When you meet a guy and you go out on a few dates, when do you tell him you have a child? Like first date or tenth date?

I never dated, but I would say the first.

Right away. There's no sense wasting anyone's time.

I let them know up front so that they can choose whether or not to proceed. Some men do not want to deal with that.

Before first date.  I'd never set anything up with anyone who didn't know beforehand that I'm a mother.  I wouldn't want someone to lie about being ok with dating a single mom just to get in my pants or just because they liked me.  You have to do right by your kid(s).

Definitly before the first date IMO.  That's something that should be shared during those first few emails or phone conversations.  That way both of you don't waste your time on a date if he does not want to be involved with a woman who has a child.

You tell him before the date. Otherwise it kind of feels like entrapment. At least, that is how I felt when I would agree to a date with a man, and then find out of said date that he had a kid. The whole night was a waste.
