I dated a lot before I had my daughter, and this was one of the most uncomplicated relationships I’d ever had. We ended up going out a few more times before things fizzled out.Lots of chemistry doesn’t always make for a long-term thing. I’m a feminist single mom who lives with her parents, but if you think that’s as hilarious as I do, we might have something in common.
We could have kept talking for hours if he hadn’t had to go pick up his son. About five minutes into our second date I could tell he wanted to kiss me, and I wanted to kiss him back.
We went to a restaurant on the beach and strolled along the shore afterward holding hands. One of the first things somebody warned me about before I had my daughter was the potential to get mastitis or thrush and how you should always wash your hands before you touch your nipple.
When I first arrived here, there wasn’t yet a complete guide to dating paisa women.
NOTE: I wrote this post about my experience dating women in Medellin back in April of 2013.
When we were in his car, he just planted one on me and we made out. I knew right then and there that I wanted more, and I told him as much. Something I didn’t mention in my profile, however, is that I’m still breastfeeding. This isn’t a big deal for a new mom who’s washing her hands all the time anyway to protect her newborn, but my date, who would probably try to get a little handsy, would need to be informed and perhaps reminded. I’m not going to sit here and speculate about what other people do in bed, but for me, that would just be too weird.
For one thing, I am definitely not interested in somebody who wants to date me I’m breastfeeding. I also knew that it wasn’t going to be an issue until I was ready to be physically intimate with somebody. My baby’s mouth is the only one that belongs there right now.
Again, we chatted a long time until finally I asked him out. When I lived in New York, guys never hesitated to ask me out.
I never had to make the first move, so this was new, but I didn’t mind.
Neither one of us left with any hard feelings, but I feel a lot more confident to continue dating now.
Since becoming a mom, I’ve shed a lot of insecurity, and my new outlook is serving me well in my dating life.
I was dying to see who was using it in the small southern town I live in now. But then I got some messages from guys I would actually consider dating.
