Most Helpful Guy
Honestly, I love kids. I have great nieces and nephews and want at least three of my own. The only issue I have dating a single mom is that I come from a dynastic family with many heirlooms, etc. that have been with us for literally centuries in our bloodline dating all the way back to the American Revolution. I am the only child of my father so I will inherit all of the family heirlooms though I do have two half-brothers who I love dearly.
My issue is that I would learn to love your child as my own and hope one day they called me dad as I am very traditional and what to be a good father, yet it goes against my family to give anything out of our bloodline and I wouldn't want to be put in that kind of situation of making a child think I love them any less. My father is still giving my brothers an inheritance but I am getting all the heirlooms and so forth.
I know that I'm kind of odd in the sense of the "dynasty" and whatnot, but I know a lot of guys who love kids but wouldn't want to put the kids that they have in the sense of "mine vs. theirs." Then there is also the general sense of possible issues with the child not viewing them as their parent and issues with the previous father.
You are probably hurt from this and I am sorry. :- ( That was not my intent. It may sound all cool to be from a "dynasty," but having a bloodline isn't as cracked up as you think it would be. In order to inherit anything I have to be married to a woman of a reputable station and produce a male heir, otherwise everything goes to one of my cousins.
There are some men who would be willing and happy to date a single mom, so don't lose hope! I'd say guys in their late twenties or a guy who already has a kid would be willing to. I wish you lots of luck in finding love!1
