Would you date a single mom? No. There was a point when I had no problem with it, but experience has taught me that I would rather remain alone than be with a woman that has a kid with another man.
Would you use a single mom for friends with benefits only? I don't do friend with benefits, but if I did, that is the only use I would have for them.
Are you willing to accept another mans kid (s) as your own? I tried that, and I was always treated as the outsider. It wasn't us as a family, instead it was her family, and me, the outsider. Unfortunately most mothers will never accept the man as the true father of the child, and I don't have the strength to lay my heart on the line to bond with child after child, in order to find a mother that will accept me as the real father.
Are single moms damaged goods? No. Lots of guys will still date single moms.
Single moms can still date just fine. There are plenty of guys that were just below your radar that would jump at the chance to date you, now that you are on an approachable level. There will be no shortage of guys willing to be a good father to another mans kid... the only problem is most of those guys aren't the kind of guys most women really want to date. If they were this guys would already be married.
The problem with being a single mom won't be as much of an issue once you get older, because it is almost impossible to find a woman that doesn't already have a kid that is still single. So men are forced to be less picky. Keep in mind most of them are not going to be interested in pretending to be your kids daddy. They are just going to be willing to suffer through the fact you have a kid. Until then, if you are looking for a relationship you may need to lower your standards a little. I am not saying to lower them to the point that you are dating drug dealers or anything, but the sweet class nerd you overlooked or even made fun of in high school may be the kind of guy you should be going after.1
