What would you think if you met an amazing young woman, who had her head on straight and her life in order, her education and her work, but she told you her last relationship was 7 years long and she was faithful and had a child with this man, but then he cheated on her and left her (romantically, but still raises his child).
Would you run the other way, knowing that this woman is not looking for a random hookup but a relationship of substance? If you knew that she had trust issues and would always be in contact with this other man because of their child.
Would you even bother? This question is for mature men.. about 25+ years.

It really depends. Being a single parent doesn't bother me, as my son lives with me as well. Having come out of a long relationship wouldn't bother me either, as I was married for almost 10 years.
The trust issue would be my concern. I have plenty of bad memories when it comes to heartbreaks, but I'd never allow my past relationship "demons" to get in the way of what could be amazing with someone new. They didn't hurt me, & they deserve the benefit of the doubt starting out.
Overall, I get you're hurt, worried, & you have responsibilities to your child (believe me, I know). But don't think some guys wouldn't be interested. Just be very picky on who you choose to give a chance. It's a package deal now. If someone has a problem with it, it just means they're not for you. Take your time.1
