    Dating. I would imagine that everyone has some sort of reaction to that word. To some, the word evokes memories of romantic moments with a significant other. To others, the word summons horrific memories of blind dates that made you want to run for the hills.

    So, I’ve scoured the interwebs for tips that should help when dating a single mom. Here are eight rules that I think will lead you in the right direction.
