I would. It would be a lot different than dating someone without a kid, and it would add a whole new dimension to the relationship, but if things get serious and the child takes a liking to me, that dimension will be beautiful. It would depend a bit on the circumstances, but someone having a child isn't a deal breaker for me.
I can understand why people wouldn't want to. Some people wouldn't want to think about the father of the child maybe being around sometimes, and they wouldn't be comfortable helping to take care of a child that isn't theirs.
If I wasn't married, I'd date a single parent on two circumstances : 1. The children's dad and his mom are completely out of the picture: no visiting rights, no shared child education. I don't want to cope with a jealous ex. 2. The children are some 4 years away from hitting puberty. The time needed for them to accept me. I don't want to cope with an adolescent playing me out against his/her dad and granny.
If I was older and I madly loved her, then yes. However, I'm far too young to get into that kind of serious relationship and responsibility. I can barely take care of myself and need so much more maturity and growth as a person. So, my ultimate answer is no.
No because I'm not interested in spending the blood, sweat and tears on a kid that isn't mine, secondly kids take priority and that's fine if it's mine but not somebody else's. There's probably gonna be some random baby daddy causing drama too. Fuck all that, I want a uterus with no previous occupants.
