I like intriguing photos.

Unfortunately and responsibly, I must agree with the aforementioned position that photos of children shouldn't be posted, on _dating_ sites. For serious reasons, it's dangerous and irresponsible. (To me, the absurdity has less to do with what a prospective partner my think and heavily more to do with disgusting ***holes on the site who might target the woman and her children. It is tough enough to be a parent in the dating world. If somebody doesn't want to partner with somebody who's raising children, stuff them and so what -- that goes for me, too, since I'm not inclined to date men with young, minor children.)

Eternityboresme I liked your posts and agreed with all of them. Who was the a$$hole you were quoting in post 238 and 239? I tried to find those guys posts and didn't see them guess I missed them when I was looking. Single dad 1 daughter here.

To the OP I have had as many or more difficulties as any woman with kids to be honest. Not just a single dad but a custodial one as well. Spent several years with sole custody. So I know what single mothers go through and more. Been turned down by some due to being a full time father and not the weekend warrior. I would often find it ironic that a single mom would turn down a single dad but would complain about a completely single man turning them down. Although some single moms actually would actively seek a guy like me because I've been and am currently there. I think most guys who are single as in never had children and never been married don't have the experience to know the true issues of dating a woman with kids. I love kids and most kids love me. So when breaking up due to mom and me not meshing for one reason or another it creates extra issues. So I learned early on to avoid meeting children till things are more serious.

This and many other issues like the fact that I never intend on getting married have created problems. I feel like if she loves me she can love me without a piece of paper. If I can love her without it she can love me without it. So many of us have it hard. Just keep trying. :)

Yes - Is the answer.

Having to deal with someone else's kids is annoying, makes dating much more difficult.
