Women who will not date single man with kids....

If you are or were to become a single mother, then would you remain single until your kids are adults? 

I am seeing alot of women on here say they would never date a man who has children. So I am curious to know if those same women if they are single do not even attempt to date, or if those mothers were to become single, they wouldn't date?

I would still date. Just a man with no children. Luckily I'm married so I won't ever have to be in this situation.

I think I would go the fwb route, no real dating while my kids are still living with me. Definitely no cohabitation.

 When I was single..............I would not date men with children. At all...ever.

I probably wouldn't date anyone if I were to suddenly be single......until my son was older.

I told my self after 5 hellious years with ex and his son I wouldn't date a guy with kids and my SO who also had dated girls with kids said the same. I thought no one would want to date me or be with me having kids but I found SO and he was great with them and we fell in love and he fell for my boys too. He has no kids but we are expecting a baby of our own in May and that is a dream come true for him and I.am very happy! So I got lucky!!

May not be fair but I wouldn't date a man with kids. If that meant I remained single so be it. I had requirements the first time around the dating pond.. I would have requirements the second.

I just have to say that try are missing out on some wonderful men! Most ofte single men I know are wonderful, hard working, supportive fathers who give anything for their woman ad their children. Plus the already have experience with being A dad so there isn't really that shock factor when a man becomes a father for the first time. I married a man who was a single father we are now expecting his forth child my third. He is the best and most wonderful man I've ever met.

I would date whenever I found the right man but I would never be upset if a man didn't want to date me because I have children.

I have no issue dating a man with kids. I would rather a date a man.with kids, they get it. Where as the men I've talked to who are childless just don't get it and get mad over the silliest things

I won't date a man with kids because I do not want the baby mama drama.

It is not a double standard for me. I only have one child who's fahter's rights have been terminated. So there is and never will be drama on my end.

I expect the same from anyone I date.

I would love to find a compatible single dad. Unfortunately at 48 with a 5 year old, most guys near my age are way past the Kindergarten stage and more concerned with high school and college issues, if not grandchildren, LOL.
