Feeling judged by my friends when dating

by Angie
(Chicago, Il)

I am having a hard time discussing my dating triumphs and woes with my mostly married friends. I feel like a lot of them judge me pretty harshly. I have gone on a few dates since my divorce but for the last several months have been seeing one man pretty seriously. He makes me happier then I have been in a long time and most of my friends are happy for me but a few of them judge me and him pretty harshly for things like not involving our kids(I've never met his, he's met mine briefly), for not planning our future together or knowing where we are going(it's been 5 months) etc... It's been really rough to not get support from my friends an I am wondering if other single moms go through this?

I just finished reading 3 of your sections, particularly your story about raising a teen and connecting with God and became very inspired!! I needed to know that as a single mom I'm not alone...
