No, they're not over, but not going to lie, it will probably be more difficult for you. But there are guys that will not mind this. You just have to find one. Just be honest right from the start when you meet someone so you don't waste your time.1
You're probably done. Five kids... ugh. No. You may find a few guys willing to pump & dump you, but is that what you really want? More importantly, is that what you want to show your kids?
Best thing you can do is just forget about dating and relationshits and concentrate on making sure your kids don't grow into criminalistic little shitheads.
Just a heads up: there are A LOT of guys who don't want to date single moms (it's all about the whole "she liked another guy enough to have kids with him" aspect). So if you have trouble, don't be surprised. BUT, on the other hand, some guys are totally fine with it. BUTTTTTT, ONLY get with a new guy if you are 1000000% done with the baby daddy. It is irresponsible and ho-ish to have feelings for the baby daddy & start a new relationship. Good luck!0
let it cool off then get back together1

Use this separation period as a time to reflect on yourself and make changes where need to be. It isn't a matter of if your love life opportunities are gone. It is a matter of figuring out what role you played in your relationship failing and how you can become a stronger, better person who doesn't feel the need to be in a relationship. This kind of freedom is empowering and wholesome. But dating right now will be nothing more than a rebound.0
