If you have ever had the "pleasure" of being single as an adult, I'm sure you have seen an online dating profile. There can be a few problems with online dating, like the fact that many people don't feel the need to be completely honest. How does this differ from face to face dating you might ask? Well, that is a good question that I don't really have an answer to.
Honesty is a tricky quality to find these days, especially if someone isn't completely happy with who they are. We all want to put the best versions of ourselves out there, but if we aren't honestt then how can we expect to find a real relationship? While I may not be ready to put my picture on a dating site just yet, I think it would be great if it was honest and a bit blunt just like me.
So, if a single mom of 2 young kids (me for example) were to write an honest online dating profile, it might look something like this:
"Old" if you ask my kids, "just past my prime" if you ask my parents, and "more than 30, but less than 40...I stopped counting" if you ask me
Well, I stopped fitting into my jeans so now I only wear leggings. Does that qualify as "fit" or "full figured?"
Going to the bathroom alone, watching the DVR after the kids go to bed, drinking a glass of wine after the kids go to bed, taking a quiet shower after the kids go to bed...see a pattern?
Sitting in a quiet restaurant and getting to actually eat my dinner without having to 1. break up a fight, 2. force feed a child, 3. pick up food off of the floor, 4. apologize to the waiter, or 5. share my meal with everyone at the table.

I am a blogger and publisher of 2 websites, as well as a mom of 2 awesome kids. If you think I just sit around at home and writing about my feelings on the computer all day, do us both a favor and move to the next profile. I work hard at everything I do and hope to find someone who is equally as dedicated.
