Men, how many of you would date a pregnant woman?? Why or why not?Page 2 of 2    (1, 2)
Absolutely no way no how would I even consider dating a woman who is pregnant. I get that people have sex, but I don't need an obvious reminder that she may have had unprotected sex with somebody else recently. 

Baby daddy drama is a strong possibility here. No thanks!

OP...how come these guys don't stick around after knocking you up? I'm puzzled...

I wouldn't because if I ever did decide to have a child I would want it to be at least HALF mine.

What can I say ?

I'm an old fashioned fuddy duddy

The problem isn't so much about the woman, it's about the situation. There are societal norms at play, plus a lot of guys fear the responsibility that will come with dealing with a pregnant woman, especially one who the kid isn't theirs. It's a bit of a tricky situation. There are women in those cases looking for support, both financially and emotionally and that is a concern for a lot of guys. I can say for honesty that I pass on those profiles myself, but the reason is that it invites way too much drama. I wish you luck though!!

Msg 25: I would it would not bother me at all.


You should have no problem finding a single mother or soon-to-be single mother then, if it doesn't bother you-especially if you don't have kids of your own to worry about and pay for. I wouldn't be as quick to say it's not a bother until you try it and see what involved in parenting-and with a kid that's not your own. Would it still not be a bother if the kid's father is still in the picture or returns into the picture to play the daddy role?

I would not date a pregnant woman either.

It would feel like dating someone who just got out of a break up. They just aren't ready to date...they need to heal, and learn to be happy by themselves, before jumping into things with someone else to fill the void.

Hell no. A woman who is pregnant clearly has other priorities.

I've been faced with the situation, and had to turn it down. I just could not fathom dating someone, who is still pregnant.

Too many things would be crossing my mind.

I.E Why is she focusing on dating, vs being there for her newborn child (who essentially, will require her undivided attention, in its formative years)? Also, why would she trust any guy who'd be down for this type of an arrangement? Any guy in their right minds, would run.

Her ex knocked her up and left her, or did she ditch him? Either or, would likely result in her looking for an immediate father figure to replace them. Otherwise, she'd be focusing on her child, and ensuring she stood on stable ground, before venturing to find love.

I'd want nothing to do with the situation. Knowing myself, I'd get attached to the child, and that's an immense amount of pressure on me, for someone I've likely got little time to get to ensure is "the one". Not the type of mistake I want to make. Especially so, if a child is involved.

Sorry for sounding like a jerk, but I'm no hero. Save yourself.

HELL NO!!!

I would not do. I could not date a woman knowing that some dude was already squirting and splashing all up in her. The very fact that another man's child is growing inside her disgusts me alone. On dating a pregnant woman, I would emphatically decline. The only way I would be involved with a pregnant woman is if I'm the father. That's it!
