Being a Mum isn’t all you are

One of the things that’s really hit me over the last few years is how easily it is to become “just a Mum”. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a Mum and wouldn’t change it for the world! But, just because I’ve had children, that doesn’t mean that I have to lose all sense of who I am and what it is that I want out of life. In fact, being a Mum makes it even more important to make time for me.

This all got me thinking about how things are going to pan out for single parents as their kids get older. I suppose if you have a partner, then you at least have one adult in your life who you will be able to enjoy things with once the kids are leading their own lives. But, if you’re a single parent and you’ve found that you have drifted away from your old life whilst bringing up the kids, then I guess that you could quickly find yourself pretty lonely!

So, when the kids are starting to make their own way in life, it’s time to start thinking about what you want for yourself. Yes, you’re still a Mum, but you have so much more time to start enjoying yourself again.

If you fancy having a little fun with a younger man, then you could even think about cougar datingJust in case you’re not familiar with the term “cougar dating” – it means an older woman dating a younger man. It’s becoming increasingly common these days with women who are starting to enjoy their freedom as their kids have grown up, and young men who enjoy spending time with an experienced lady.

Where to find dates

So, if you’ve made the decision that cougar dating might be for you, your next step is to find a man who wants the same thing as you. These days, the best way to meet somebody is through a website such as My Cougar Datesthis is a site set up specifically aimed at pairing up young men with older women.

The beauty of sites like this is that you know immediately that everybody registered wants the same thing as you. This cuts out so much time and heart ache! Let’s face it, you don’t want to be approaching younger men in a bar in the hope that they might just fancy dating a cougar.

Using a specialised website means that you save time and money all round. And, the best bit is that you often get to see a photo of the person on the other end of the internet. Just beware that not everyone is as up to date with their photos as they should be!


So, if you fancy getting out there and meeting a younger man for some fun and no-strings good times, then get yourself signed up! You might just have the best night of your life. Making time for you is so important, so what’s stopping you?
