Which do you think is easier?

Do you think it's easier for a single mom or dad to find someone?

I think it would be easier for a single dad to find someone because I think women are more open to the idea of helping raise someone elses children.

What are your thoughts?

 You can't generalize like that. It depends on the man and the woman. I have no interests in raising anyone else's children. But I am a step mom, lol.

I don't think there's a simple answer because situations and social/cultural things come into play as well.

For me, I was very specific when dating that I did not want to date a man with kids.  (the one and only guy I dated WITH kids is now my DH go figure.)  I didn't want to date men who had kids but weren't involved--which seemed like the majority of Dads.

I think it's EASIER for a guy to be a SF than for a woman to be a SM.  So in general, I think it's probably easier for a woman to remarry with kids if she has them full time than for a man in a similar situation to remarry.  But overall, I think that men with kids they don't see have it easiest of all.

I've never really thought about it.  I guess it woul depend on the individual person

I really don't know. It appears that is true, but personally, I would never have dated someone with children.

Most single dads I've known only have their kids one day a week so it was easier for them to go out and meet someone

eta the one single dad I knew that had full custody of his son had women falling at his feet just BC of that, they all thought he was so awesome and such a good guy to raise his son when his ex lost custody -__-
