Deadbeat Dad You may know how crazy it can be to coordinate with an ex when it comes to visitation and finances.So you might be tempted to let it slide if a guy doesn’t see his kids often "because his ex is crazy" or he "wasn’t ready to be a dad." But don’t.For those who don’t know, that’s how the particular way I became a mother is often referred to. Neither of those applies to how I became a single mother. What were the chances of him coming along in the next couple of years? I’m proud of myself for going after what I wanted, for envisioning a future where I was a mother. It’s the path I chose to pursue for 38 years of my life. A phenomenon that means I have at least three close friends who despite their best efforts to find a more conventional family life have also either become a single mum or are seriously considering it.) By 38 I felt my back was against the wall. I still wake up occasionally and feel hurt and angry that I was forced to go it alone.

So it was either become a single mother or risk never becoming a mother at all. I was flogging a dead horse in the dating world, and I didn’t want to force fatherhood on any Tom, Dick or Harry that came my way. I realise that not all childless single women in their late thirties, faced with the end of their fertile years take the path I’ve taken. I’ve heard narrow-minded people call women who ‘choose’ single motherhood selfish, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
