Sarah says.
And, no, it's not all going to be like, "Girls, make him come to you" (though that's not bad advice).
