Would you be comfortable dating a single parent? Yes/No?

Would you? Or would it depend on circumstances? What about a girl who had a baby between the age of 16-18 and now she's in her mid twenties to 30s?

So guys would you date a single mum and girls would you date a single dad?

  • I've tried it and it'll be different for each single parent but here's the thing, regardless of how good of a match you are and how much you like each other, the single parent's kid (s) WILL get in the way of dating. You're kidding yourself if you think otherwise.

    Even if you're not expected to be a father/mother figure, a lot of times you may not get to see each other because the single parent has to take care of their child (s), put them to bed, can't find a babysitter and other events related to parenting.

    I understand that it has to be that way and it's the parent's responsibility but I'm not ready for that at this point. Last month, I started seeing a girl off tinder who had 2 kids and had a lot in common with and was very attractive but I only got to see her once and the kids and her working full time are making it hard to meet up, not to mention she lives about an hour away. I'm not saying I gotta see her every day of course but once a month is too few for dating. It may as well be a long distance relationship.

    Bottom line is if you have a best friend who's a parent, which I have a few of, and you hardly get to see them then the same thing will happen with your date who's a single parent. Realize what you're getting into.

  • If her old spouse died then I would be completely okay with it, but if she was just a whore who had kids off her last boyfriend, or who divorced her husband for a dumb reason then I would stay as far away as possible.

    • Absolutely! I totally agree with this opinion. If she had died or something I would be fine with it. Or if his wife had left him. But as for the single mum to a seven year old at 25 or a single dad with 2 kids below the age of 21? No thank you!

  • The having a child part would be a bit of an issue because I don't want children. Already had enough helping raise my little sister for the past decade.

  • It depends on how she came to be a single parent. If it was by choice, I would not date her. I think it says a lot about a woman if she believes it is OK to raise a child without a father.

    • I dont think all of single parents plan to be single parents. I tried to work things out with my daughters dad for a long time and I was miserable and so was my family.. It wasn't worth it. He is still of course in her life though..
