I'm 18 years old and was wondering what guys think of it?
Most Helpful Guy
Wow, the judgement on here is harsh. I've dated single moms in the past, and wouldn't have any problem doing it again. One of them had their first child when she was really young, but she did an amazing job raising her children. All of them have grown into amazing people. I know a lot of people that were married and stayed married and had kids later, and were terrible people that raised terrible, shitty-ass children. This 'holier than thou' attitude is bullshit, as if they haven't made a mistake in their life, or had something not work out the way they thought it would.
Most of the young single moms that I know did not end up single on purpose. A lot of them didn't really end up as moms on purpose either, they just put too much faith in what the guy was saying, and got burnt.
It will be a problem for some guys, and it won't be a problem for some guys. Some guys will be able to see the real you, some won't. The thing is, a lot of the guys that won't be able to see the real you, wouldn't be able to see the real you if the person was not a single mom, and then they would wonder why things didn't play out the way they thought later. Empathy and compassion are good traits to look for in a partner, and people that will be able to look past your child/no child status and see the real you, and understand your situation, will tend to have more empathy and compassion than those that just judge you based on one event that they have no knowledge about.1
