I'm 25 with a 7 year old little girl that I adore with all of my heart. I've been dating a guy for 5 months now and he just told me that he's freaked out about dating a girl with a kid. I know it's scary and most guys I date don't ask me out for a second date when they find out I have a child. But my current beau had been around for 5 months now, my daughter has become use to him being around, and I just don't know what to do now.
I guess all I can do is wait to see if he sticks around :( Would you guys out there ever consider dating a girl with a kid?

This question came up recently from someone else here in this forum, and I provided this answer:
"It depends on the guy, and whether he wants an "instant" family. I would think that any guy who is attracted to you, would consider that part of the relationship. There is no way to separate the two. So if he loves you, he will love your daughter. I speak from experience here. I am in love with a girl who has a four year old. The baby's father abandoned her when she was three months pregnant. I am older, and have already raised three other daughters, and now I'm going to marry her. (I'm divorced) I already accept her child as mine. I would actually like to have another baby with her, too! Children add to a relationship." This advice applies to you as well. The fact that your current beau has been with you as long as he has, is encouraging! I hope everything works out for you. You sound like a nice person, and a good Mom! Good luck!1
