How many guys do u know that have kids but they don't spend time with them cause they are "too busy"? This ticks me off!! I know several wish they would grow up and be mature since they have kids. To me its a turnoff!! If you don't want to be a parent don't have kids its really simple.

  • Hmm, I agree it's a turn-off. Luckily I don't know any of these fools. I understand if they are "too busy" because they are work-aholics and their work really does rake in the income.. but again I don't know any of these guys and honestly these types of guys would be turned-off by me. I'm too responsible disciplined and honest about what I observe in other people's lives for them to probably like me.

  • My Dh work over 60 hrs a week (he manages a subway so when the teeny's decide they don't want to work he gets stuck) and goes to school full time. While he may not be able to maintain a 4.0 he does have a b- average. Which considering there are days where he works from 7 am until 11 pm I think it' great. yet my dh still finds the time to spend time with our kids. Maybe only for a few minutes each day or a couple days a week but he's still here.

  • How sad. Children will not be little forever and these dads are really missing something great by either working too much or not wanting to be "bothered" with putting the child's needs over their own.

  • You'd think it should be that simple - and I don't buy the "don't have time" excuse. I worked, went to school, AND spent time with my kids. Never missed a function, never failed to bake cookies for their class or group or whatever - never missed a football game, parade or any event that they participated in- never once told them "Come back later". If you can't give them quantity - you can give them quality.
