why are men reluctant to get involved with someone who has kidsPage 7 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
I didn't say you did. I was try to make a point by being absurd. That is why I stated in the sentence that you need modulation of your position. Future, you make it sound like if everyone (parents) were married the world would be great. Both you and I know that is just not so. I know your intelligent, I was simply trying to point out the weakness of your arguement. It wasn't meant as personal attack.

CB4block6 This thread is the less serious one, Mike, PPE started another single mom bashing thread about a week earlier. That is How should single mothers compensate one. So we're having a little more fun here. As a matter of fact he tried to get another one started today, but it was automaticly (sp) deleted.

Good Luck with your battle. And happy father's day.

^^^ If you're so book smart, why do you use such terrible grammar? Like, what you write is almost unreadable to me.

I'm honestly curious.

^^^ So far as I know, you have not claimed to be booksmart and talked about uneducated men, hun.

Footballmom, your posts are not witty or controversial enough that anyone really cares what you have to say. You are obviously looking for attention, so I am giving some to you right now in the hopes you'll go away. I see your post. You are there. You have an opinion. :) K?

I'm still waiting on an answer from "Ms. Booksmart" up there.

Little snippets like:


just cuz i'm book smart doesn't mean i have had the best judgment in men...

Look like they were written by a stupid 12 year old on myspace. Not a self-proclaimed intellectual.

I just thought it was interesting that you were trumping your own intellectual horn earlier, but I still write better than you with a hangover after being up for over 40 hours straight.

Like I said, I was just curious. I guess it irritates me when people proclaim their awesomeness with nothing backing it up.

My awesomeness is backed up by Ft. Knox.

I just want to speak on behalf of intelligent single parents; not all of our brains are on vacation.

Not every man is afraid of a woman with kids;

I met my husband when i was a single mother, and he respected me deeply and loved me dearly, and though i never expected him to take a fatherly role he ended up adopting my daughter and we had another baby together; we had a blissful happy life kids and all.

I get emotional when people talk about my poptarts LIKE THEY KNOW ME!

YOU don't KNOW me! You don't know what me and my poptarts have been through!

You'd better back up! Back up and don't talk about me or my poptarts! Don't make me call Forum Ninja to smack the taste out of your mouf.

was going to have a child by 30 regardless if I was in a relationship or not. I don't care about society norms or what society dictates that I should have been married.


Did you have a plan for how you were going to accomplish this if you weren't in a relationship?

This enquiring mind wants to know.....

... see, from a guy's POV, putting a time-frame on when you have to have kids is pretty bizarre.

Capt. modern science allows a woman not to be in a relationship. Jenn I am not saying that was something you'd do. However, biologically, child birth becomes more high risk after the age of 35. You have a higher chance of Down Syndrome, CP and other birth defects. So wanting to have a child before 30 seems logical to me.

Hillarous.

Jeeeeese FS what is enough money really!? Since I had my son, I had a nice home, new car, great miltary career. I got disabled, lost the new car...well didn't loose it they took it back. I was gifted a car by my parents thank god because that became my home for a while. Because I wasn't making the same income. I was financially secure when my son was conceived. But life somehow happened and I exhaused my savings and found myself on the streets within 6 months of my honorable discharge. Excuse me if the finanical secure arguement rings hallow. Because none of us know what events or cricumstances will wipe us out, and we have to start over.

I think you missed my point. No matter how well you plan, you can still end up in poverty. Also, sometimes you have those opps moments, where you weren't intentionally wanting to conceive, but were in the moment of passion and bingo. If you believe everyone should be married first that's fine. I am saying being married doesn't mean that both parents are going to be there, ie. my ex's nervous breakdown. (That was a very rough and painful year in my life when everything went into the toliet) Or having money when you start is going to prevent you form poverty. People loose jobs, get disabled, loose a loved one (and there income sometimes). It would be wonderful to put life in a neat little package and say if you do A, B, and C will follow. It just doesn't. Would it be nice for marriages to last, parents to love each other and stick together, and not need any social assistance sure. But even in the 40's and 50's that didn't happen. So we have to deal with what is, and not what should be.

hi why men do not committ there are several reasons
1 when they do committe and something does go wrong between the wife and husband he usualy ends up paying support

some men do not want another mans children thats his responsiblty .


and some ar ejust llooking for a one nite stand and alot of men have experiance that tells them not to committ because they can do whatever they want come and go .

All of the things I've stated were insuated by you here and other posts. Please don't insult me. You haven't responded to my recent posts without the standard financially secure, married arguement, please put the record in another groove.
