Dating is hard. It's even harder when you are doing it after a divorce. Add on the fact that you have kids now, well, it may seem easier to broker peace in the Middle East than finding Mr. Right ... again. That's what a couple of my single mom friends are going through.
They have been out of the dating game for a 7 plus years and boy has the love landscape changed. "Guys don't want to pay for dinner unless they know you are going to put out," lamented one pal. "I'm l like seriously?! You won't pay the Olive Garden?" Other dating disappointments? Guys who are too into their cars,oddly obsessed with Twilight, and one who actually insisted on knowing her bra size the first time they met. And the list goes on and on.
Here are five more ridiculous guys you will undoubtedly run into once you start playing the field.

This guy will swear up and down he loves kids and is practically a dad already. The reason? He sometimes hangs with his brother's or friend's kids. Don't be fooled. He has no idea what he's talking about. Does he get up every morning at 5 a.m.? Has he ever cleaned up projectile vomit or diarrhea? As soon as he gets a dose of your reality, he may pull a Usain Bolt and flee.
