I attract a lot of men who already have kids and maybe a second one in the mix. I feel terrible when I explain that I won't date someone with kids but it's drama I just don't want to deal with, especially because I'm young and don't have any on my own. How would you feel with a person who has children?
if i was in love with him, i'd date him; if i only kinda sorta liked him, then probably not.
also, the fact that the kids exist means that there is a mother who gave birth to them. unless she died (and even then), she'll be in your relationship forever; if she's alive, she's almost definitely still in the picture and will likely cause more drama than i'm willing to deal with.
i admire people who put their kids first~ my mom did, when she started dating my now-(step) dad, and one of my closest friends, who has a 7 year-old daughter, is doing the same now. but i am child-free by choice, and would prefer to remain that way.
I wouldn't date someone who has children. I wouldn't know how to deal with them and I'm sure we would have a lot of arguments because of it. Plus, there would be always a chance that they wouldn't like me.
not now, since I'm just 18 but since younger I've known that I would have no problem with that, as long as they are responsable dads. If they are single dads its quite different from being the dick head who got his teenager girlfriend pregnant and never really took responsibility
