it's so sad that the resulting search of "Has kids: No." is so tiny on here... I wonder why this site in particular attracts the single moms more than it does the single non-moms...

and i can understand that...

but it would be stupid to assume that only women with children access the internet... i'm just curious why the majority on this site are like that... what is the attraction here (or the deterrant for those without children?)

let me rephrase

1) we know that both single moms and single non-moms access the net
2) it is apparent via searches that the vast majority of the women on this site are single moms

i'm trying to figure out the correlation between this site in particular

why am i here? i wouldn't mind making a few friends (of which i'm not particular about whether or not they have children) but i also won't turn down a valid, worthy dating opportunity (though i don't date women with children)

It would be nice if "living at home" or "left the nest" were available options !

drama has never been a concern of mine when dating someone with a kid... there are other, valid reasons/points... i won't get into them as i generally get bashed (basically for having my own personal standards/requirements/opinions) though they are well thought out... what it boils down to is that dating single moms isn't for me... i've tried it.. several times.. and the same results happen.. not just with her but also with me mentally/emotionally... by actually saying i won't date a woman with children, i'm saving other women the pain of dealing with a relationship that ends up nowhere because of my views...

single non-moms have no different use... many are tired of the bar scene, the clubs, the typical pick-ups, etc and try online dating... and if you visit any other site you'll see there are quite a few... my point (again) was that the quantity on THIS site is larger than normal

there is a large amount of single moms on this site which is one of the reasons i use it, as a single dad i am more attracted to single moms since we have more in common. I think tex has the answer though.

Ahhhh! I have a simple answer for you darlin'. The deterrant for those without children is the simple fact that single women without kids can easily go out on the drop of a hat and meet people, where as for single moms cannot. Single moms still have to deal with the childrens social activities, such as soccer, and tball, and school, and if they are sick, most likely the moms aren't going out on a date. If the single moms have their priorities straight, their kids will come first. I personally prefer to date single fathers because they do understand how sometimes you have to cancel a date because something else is going on with the kiddos. And they also know how difficult it is to balance everything out. I remember right after my divorce, I didn't even try to date men for 5 years because I just didn't have the time or the energy, (nor the interest for that matter). So that is your answer, single women are out their LIVING their lives (going to social events, going out with their friends, going to the bars, etc,)instead of sitting in front of a computer for hours on end.
