If you're a mother, you might be offended, but I honestly wouldn't no matter how good the woman is or how good looking she is, a child is a deal-breaker for me and I don't like kids at all. I don't want children at all, why would I want to date a woman who has a child who will most likely not listen to me because "You're not my daddy!" Too much drama. Would you date a single mother

I'm a single mom and I'm not offended. I can see why you would feel that way, it's legit. And if you don't like kids, then of course you wouldn't want to be around them. Make sense to me. At least you know this about yourself and accept it. It's a hell of a lot better than getting into a relationship with a woman- and her kid(s)- and then finding out you don't really care for it.
And how's this for f***ed up: I'm not all that crazy about the thought of dating a man with kids! I have done it before and it was a total nightmare. I like *my* kid, but most of the other kids I know sort of suck. They are whiny, entitled, spoiled, and demanding and they don't have any manners. Also, I'm really good to go with just the one I have. I don't want any more kids- if I wanted more I would have birthed more myself. Not to mention that my child is used to being an ONLY child- like I am, like my mother is. I know I wouldn't have taken too kindly to having another kid forced into my face, and I am certain mine wouldn't like it any better than I would have.
That being said, I can and do still date. I have joint custody with my ex-husband which means I get her for a week at a time, and then we switch. In the years since my divorce, I have brought only one guy around my daughter. I don't plan on doing it again any time soon.
Anyway, if it's "offensive" that you don't want to date a woman with kids, then I imagine I must be extra-uber-offensive. (I'm okay with that.)1
