 I've recently gotten back into the dating scene after my divorce a year ago and I've had a few mediocre dates. A friend of mine is now trying to hook me up with this dad friend of hers, but IDK. I have a kid of my own so I'd feel weird turning him down on the basis that he's a single parent, but at the same time, IDK if I'm ready for a guy with a kid?

I'm going to say No but I'm going off how I would be if I did not have kids or was not married. I would not want to have that responsibility. Now if years down the road me & dh divorced which I don't see happening, circumstances may be different and I may consider it depending on the childs age etc

I had to vote yes because, prior to dating and marrying my now husband, I dated a single dad and he was really awesome. The only thing about that was that he was a lot older than I and I went to high school with his oldest daughter who was actually a year ahead of me, lol.

I would, even if I did not have kids myself. I have no problem with it.

I used to say hell no all the time. I don't need the baby mama drama or little brats being disrespectful.

But you never know. When I met my boyfriend, he had his 3 girls 80% of the time. There was no baby mama drama (it's very minimal and they don't let it get out of hand) and his 3 girls are the most respectable fun girls I have ever met. He combs their hair, he makes main dishes for school functions (even turkey), he spends time with them and spoils them as well as me and my dd.

You never know unless you at least meet him.

I would. I think it's silly expecting a guy to date you as a single mom, but you wouldn't date a single dad? Kinda hypocritical don't you think?

Im marrying a single dad in a few months. I always swore No single parents.. didnt want to deal with the step drama. but Ive never been happier than I am with him and his little girl.


And if hes any kind of a dad, youll date him a bit before you meet the kid, so if it flops. so be it
