In the 1992 video, Trump, who was 46 at the time, can be heard talking to a little girl, asking her if she’s going to go up an escalator. As Libby Nelson explained for Vox, Trump seems to only show his feelings about women based on their physical characteristics or sexuality: Trump is incapable of separating a woman’s value from her physical appearance.
After she says she is, Trump turns to the camera and says, "I am going to be dating her in 10 years. " It’s unclear how old the girl is, but she’s a child. He assumes that his intimate commentary on women’s bodies is always welcome, no matter who might be listening — as the leaked audio, in which Trump is having a conversation with an acquaintance in a professional setting, demonstrates.
Since hitting the bars is out, start by "dating" for friends, Baumgartner suggests.
Look for people who like to do the same things as you do. They offer a casual group setting and regularly scheduled meet-ups, and allow you to do something while you're getting to know the other person.
It's also important to consider the age and personality of your children.
Instead, focus on topics that are easy to discuss and help you learn about each other.
Though you may be excited about a new relationship, be extra cautious about sharing this information with your kids.
"In my coaching practice, I suggest that single moms do the inside work to get really clear about their wants, needs, values and beliefs and get in touch with their intuition," says Kerri Zane, single-mom lifestyle expert and author of It Takes All 5: A Single Mom's Guide to Finding the Real One.
Once you've decided that you're ready to date, it might feel impossible to find the time.
