My children are my world!
If you have come to an online dating site to boast about you're children you've come to the wrong place. As a man, when you say you're a single mother I get it. You don't need to say your children are your life. No man is thinking he's going to compete with your kids. What he does want to know is if you are seriously at a place in your life to make time to date, and carve out a space for him and you to figure out if a relationship can work.
I am only interested in long term committed relationships.
Again ladies as a man we get it. Of course there are guys out there only looking for quick hooks ups and one night stands, but you can filter those out for yourself. This is online dating profile, most men just want to get to the first date. We aren't against LTR and commitment, but we just selected a profile we liked. Every relationship starts with hello and builds on its own organically. You can't force it. And yes, by and large by the time you get to the 3rd to 5th date without sex, how can you expect a commitment? Yes we want to date and we want time to figure it out and we are willing to wait. But you want commitment without risk of investment, no man gets it that way with any women. Why do you expect him to jump into commitment with a women before they even dated for a month or more?
Between work and kids I stay super busy, so don't waste my time and I won't waste yours?
Why would you ever say this on a dating profile? Do you honestly expect good men to jump on that statement, because you're seriously all that and offering more? I can't tell you how many times I have seen this statement. You're literally saying I don't have time to date, I just want a man to fall out of sky and slip seamlessly into my life when its convenient for me. Seriously, if you want a committed relationship you have to make yourself available to the man at least 1 to 2 days a week without the kids. If you don't have time or opportunity to do that in your life, then you're not ready to seriously be dating.
I am just looking to make new friends and meet new people?
Unless this is code for I am into casual dating, don't ever say this in an online dating profile. I as a man, didn't come online to meet new people and make friendships. I looking for a relationship that offers more then being friends. If you're into and looking for casual dating, then just say that. If your not then don't talk about wanting to make friendships and meeting new people. I as a man am thinking she's not into commitment or dating that she's into hooking up. More times then not it means she's confused and not emotionally ready to be dating.
Last thing, do not call your pets your babies in online dating profile. Even if its true get into that later. No man wants to compete with an animal for the affection of a women. It implies you have isdue forming meaningful bongs with the men you date...and yes your attachment to your pets can get in the way. Just say you're an animal lover and leave until later to discuss.
