I don't know any good men, how can I raise my adopted son to be one?
I have never had what you would call "good male role models" in my life. My Mom and Dad divorced when I was 3 and I didn't see him again until I was almost 13 years old. Even after that, our relationship was strained, he worked 2 full time jobs and was going to school to get his RN license, so he was never around. Also, we lived 8 hours away, so we only saw him a week at Easter and a couple of weeks during summer. I even lived with him for a year when I was 13 and he was never home, and even when he was home he rarely talked to anyone except my step-mother. Every man I have ever dated has been a jerk, unemployed or cheated on me. I have a very low opinion of MOST men. I really don't know any men I would like to be role models for my son, who is 5. I am worried about him not having any male influence, but I am more worried about him becoming a douchbag like most other men I know. I haven't dated anyone in nearly 2 years because I am worried about him picking up bad habits from some jerk. I was thinking about Big Brothers/Big Sisters or something, but I am not sure he is old enough for that.
Even my Uncles are not role model material. My half brothers are great, but they both live in other states.
