Now, I can't just drop everything that I am doing to hang out with a man for hours at a time.

Remember those carefree evenings when you would go out on a date and you'd be able to let the night linger on forever — even if the date was mediocre — because you had nothing else to do?

Yeah, those are the paleolithic years of my dating life.

Children can take a lot out of you mentally as well as physically, so if there is ever a child-free moment in time, I typically prefer to spend it laying braless on my couch, binging on Netflix shows and drinking copious amounts of wine.

But let's be real: There's most likely some serious housework that needs to be done.

Being exclusive too soon."As a dating coach I encourage my clients to cast a wide net and date more than one person until talk of exclusivity arises," Cantarella says.

(No offense to those of you who do.)Meeting my kid is such a big deal that I have yet to date a guy that has met my kid!
