Don’t be too fixated on times and dates for doing things together.
If you can plan a getaway for the both of you where she can unwind without thinking of the kids (tough luck) or work, then you are well on your way of winning a single mother’s heart back to the world of romance and love.
She might not even be in the mood for a serious committed relationship, and most definitely don’t need someone calling them all the time or hanging around them constantly. This is a huge turn off for a single mother because she has too much to do. You will have to cancel countless dates because her child may be unwell or she can't get a babysitter for the day.
You should be compassionate enough to understand her situation.
You can easily be tempted into expressing your thoughts about her parenting skills. It is not your place to push your child-rearing wisdom down her throat.
You can make suggestions when she asks, but no more than that.
If you want to plan a special date or trip, let her know well in advance so that she can plan ahead.
