  • It all depends on the guy, if the guy doesn't want anything to do w/you because of your kids....its a no brainer....he isn't worth it!!

  • I can't date someone who cares in a negative way. this one guy kept asking me out to go get drinks andim like "its wednesday evening.. i have classes tomorrow and no sitter?" he didnt get that I have to plan ahead and stuff. I'm kind of seeing someone now who has a daughter so he gets it c:

  • I've been with my boyfriend for almost 3 years and he loves my children as if they were his own. My ex-husband is a good father and is very involved in our childrens lives and they love him very much, but my boyfriend has made such an impact on their life, that even given the good relationship they have with their real dad, they choose to call my boyfriend daddy too.

    I would never even consider dating someone who had a problem with me having children. We are a package deal. When I first started dating again, I made that very clear.
