You didn't say you have a child on your profile.
It's usually not the most attractive quality to men.

Sorry, he's extra fussy tonight.
Now, where were we? How old is he? Seven months.
Mm.
Whoa, I you're meant to breast feed 'til they're a year old.
Mm, yeah, he never latched properly and I missed my boobs being just mine so the bottle was easier.
Stayed full longer, less crying.
Don't report me to the parent police.
People will say I'm a bad mom because I don't want my nipples to look like dinner plates.
Hm, well, they're right.
What? Mm, you're bad.
Well.
- (LAUGHING) - Okay.
I will be bad just for you.
You have a strange man in your house.
(SOFTLY LAUGHING) And you ignore your baby.
You don't breast feed.
You're a bad mother.

(SOFT GENTLE MUSIC) Hi, how was the date last night? Good, really good, actually.
It started out a bit awkward, but then something shifted.
I'm seeing him again tonight.
[LINDA.]
That's great, how is Iris? You'll have to bring her in soon.
Soon.
I just worry about her with new people.
I know I'm being a bit paranoid, but I couldn't bear it if something happened.
(LAUGHING) I completely get it.
Yeah.
(SOFT GENTLE MUSIC) (COMPUTER BEEPS) [HANA VOICEOVER.]
You wouldn't believe how fast my heart was beating all night.
Well, my stories aren't that interesting.
I just, I feel like I go to work, I deal with clients, come back home, look after Iris, repeat.
[HANA VOICEOVER.]
It felt so good to tell him about you.
If I could stay home all day with her though, I would.
She's everything to me.
Being a mom is everything that I'd hoped it would be.
So Iris's dad, doesn't ever help out? Uh my ex wasn't ready to have kids and I kept miscarrying.
He couldn't take it anymore.
He said we had to stop and he left.
Not everybody's cut out for parenthood.
(PANICKED STRUGGLING) What about you, your parents? I never knew my father.
And my mother wasn't exactly the best mom ever, like, there were all sorts of guys around.
I remember the one day, I came home and she had just left.
Later I felt relief and angry.
But everybody's got their baggage, right? And I just want to be a parent, you know? I just want to be a good father.
You're gonna be a great father.
(SOFT GENTLE MUSIC) I mean I think it's great that you have it all.
You're a great mother and uh, you have a full-time career and and uh, you know, most, most women couldn't balance both.
(LAUGHING) - You cold? - [HANA.]
Yeah.
Here, put this on.
- [HANA.]
No, no, no.
- Put it on.
I have a better idea.

It feels like home.
I know.
I feel the same way.
(SLOW SUSPENSEFUL MUSIC) I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

Let's go to your place, we'll snuggle up, put Iris to bed.
Maybe we can arrange something after a few dates, you know, get a hotel? I just, I have to take it a bit slower.
I just have to get to know you better.
Understand? I understand that, you know, I'm good enough for a hotel, but not good enough to go to your home [HANA.]
No, that's not what it was at all, that's not what it was No, no, listen, I'm not gonna be insulted by a bitch like you, you understand me? You work all the time and you have a little baby at your house, that's disgusting.
