The title of this question is.. self explanatory.
Would you date someone who has a child?
A friend of mine, who is the age of eighteen, just got himself a new girlfriend. Of course, she has a child. Anyway, this situation has gotten me thinking; Who else would do this? Not only that, but do you think he (my friend) is too young to take on the responsibilities of a child?

When I remarried, I had custody of my then 5 year old son. My new wife had custody of two daughters from a previous marriage. We met via eHarmony. One of the elements of the guided communication that takes place between eHarmony matches is the exchange of "must haves" and "can't stands". Basically, these are lists of 10 requirements and 10 deal breakers (each selected from eHarmony provided lists of choices).
We both had this requirement in our "must haves":
"My match must be willing to accept my child as their own."
That's a pretty heavy requirement to place on someone. It's not surprising that we would both have children. However, most of my eHarmony matches did not have children already. But, each one of those 120+ matches agreed, in principle, to accept my child as their own. I was not even introduced to any woman who would reject this responsibility. That's the way eHarmony works.1

Good Lord no.
It would go against absolutely everything lol
I am looking for a spouse. I am saving myself for my spouse. In order to qualify as a potential spouse, he must also be saving himself. If he's toting along a kid then OBVIOUSLY he did not save himself and therefore is NOT what I'm looking for at all.0
