It's okay to be pregnant and dating as long as you let the guy know up front. While it may be hard to tell him you're pregnant for fear of losing him you should still do it. After all, sooner or later you will have to let the cat out of the bag. You can only hide a pregnancy for so long, not to mention it's not fair to deceive someone about something so life changing.
Pregnant dating can also be a great way to feel normal, you know, like everybody else. A single pregnant woman deserves to enjoy life and a relationship if she so chooses. This is between her and the man not anyone else. There will always be those who don't approve, so the young lady might as well get ready to stand ground. Many times it's family and friends who try to help, but end up creating confusion.
It is very important for a single pregnant woman or teen to be very selective about whom she dates. He must be a really nice guy who respects her as a person and is supportive. Single pregnant women are highly emotional due to hormone changes, so a gentleman who is patient and caring will be a dream that comes true.
Take your time and don't rush into anything. This happens sometimes when a man leaves a woman because she is pregnant. He doesn't want anything to do with her or the baby. She feels rejected and goes into rebound mode and transfers her feelings from the loser to the new guy. This never works!
There needs to be honest upfront communication about the relationship and where it's going. That is, if it's going anywhere. It's fine if it's just a fling, but this needs to be understood by both parties. More than likely a single pregnant woman is looking for a commitment and wants a man who intends to be a father to her child. If this is the case she needs to tell it like it is, so that he knows what is expected of him.
Also, once the baby is born things will change dramatically. A lot of the time will be spent caring for the baby and this can be hard on a relationship. This is true of married couples as well. It pays to take classes or read up on what it's like right after a baby is born. In other words, be prepared!
Then, there is the biological father to consider who is he and where is he? Is he going to be a part of the child's life or is he out of the picture? Is he jealous and going to create drama? Is dating while pregnant just a way to make him jealous? Is this done in the hope that he will come to his senses and be a husband to you and a father to the baby?
It won't happen. Don't play those childish games. Once a child is involved in a person's life there needs to be a higher level of maturity. The most important thing of all is what is best for the baby don't ever lose sight of that. Pregnant dating can be rewarding in many ways, but no man should be more important than the baby. If he isn't mature enough to handle that then he needs to go!
Don't hang onto a relationship out of desperation or loneliness. Get busy with friends, family, education, career, hobbies, fitness or anything positive that is good for you and the baby. Stay positive and know that pregnancy isn't forever. Do the pregnant dating thing to spice up your life a bit and if a relationship develops okay, but if it doesn't that's okay too.
