Met a guy and found out he has kids. Mother is still in the picture, and I've never had kids or been married before. I like him, but I'm conflicted as to whether this is something I would like to continue now that I know. Anyone got any thoughts on this?

I've been on both sides of that situation. Generally I think the person with the child often demands too much from the person they are dating. They often immediately want someone involved and help with the family. They are seemingly constantly in a preparation to pull you into the family.
At the state in my life I am in, I wouldn't expect that not would I even want that.
I have a child but as far as dating a woman with a child I need to know she's separating me from her home life. She doesn't have to introduce me to her children for a long while or expect me to be apart of her family. People with children rush things too often. I think its good to make it clear where you stand and what you expect out of dating him.0

If that connection is there and you really like him, don't let the fact that he has children stop you. He could end up being the love of your life.0
