Author Topic: Dating as a 31yr old Single dad..

This is my first attempt at trying to meet someone since me and the mother or my child split. My son is almost 3yrs old and the mother has been dating awhile already and the guy has been spending time with my son. The whole situation has been tough for me as me and her have split before but got back together and it's obvious this time she has moved on. The relationship was toxic and I caught her talking to other men multiple times. 

Trying to date at this point has proven difficult as my friendship circle isn't as big as it used to be and everyone I know is in a relationship it seems. I am excluded from couple activities and feel like the third wheel most of the time. I work full time as a bartender and take classes part time while raising my son 3.5 days a week. Going out seems difficult and dating apps I have tried seem to lead to dead ends when I mention I have a son or am not graduated from college at 31. 

I only have a year left of school but I fear I will only be more busy once I graduate trying to build my career. Part of me feels like just giving up and accepting that I may be single for a very long time. For now I can remain focused on my school and improving my health as I have been, though this lifestyle has been extremely lonely. Seeing my ex move on to a much happier life and to not be a part of it also makes it more difficult. Is there any hope i can actually find someone at this age as a single dad?
