I’m hot but men won’t date me because I’m a single mum – they send me d**k pics then ghost me as I'm too much effort01/11/2021
THERE'S no denying that online dating can be a total minefield – but when you're a single mum, it can feel downright impossible at times.
One person who knows a little something about this is mum-of-two Amanda Jayne.
The social media star, 32, has gained over 53,000 followers on TikTok for her hilarious videos about how difficult it can be to date as a single parent.
In one viral video, Amanda shared the most common reactions she gets from blokes after telling them she's got two sons.
She captioned the clip: "When you try dating as a mum in your 30s."
Overall, the most popular response Amanda gets is: "Sorry, I think we want different things."
But while this might sound like a cop-out, at least this generic reply is better than the lads who "ghosted" Amanda and were never to be heard from again.
And if that wasn't bad enough, the mum says some of the guys she matches with on dating apps simply respond with a "d**k pic".
"This is life right now in the 30s dating pool #sendhelp," Amanda told her 53,000 followers.
In another hilarious clip, Amanda took part in the "I don't understand" dance challenge in relation to her experience of being ghosted.
Taking the rejection on the chin, Amanda joked: "When he makes the first move and then ghosts you…"
Needless to say, the video struck a chord with other frustrated singletons.
"Oh I understand," one replied.
Another added: "I don't understand why anyone ghosts anyone ever!"
What does it mean when someone ‘ghosts’ you?
Ghosting is an expression used in dating terms and it's when someone suddenly cuts all ties and communication with the person they've been seeing.
The theory behind ghosting is that the person who is being ignored will just 'get the hint' and realise their partner is not interested in dating anymore so the subject should be left.
Anyone can be a ghoster, it's not specific to either gender, but people sometimes find the behaviour is related to a person's maturity and communication skills.
Many believe that ghosting is actually better for the person they're ignoring because they aren't hurting their feelings by telling them they don't want to date anymore.
But often ghosting just leaves the ghostee feeling confused and upset about the subject.
In lockdown, the mum-of-two filmed a video to show blokes "what they're missing" out on.
Wearing a tight vest and tracksuits, the social media smiled at the camera as Justin Bieber's Eenie Meenie played in the background.
As Amanda asks if her followers have ever dated a single mum, Justin sings "let me show you what you're missing".
The music then cuts out dramatically and is replaced with the sound of kids yelling for their mum from the other room.
For more relationship stories, this woman was banned from family gathering after her nan secretly discovered her OnlyFans account & people think it’s hysterical.
And this bloke said his date is ‘bigger than expected’ in cruel text meant for mate – but is sticking around as family ‘is loaded’.
Plus this woman shared her epic Tinder fail after date made her sit through meal with his MUM & was questioned about her ‘intentions’.
