We live in a new age, where there are more and more single, pregnant mothers. Is it socially acceptable to date while you are pregnant in this world where the ‘rules’ are constantly changing? Are there men out there who are actually interested in dating pregnant women?
The reality is YES!! If you are newly pregnant, and aren’t showing yet, it is most important to be honest with a potential date about your pregnancy. If you are showing, then chances are if the man wants to date you, he is accepting of you and the fact that you are pregnant. He may have some questions about the dad, but chances are if he is interested in dating you than he is not interested in judging you. And, you should ignore the judgments of other people in your life who may not be supportive of your endeavors to find love while you are pregnant.
Pregnancy changes many things in life. The one thing it doesn’t change is who you are. Nowadays, there are more and more open minded men who will be able to look past your pregnancy and be romantically interested in YOU for YOU.
The real hurdles lie in the fact that dating someone while you are pregnant with another man’s baby can be complicated for the budding relationship. You are also in a place in your life where you will be making many changes, and may find that your tastes and interests in men now, are much different than they were before you had a baby.
The reality is that more and more single and pregnant women today are putting themselves out there in the world of dating. As long as you aren’t looking for a father for your baby – and are instead looking to add fulfillment and happiness to your own life, you shouldn’t feel ashamed by dating. Be honest with your date, and realize that pregnant or otherwise, life goes on. Dating while pregnant may be a new concept – but it certainly isn’t one that you should automatically shut out.
