Are you treated differently by your friends since becoming a single mother?

No difference that I've really noticed - I've kept the same social circle I always had

Yep, my experience has been pretty much the same as all of the above, especially Jaded, I could really relate and also wear an engagement ring to avoid discrimination and guys sleazing onto me when I'm alone with my kids because I guess they think single mother = slut, and desperate for a man. The worst I've seen has been from lawyers (men and women) that seem to have those entrenched beliefs about single mothers... Just saying.
