What I would like to say to my younger single mum or dad counterparts is to believe in and have love for yourself as much as for your precious children, and to also be proud to be a single parent. You have made me feel welcome just because I can relate!
Im sorry, I shouldn't be scaring you with all this emotion! It is amazing the strength single parents have within them.
Men were longing for the comfort and coziness of pantyhose – attributes I’ll admit I missed back in my own more pantyhose-intensive days.
(If men said they longed to see their money disappear down the drain with a single snag, or enjoyed the challenge of trying to walk around in an undergarment that was, upon mid-day reflection, made for someone much, much shorter, that I’d understand. But they really thought of pantyhose as the perfect garment: warmer than socks, less bulky than long-underwear.
You serve as an inspiration for some and an enigma for others. I think this may turn more men off then it attracts. I am up late because I am trying to find additional income outlets.one can do but soo much online activities…and then I start looking up single mom outlets…and I stumbled on your site and have been wrapped in it for atleast 40 minutes…and most things give me instant ADD so this is a record. Reply Wow – 1st to somewhere above comment from ‘Ben Dover’ – well it is obvious what a narrow minded, judgmental person it takes to write such crap.
Either way, I just wanted to thank you for “putting yourself out there”. Obviously, we are going to find out if you have children, and I am not at all saying… In just 40 minutes reading your site made me feel I wasnt soo alone, I mean there are tons of “single parent” things online…but none nearly as entertaining and relate-able as yours! I’ll tell you the same thing I tell every man (always men by the way) who leaves comments like this on my site: I agree with you – children need fathers but when the father is absent by his own fruition that makes it quite difficult for us, now doesn’t it? I’m 26 and dating a 32 yr old mother of a 6 yr old. We are on are 4th date this week and this information has helped a lot. I should know I was married to one – one who beat and strangled me in front of our kids.
Good luck in the coming days and know this…….men are still out there. When men read this, a lot of us are very insecure about the title. this is one of the first things people are conditioned to expect. Reply I feel that (whether we like it or not) society needs structure and order. Your intelligence is about as good as the name you used. 2nd – YAY for this SITE – love sooo much how I stumbled across it , HOORAH! It’s not to say that I don’t miss intimacy because I do, but I was not getting that anyway. but I’m sure GOD has a better plan for my girl and I. Had another baby 2 years ago, lived with the other parent for about a year and now aged 47 – a single mum again.
“Our customers are primarily heterosexual, happily married men that you would never suspect of wearing anything unusual under their trousers,” says Steven Katz, managing partner of Ohio-based Comfilon (as in comfort nylon), the nation’s largest purveyor of male pantyhose.I feel that your blog is a way of saying: "hey, look at me! " Now, I don't want to be cruel, but you should know that your child will have less options than a lot of others. I'm not sure you are aware of the gravity of your situation. What…if a child has no Dad ,they can’t have a great life? My ex drank a large carton of juice at a sitting, and never did any shopping let alone contributing finacncially, so I gave up buying it. The hardest thing about being a single parent is feeling lonely and having low or what felt like no self-esteem.Many women want a child because they want something to love. Again, I hope I haven't sounded callous, but 99% of the population would agree with me. Maybe juice and crunchy peanut butter go well together LOLReply Thanks for having a site like this. Thankfully through time and reading positive books I have overcome the low self-esteem factor and learned to value myself. Need to finish the bit of work I have laying on my desk and then I am nose first in your blog for the next couple of hours!What’s appalling to me, a pantyhose baby, is that today’s young women feel the same way about pantyhose that I feel about girdles: Eww.“Sex and the City” made bare legs the billboard for a liberated libido. But just as women my mother’s age tsk-tsked the no-girdle look, bare legs in winter look utterly ridiculous to friends MY age. “Look at those winter white legs,” snipped my friend Nancy at Dunkin Donuts the other morning. She’d look so much better in a pair of nice black nylons.” That’s why I’m hoping that the pantyhose for men movement takes off.
