Single dad here, just wondering why it is hard for women to believe that a father would fight for his child, i fought cause i knew i was the better parent, wish my ex wasnt the way she is but hey thats life, just been getting the feeling that women dont like that a father fought for his child

Well I think it is great you fought for your child. It could be that some women are old fashioned and think a child should only be with their Mum. Not so in my view. My former husband has one of our children and it was ours sons choice to go with his dad. I don't have a problem with it (mind you I cried for 24 hours) as he is happy and that is what counts.

Really that someone special will come along when the time is right. Keep ya chin and positive thinking. I know it is hard and I should take my own advice but the more positive we are the bigger the chance of it happening.

Crad if they only want you for your money they are not worth having. I am sure you have not let your son down. You have him and are there for him are you not? All the money in the world does not make a good dad.

Im a fulltime single dad. I have a total of 4 children, but only one lives here fulltime (and its only half time as of March 7th). My kids are 8,4 and 8month old twins.

I find that women run when they hear the word "children". Sorta sucks, iv not been out with anyone in...well, iv been seperated since April of 2004, LOL...that long. (Divorced to).

Hi there, I'm a single father of a beautiful 10 yr old girl and a part time father of a 5 yr old girl and a 7 yr old boy. They are my life and soul. I live to be around them. I do agree that it's hard finding a woman when you're a single father. I've been trying for some time now and not having any luck. Of course I didn't post a pic on here b/c of my looks. I didn't want to scare anyone off. I don't think it's the looks that matters anyway, it's whats inside that matters. Happy Fathers Day to all you single dads.... keep it real.


Here's a little advice that I live by:

Anyone can be a dad, but it takes a real man to be a FATHER!!!!!!!!!!

If there's any single women around South Central Ky that loves kids email me you won't be disappointed but will have to understand that they are my life and they come first!!!!!!!!!!

It just ain't easy not matter what the circumstances are I think. Now both my kids are disabled. I don't know how the hell I'm going to get out for a date if some gal were to throw herself at me ;) Perhaps try the old invite them for spaghetti and a movie trick!

But... at least million other people had a worse day today, so I'll just just trudge along making the best of the circumstances.

Good luck and good going to the other great dads on here.

I am a full time single dad of an almost 5 year old bi-racial girl. it's tough, batteling exes, always getting refered to as a babysitter not a father, and fighting the expectation that society has that says that men should work and not see, or raise their own kids. it is soo worth it though, my mother always told me that when I grow up she hoped that I would have a kid that acted like I did when I was young, (kind of a curse) and now I do, and couldn't be happier. dating is wierd though, girls run when they find out you have a kid, or when you explain that you can't spend $75 on dinner for two more than once a month because your daughter who is 4, hit an unexpected growth spurt and is now wearing 6-7. either that or they think it's great and they try to take over the MOM role, which in my case is a no no. my daughter has a mom, whatever our differances are, she is not a bad mother, and even though mom and daughter only spend one or two days a week with eachother the bond is there. my last girlfriend went through both, alternatly, sometimes in the same day, being upset that I limited contact between my daughter and my girlfriend, and upset that there wasn't any alone time without my daughter being there. it's like you can't win either way. they get upset if you keep them apart, they get upset when the child is there. and if any of you out there want to try something fun, try dealing with a white girlfriend, and having a bi-racial kid. they always think that you ONLY like black women. not to mention the normal jelousy one girl has when you have a child by another. How many of you have heard, "you had a kid with her, why won't you have one with me? it's like some freaky procreation contest. it's all insane. why can't people just relax, enjoy the kids when they are there, enjoy adult time when they are gone, and realize the if we wanted to be with our exes, than we would have stayed with them. anyway thanx for the chance to rant.

It's funny that you asked that cause my best friend and I were discussing what she feels is the best man for me......a father.....I am more turned on to the fact that a man is a single father than any other man out there. It takes a lot to be a single parent as it is, and I wish that every child had fathers like the single dads here......Speaking from experience I have two fathers that won't even pick up the phone to check on their kids let alone take them for even a hot minute:( I respect any man who realized their kids are important...BRAVO BRAVO to all single dads you are some of the few:)

Hi everyone,
I to am a single mom of two beautiful children. I wouldn't change it for the world. They are my life and they are what makes my days so much brighter when I see their smiles or their wonderment(not sure if thats a word or not but anyways) when they learn something new. You will never know as much as love without kids than with them. Kids give so much even if their are babies like mine. And no, I dont know why single moms would run if you are a single dad as I can only see that as a plus. Like everyone says, single dads know what its like and they have been through it. Like someone else said though, its hard at certian ages to find someone special especially when were so young like me who is 21 and people who aer older like 30s,40 and so on. Anyways, just though I would say hi and I know how it feels.

I am a fulltime single Dad of 3 wonderful boys.... I have found that most women can not accept that fact or accept the thought of loving another womans child as her own.... Men are expected to do just that, but the times are changing... The children are the ones who suffer hte most in divorce and must be accepted for who they are and loved unconditionally.

Single parents kind of know where each other are coming from. The best relationship I ever had was with a single dad. He knew how to treat me with respect and was the greatest lover. Too bad distance got in the way of us furthering our relationship.

I am a full time single dad,living somewhere in OHIO.i have recently got temp.custody of my 9 year old boy.im 36 year old contractor.i love having my son ,but its very hard too find time to take care of buisness and take care and play with my son.
My marriage failed on april 1 of 2004 and i got custody on dec. 6th 2004 (temperarly).still going to court,but am very confident that ill win . thats whole other story!!!
Being a single dad is good but it gets lonely,thats why we are in places like this.
I have just meet someone in a chat room on my sprint phone and it is going very well. we just had our second meeting and im talking to her on the phone while im writing this,so i guess im doing good.

I prefer to date a single dad. I'm a single mom and single dads seem to be more accepting of my situation.
