“I didn’t plan on being a single mom, but you have to deal with the cards you are dealt the best way you can.” ~Tichina Arnold
If you’re a single parent, chances are you’re a little pickier than your average girl when it comes to picking your Mr. Right.
I could go into a whole bunch of things you need to look for, but the truth is that there’s one major question every single mom should ask herself before she commits to a man.
Since we almost always have higher standards for our children than ourselves, this question is a really good litmus test for any relationship, really.
Are you ready for it?
Litmus Test: The Only Question You Need to Ask Yourself About Your Next Mr. Right
Next time you’re thinking about getting serious with a man, ask yourself this:
Is this guy someone I’d want my child to grow up and be like?
If you can’t answer with a resounding “YES!” – well, then you know what to do. Move on – find someone you can feel good about. Someone who you’d consider worthy of your child.
YOUR TURN! What do you think?
What would your answer be about your current guy? Do you think this test could work for you? Share your thoughts in the comments, below.
