I have struggled with this myself...seems as though as soon as a man finds out I have children- he runs the other way. Yes, I am a package deal, and yes I will be patient in waiting for the right man- it can just be disheartening
It depends. Some guys care and some guys don't but after awhile as age progresses people start running out of choices. Don't too much worry about it. If a guy really likes you it won't matter. I have two kids and never had a problem dating.
I believe taht it really doesnt matter because I raised my son on my own and cried many a night about the same thing but when all is said life is too short to think life will come to an end because of this. Now my boy is 17 and I can begin my life for me now, DJ will always be my baby but it is time to think about me now! am I right?
I also know the pain.the loss of the father,the family.for me and my children.Is so hard sometimes to be single mom.I wish my baby have the father,and we have the home and the family.The real father do not want to have "commitment&responsibility"and dating is so hard for the men do not want to love some one else baby.The kids they suffer so much& we think we have it hard.they also share our pain.
niceguylooking write: I will not date a woman that hasn't had kids.
I used to think that was important, because it would denote whether they get along well with kids. But I discovered sometimes there are reasons men/woman do not have kids through no fault of their own, but the cards life has dealt them. They still make superb Aunts/Uncles, and kids love them. That is what is most important...how well do they relate to kids of ALL ages. The proof for the answer is in how well liked and respected they are by the kids they interact with.
