Hello guys, I've recently found myself separated after 8 years of marriage and back on the dating scene again. My questions is when I'm in a bar or club and meet a girl that I like, should I let her know that I'm separated with 2 kids or should I just say that I'm single? I'm not sure what to do. Based on my previous experience, I've chatted with at least 2 girls, but from time that I mention separated and kids it seems that they're no longer interested in me. The point I'm trying to make is that they are not willing to get to know the person more. I don't like to lie, but could it be viewed as just withholding information if you don't tell them?
I was also thinking that it might be better to say that I am single and after the first or second date when they've gotten to know me then tell them the truth and give them the reason why I stated I was single. I would appreciate some feedback.

I don't think there is anything wrong with simply stating you are single. The right girl will understand and be happy with the rest of your story, when the time is right to share it. Until you know you're interested in a woman and she's interested in you, there is no point going into details.
The advice above applies to girls you meet at bars and clubs. Girls you meet elsewhere (church, bookstore, dog park, etc.) may be more likely to roll with that right off the bat. Girls at bars are in a different state of mind, I think.1
