I HATE dating..Ahh

So i am a single mom and I have two kids and my mom recently suggested that maybe I try a few dating sites, i wasnt really up for it but my curiosity got the best of me..especially after she paid for a subscription to eharmony.

So i've been searching..and looking and every guy that i like doesnt want someone with two kids. I' m like..well i appreciate your honesty.

Its so frustrating! Ahh. But maybe Im just not ready for the whole datin scene again. The last man i was with for over a year and hes the father of my youngest. Its been really hard and I am just ready to settle down ,get married and have a real family. No more BullCrap or anything..

is that too much to ask for? lol

  • Dating is like going to the dentist sometimes slow and painful other times short and sweet and most of the time non evasive. lol its so much fun

  • Well it isn't too much to ask for, but good luck in getting it! I am a single mom and it's rare to meet someone who wants to BEGIN a relationship with someone who already has children (young children) -- but to them I say GOOD RIDDANCE and it's their loss! I have raised the bar so high -- because you cant be too careful about who you bring into your kids lives -- that probably NO-ONE would pass the test!!

  • Be patient! :) I thought the same thing, that no one would want me with a young child. I was totally wrong, there are guys out there that will love your kids!! Good luck :)

  • When I finally quit looking someone came around when I had three small kids. He was great but I found out I don't like being married to anyone. Maybe if you stop looking your prince will arrive

  • no thats not to much to ask for but at the same time you have to date in order for all that to happen.

  • No, it's not too much to ask for, but you have to remember, meeting up with someone is already nerve wracking. Then to find out she has "baggage" makes it even more difficult. No I don't mean to downplay children as baggage, but it's a lot to handle. How will they fit into this ready made family? Will the children always come first and does he have a say so in the discipline of the children? It's hard. You have to find someone who's mature and ready to accommodate that scenario. patient. Define yourself and what makes you happy and the man will come along when you're least expecting it. Good luck! :)

  • I have actually found an incrediable man. He's unbeleiveably perfect for me. He has his own children and we have alot of the same values and stuff. We've been talking for over a week almost all day and we're meeting up easter weekend. I am really excited. We're both exteremly hopeful this could be it :)
