Would you ever date a single dad?

A post in another group just has me curious. Could you ever date a man with children? Why or why not?

Basically the other post said if a single mom dates a man they just are looking for someone to play daddy and take care of their child(ren). So if a single man is dating does that mean he wants someone to play mommy?

dating is dating the only thing with having kids is you have to make sure your child comes first...i dont think that people with kids wether it be man or woman go out just looking for someone to play mom/dad. idk when dating i always look to see how they interact with MY kids wether they have kids or not...i also look to see if everyone is getting along and meshing well if not then it wont work...kids always got to come first.

 Yes, in one way or another at least. Being a single parent is a ton of work. And if you are a single parent and dating shouldn't that person fit into the whole family? If I was dating a single parent and was lucky enough to meet his kids I couldn't just act like they don't exist.

No, I wouldn't.  I don't want anymore kids and if things got serious it would just cause a lot of hurt for everyone involved.  Kids are a package deal whether it's a mother or father that is single, it's important that the other person is parent material.  At least, it should be unless they are only looking for a booty call.

If I were single, probably. It all depends my situation and his situation. If he has an ex that causes problems, I wouldn't want to be involved.
