Jodi Seidler shares tips, tidbits, prose and inspiration on what it’s like to be a (divorced) single parent in today’s world.

Nothing was worse than not getting asked to prom. And then you had to deal with the bar circuit and dating in your 20´s. Then, your 30´s roll around and you wonder why you are still single when you are finally secure with who you are. And then, you get married and have children, and your Prince Charming turns out not to be so charming after 10 years of marriage, so you depart with the pumpkin. And now you are in your 40´s, and back on the dating circuit, teenage child in tow.
