Why do women not like dating fulltime single fathers?Page 14 of 14    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14)

I guess what I'm saying, is if you aren't getting dates, I'm not sure you should ASSUME it's because you are a custodial father.


As a non-father, period, I can testify to that.

I personally know women who have children and won't date a man who has children. But they want a man to accept the fact they have kids......I know doesn't make sense. But ideally I want to date a man who has children, because I do ad he would be understanding of my life.

Oh I would give anything to meet you as I think single dads are more understanding towards us single mums as we are both struggling in life and yes our priorities are our children. I would date you tomorrow as you sound fab. Just a pity we live at the opposite end of the planet. Never mind you will find someone who will be looking for a handsome caring father

My experience is because women my age have raised their children and want to be free to come and go travel ,spontaneity ,you can't have that with someone with kids. My youngest will be 13 & 15 January and February I've been raising them alone for over 3 years . Between working ,cleaning,cooking ,dad taxi ,home improvement and repairs.... it's hard to juggle a relationship. So I fully understand why a lot of women choose not to date single dad's.

My experience has been that children are too dramatic with single fathers. I have no time for the drama anymore with single fathers children. There was plenty of drama with my own. I'm done dating fathers with children still at home.

You are right.
Let's leave gender out of this.

A and B.

B is healthy, private health insurance, non smoker, drug and child free, no criminal record, has a good job, stable home, car and drivers licence, lots of friends, lots of hobbies, can drop everything at a moment's notice to do things. No ties, no baggage and completely self sufficient.
B can be male or female.


A, who also can be male or female has one or more of these:
Dependent children
No job
Insufficient money to support themselves
Debt
No residency in the country
Going through a messy breakup
Illness
No health insurance
No car nor drivers licence
Unstable home
Smoker
Drug user
Criminal record
Commitments that limit free time




You can see why A likes B and why B is not at all interested in A.

Simple

I think what bothers a lot of men is that they are B, but still get treated as if they are A. Seriously, who many times do you actually meet someone like A in real life?

Like many people, I have most of your B list, but have still been treated like I'm an indigent loser with no prospects. Go figure.

If it was that simple, "B" men would be more popular.

B women are not.


Sadly I have met a lot of A men from this site.
I know a B woman who right now is dating a man with 10 of the A characteristics.

I think single dads who are dating need to expand their pool of potential dates. You'd be surprised who would date you if you opened your mind to the many choices out here.

I can't speak for all women, but me personally I find it very attractive to see a man taking care of his kids. Alot of females may be intimated a little bit? because they know they would have to share a good bit of you're attention with child. Kudos to you though, I think it's awesome that you are taking care of your kids!

Why do women not like dating fulltime single fathers? perhaps because we are considered losers often with low income baggage and ex issues?

I get the same feeling about a few ladies I talk with.... I lost my wife from medical issues...I never wanted to be a single parent , its hard as hell. It doesn't matter why you have fulltime custody of your children as long as your sure the children are better off because of it. And for crazy lady , You are definitely right about the need for immediate counseling and its probably a good thing your children are NOT with you full time.

I think it had to do more with priorities I always put my kids first, me second health and work, women after that which they seem to resent. How dare I not make a woman and sex not a top priority. :P

Dont make parenting an excuse for not having dates, use being single father as an advantage. You get to see women naturally school trips, class exhibits, open houses etc... great ways to meet single mothers, and you have something common to talk about already there. That blue coat picture in my profile was my reaction after my daughter drag me away from talking with a single mother are Medieval times school trip. Kids might not like it but it is effective they are not drunk, see you care about your kids and are an active part in their lives.
