I am separated after 7+ years of marriage and have 3 kids.
I wonder what it's like dating when you come with "baggage." Do you tell them straight up you have 3 kids or does that make you a target for abusers?
If you're looking for commitment before sex, when should you say that?
I am terrified!
Anyone date and/or remarry after divorce?

How are you going about dating? Online or just meeting guys in person? I'd have more of a fear of abusers with online creepy dudes.
I think you firstly you go on a few dates and then establish your thoughts. If you want to continue things then talk about your boundaries.
As far as telling him that you have kids. It could be the first date and probably should be. l jyst to kinda cover your ass. You are a single mom of 3, you probably don't have a lot of time outside your babies so I'm getting at when he asks you "what do you do on your weekends? You don't have to worry about saying "oh I take my kids to the park or watch them play sports" because he knows you have kids.
Not divorced and not remarried so I can't help you there.0

I was married for 19 years when I got divorced and my kids were about 16, 14, 13, and 11.
I've since remarried but when I did date I always found it best to be honest about having kids and that I wasn't interested in just sex. Most, but not all, of my dating was through OKCupid, which made it easy to be up front.
Post-divorce dating can be really scary so I know how you feel. If you've any questions or want to chat about it, you're welcome to message me.
