This Mother’s Day, we worked with the folks at PopSugar to put out a call to nominate a single mom in their life who deserved a complete dating “MomOver.”
The entries were overwhelming, but we are excited to introduce our winner, Monica, who was nominated by her daughter Marisa.
We sat down with Marisa to learn a little more about her mom, and why she feels like Monica is ready to “Get Back Out There”
How would you describe your mom?
“My mom is one of the most outgoing and friendly people you will ever meet, and she will always go out of her way to help someone in need. She is a social butterfly who often puts others needs before her own.”
“She took care of my brother who was born with Cystic Fibrosis and was his best friend and nurse until he passed away at the age of 10. She did the same for my grandmother before she passed away. And she currently helps me with my daughter, who absolutely adores her, and is always there when we need her. She is always giving of herself and she always will be — it is who she is.”
Why is your mom a great catch?
“She’s the total package — she is beautiful, smart, kind, loving and of course, she always up to have a good time.”
Why did you nominate your mom for this contest?
“My mom has recently ended an unhealthy and abusive relationship and is finally taking time for herself. She is learning to love herself again. She wants to get back into the dating world, but I don’t think she is confident about how to do so.”
“I hope this MomOver will give her that boost of confidence and help her to see the beautiful person (inside and out) that the rest of us see when we look at her.”
What kind of person will complement your mom?
“My mom loves reading, exploring new restaurants and cuisines, going to the theater, museums and walking through the beautiful local parks. She loves traveling and spending time with family. A great match for her would be someone who enjoys similar things. She is comfortable in her life, but I would like her to have someone to enjoy her life with. A good fit for her would be someone who is balanced, thoughtful and secure in who they are.
But overall, I want her to find someone with whom she can create happy memories and enjoy life with. She deserves that happiness!”
Look for Monica on OurTime very soon.
And Congratulations! We can’t wait to help you “Get Back Out There.”
