It is definitely tough being a single mother, especially at a young age. But you sound like your doing all positive thngs for you and your daughter. It's unfortunate that you have met "men" that would label a child..............which are the greatest gift from God. Keep your good and positive focus and pray. God listens. BTW guys like that are not what any baby needs to be around. Keep the faith

I'm a 22 year old mom who is working full time as a CMA and taking classes at night to get started on a second career path. I have a 2 year old daughter and she is such a huge blessing, but at the same time I find myself feeling so alone (which is really terrible to say since I have her unconditional love). I had to cut ties with her biological father a few months after she was born because he became abusive, and while I've gone on a few dates since then, I haven't had any luck finding a man who is open to committing to me. I have had countless guys label my daughter as "baggage", which certainly hasn't made me feel any better about my situation. I see so many friends my age getting engaged... it's discouraging. This isn't to say I'm ready to get married; I know for a fact I am not. But it would be nice find someone ready for a meaningful long-term relationship..

Hi Rachel,

I'm so sorry about the situation with your daughter's father. You are right, being a single mom is tough. Believe me, I understand that watching your friends get engaged can be discouraging. Thankfully, with age comes perspective, and unfortunately for many of the people who were getting engaged in their early twenties in my area, they are not currently with their original spouses. Sad but true. As a single mom myself, I do get what you are saying. I've yet to find Mr. Right. But I'm sure glad I didn't have to divorce Mr. Wrong. Divorce is a nightmare I never want to have. I'll keep you in my prayers! Enjoy that little daughter of yours!

Kate, I wish I could have given you at least 4 thumbs up.

The reality Rachel is that men don't want to make that final commitment today. Whether you have a child or not. They profess they do, but haven't met the right one yet. There are no guarantees in life, even the right one can become the wrong one after the marriage. It's about commitment when you choose to love someone. Commitment, not feelings. Feelings come and go depending on what's going on in your life. Love is a choice....you either make the commitment or not.
