where is a good place to meet/talk to guys that are ok with being a single teen mom

i am a 17-year-old with a 7 month old daughter i have been separated from her father for a while now but he is still in the picture helping with her. i however have been extremely lonely and i would love some company and i am mainly looking for someone who i could talk to and them not be totally repulsed by the fact i have a daughter. i would love to just be able to talk to someone and maybe go out as friends. just something. i live in north west Georgia and i would love if anyone had any ideas that could help me.
thank you

  • if you just want a friend i think you should stay away from guys. ...it's probably going to be a couple years before you find a MAN that will accept that you have a daughter. JMHO

  • Here in PA we have a group called Parents Without Partners. Everyone there has children so they would not mind you having a daughter. I would see if there is a chapter where you live. Anyone repulsed by your child isn't worthy of either one of you.

  • Don't go after guys. Just make some friends. You should get you rlife in order and then do what is best for you and your baby.
    I agree it will be a while befor eyou find a MAN not a little boy.
    It took me 4 years to meet a wonderful man who loves me and my son. It is worth the wait.

  • there really aren't many guys at all who are your age and will accept a child...at that age guys want to live and go out and have fun, not settle down...you could try a personal ad online...just be careful...you'll meet mr right eventually

  • it is an extremely bad idea to be bringing in MORE guys to ur babys life sometimes being a single mom means being lonely, making brutal sacrifices and at times being miserable, there is a reason that having a child outside of wedlock is less than ideal and being a teen just adds more challenges, unfortunately my dear you dont get to be a teen anymore, you're a single mom and your priorities need to be creating a stable environment for your child, getting your diploma, getting a job, going on to college so you can rise above the stigma single teen moms have and give your baby the best damn life you possibly can. the reality is at this time in their life no guy is going to be seriously interested you, not because of anything thats wrong with you but simply because your situation is extremely sticky and no guy under 30 has the capabilities to deal with whats on your plate and hitching up to a guy over thirty cont

  • will most likely move you to a total new stage in your life skipping over the stages that will help shape you into who you need to be, focus on building esteem in yourself that you dont need a man to feel whole, join a support group for single moms go out with your girlfriends to the park, your life is going to be hard for a long time, but you want to do right by your child so when he or she grows up he can be rpoud of the decisions you made its time to put your own needs aside and focus on your child, I am sorry your childhood was cuut short so quickly being a mom is hard no matter what stage of life or romantic situation youre in but you have the strength to do it and you NEED to do it ON UR OWN so you dont get stuck with some dead beat who you keep around because you think you "need" him i got faith in your girl dig deep and find teh courage to be a confident and independant single teen mom

  • I forgot to mention despite what people may lead you to believe very few situations are ideal to have a baby in, it happens and you make it work and its hard no matter what. I was 20 when i got pregnant and i was married to a stable man we both had stable jobs and on the outside it looked ideal, the pregnancy became high risk the baby was born with special needs and our marriage became strained we worked through it but it was extremely hard even in what some people would consider an ideal situation

  • i see nothing wrong with bringing GUY friends into a child's life- as long as they remain as friends. are you looking for something more or just friends? if its just friends, dont limit yourself to males. meet moms as well- with kids close to your DD's age. join a group on here close to your city or even make your own.

  • Sometimes the young guys are nicer about teen pregnancy than the older guys. Just get out and see what life has to offer. Take your child to the park. We used to go watch the guys play ball and flirt with them! lol

  • I agree with Shy ...except that i would be very picky about whatever guy you have as a friend. Often, guys want something more. Which is why i said to stay away from the guys if all you are looking for is a friend.
