Single dads - extra devoted to their kids, extra responsible, extra "in tune". This meaning single dads who are actually raising their kids and not using the label while the kids are really in mom's custody 95% of the time. Any guy who does the primary raising or the actual shared custody arrangement - hats off to you!!! I have so much respect and admiration for you!!!! I would go out with a single dad before a single 'guy' any day. IF the guy was right for ME his kids would just be a BONUS.

think of a what?.....haha...just kidding....mind you i do have my own opinions on this subject obviously. I for one didnt think i could do it when i took custody of my troubled teen daughter , then had that be the excuse for my second wife to leave me.So i do think single dads have it tough.....just my opinion

Single dads are great and i think it shows just how much they acturly LOVE their kid's to
wan't to be around them all the time and have them in their live's, even if their realationship didn't work out between the parents.

I can not wait until this baby come's out mood swings are the worse but anyway's i think single dad's should get just as much credit as a single mom does because they BOTH work extreamely hard, to provide for their kid's.

don't think it's because you have a child or its because
you'r a single dad i find it hard aswell and my child is not
even, born yet and it's still hard just being an single pregnant
woman.

i hope the best turns out for you and
you'r little,one well 7year old.

I have no problem dating single dads, actually find it comforting, when moms ditch kids with dad says a lot for the father, raising children is hard work for either, but when girls involved I think it's tougher on the dads, think about it moms, teenage girls.
Absolutely nothing wrong with single dads.

Too many angry and hurt single parents, so was I, for about a week or two, took time to look at myself and realized as long as I'm mad at ex, he's still pulling my strings, why waste the energy. No support, oh well, had to work more, oh well, my daughter loves me, thats swell.
Have I met anybody, no, looking, not really, wasn't ready, move at my own speed, seen others rush into relationships, who gets hurt, the kids.
You have to be mentaly prepared for a new start, figure out what's most important, realize you may be blending families, set guidelines, compromise, be realistic.
Now I'm ready, as I'm a single mom a single father would be welcome, advantages, hopefully you both get it, it takes work on behalf of both.

single dads sexy?..damn i should try that angle......bring my daughter to places just so women will talk to me.....hmmmm.....i like that...awsome idea..lol...anyhow... single parents rock....male or female.
andthe ones that do it with no help from the ex or sperm donor or incubator have my kudos. keep up the hard and loving work.
I would do it all over again to have my daughter with me and exactly the way she is ..now.

Hello... fluffers!

seem's like to me that your child is the ONLY thing you think of and if you didnt think about your child or even care you would not try as hard as you are now to even see him wich seem's like you really, do care about him and wan't to see him every chance you get at least she could try to understand your point.

because some men would do anything and everything to see their child and would not care what they had to give up just so they, could be around their child to me a child is the most imporant person in anybody life and should ALWAYS come first before anybody else's need's.

i wish you the best of luck on your situration.

hunibubbles...


I will agree with you and your speaking the truth single dads need to know tho
that they are not alone and that there are some of us, single moms/women who
would not mind giveing them the chance and its just not because of their kids.

Maybe so who know's but it seems like the women on this thread are not afraid of a single dad and some are willing to, give a single dad an chance every thought about makeing a thread that is about, single mom/dad in La/Ky/FLA/etc...?

For Example:

Single mom seeking Single dad who lives in state of La between the ages of 18-50(w/e)
if, intrested write to me on an email and lets take it from there.

Single dad seeking Single mom who lives in (your state) between the ages of 18-40 (or w/e)
if, intrested write to me on an email and lets take it from there.

Ps, Only reply if your serious about meeting and not just playing head games!


Just An Example!

Right here, keep looking. There seems to be a lot of us who like and appreciate single dads.
Hiding the fact you have kids, not good, I used to do that and the person I was seeing said no thanks, not raising someone elses, should have told me from the beginning.
You don't have to introduce your kids to a casual relationship, but don't hide the fact if your a full time parent.

I BELIVE IT IS AWSOME FOR A MAN TO BE A SINGLE FATHER AND RAISE HIS KIDS, I AM A SINGLE MOTHER OF 3 BOYS AND ARE ALL BOY! SO I KNOW HOW IT IS, I WOULD RATHER DATE A MAN WITH KIDS BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT IT TAKES AND HOW HARD IT IS, PLUS BEING A FULL TIME JOB. I BELIVE YOU CAN SHARE A DEEPER MORE SOULFUL RELATIONSHIP SHARING THAT YOU BOTH HAVE KIDS TO RAISE, AND TO MAKE A LIFE FOR THEM ALL. I FING IT HARD TO GET RESPONSES HAVING 3 SONS, MOSTLY THEY WANT TO TALK ABOUT SEX AND ONE NITE STANDS.
SO GOD BLESS ALL THE SINGLE FATHERS OUT THERE... KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB...MY SONS DADS ARE NOT THERE FOR THEM.

i`m a single dad and find it very hard to even talk to ladies. once they see kids they think your taken. maybe it`s my shyness. sorry i know it`s off topic but i think it fits in there some where

Kudos to you and all the single dads and moms out there. We are making a difference in the world as we know it today. Keep you chin up and stand proud for what you believe in. Kids are a true blessing! Im a single parent and would not trade it. My girls are my life. Mrs. Right will come along someday. I have been waiting on Mr Right my whole life. Well at least the past 8 years. He will find me and she will find you!
