In my case I was raised by a single mother throughout my teenage years (parents divorced), and she brought in all sorts of weird guys to our home, including one who stole my mother's car and my prized possessions (all my video games and my Mickey Mantle autographed baseball card). I didn't want to be anything like those guys. So if I was to ever consider dating a single mother again, her kids would have to love me and want me there. It'd be even more important for me to win the kids' approval than the mother's.
That sucks. It is probably hard for them to find a good guy. One guy I worked with told me how when he was nine one of his mom's boyfriends would punch him hard in the stomach when she wasn't around, just for fun.
@zagor Just in my narrow experience, single mothers can be quite desperate and emotional, starting with my own when I was a teen. I think they get so overwhelmed trying to make ends meet and raise kids simultaneously that they can latch onto some very questionable guys. The one I dated briefly above apparently dated one guy who gambled away not only his mother but hers as well and, to make ends meet, she worked as a cabaret girl (kyabakura hostess). In her case I actually found her the burden -- I enjoyed hanging out with her kids, but she was rather high-maintenance emotionally and would tend to get upset all the time. We kept in touch after briefly dating but she moved back to her hometown where her parents helped her take care of her kids, and fortunately just last year she married a really good older guy in his 40s who, as far as I can tell, really cares about both her and the kids.

Some people are OK with it. I had a friend who married a girl with boys 7 and 9 at the time. He never seemed the type to want to be around babies/toddlers, so it worked out well. He was devastated when the younger one was killed in a accident.
