I began to look forward to Free Wednesdays like many people look forward to the weekends.
I was also gifted time and support by other women from my cohort, Janet and Dior, both of whom were married to the kind of men my daughter called “Uncle.”On a Wednesday soon after I began my friendship with Tamika, I had a place to go: my first date with a woman.
Tamika introduced me to a friend of hers who lived in Louisiana but had managed to date around our friend group in Atlanta.
She charmed me in the same restaurants she took all her Atlanta dates while Tamika kept my daughter.
When she wasn’t available, I paid a trusted staff member from my daughter’s daycare, a child-development major vetted by parents of her classmates.

The rest of my “village” was made up of fellow grad students and their friends, many of whom doubled as babysitters and companions to nightclubs, house parties, and other social events.
This network of people was crucial when my friends and family began to encourage me to “get back out there.” I met a nice-enough guy on a dating website, whom my daughter — who was just learning to speak and easily mixing up the “n” and the “d” sounds — called “Dick.” When we’d go on dates, my cousin would watch my daughter, whom she treated like a granddaughter.
Rebounds, after all, are healthiest when you have a chorus reminding you that relief can sometimes feel like love.
