I drank champagne while I let Lucy be passed around between friends.

Both of us danced to the DJ, me holding her tiny hand to support her wobbly standing.

Finally, there’s the fact that I don’t want to just “date.” I want to find a partner who would also be excited about playing the role of Lucy’s father.

So many times in Lucy’s first year, I found myself looking around and wishing there was else going through this with me.

After all, Jake had seen me come into his coffee shop ever since the first few "WTF" days of new motherhood.

He’d seen me in stained tank tops and unwashed hair, and had flirted with me anyway.

I wanted someone to witness when she was being particularly adorable: when she’d laugh the minute I started reading her favourite book, or the week when, just beginning to crawl, she’d arch her body up into a perfect miniature downward dog.It was clear after our beer that we wouldn’t be anything more than friends, but it was still gratifying. Lucy had been invited, her name engraved alongside mine on the cream-coloured invitation.I wore her in a baby carrier over a bodycon DVF dress with five-inch heels.I hadn’t been trying to impress him, I’d just been enjoying the fact that I could enjoy a glass of champagne with Lucy in my arms.

And that’s the thing I’m learning: Dating as a single mum is logistically complicated, but emotionally, it’s pretty straightforward.I had been , as a mum and a single woman and whatever else I was at that moment. You just have to be yourself, because you don’t have the time or emotional capacity to hide who you are.

Plus, there was the fact that I still feel awkward in my new role as a mum.
