I need an honest answer...I'm 24 and I've only been with one person in my whole life..We had a baby together and we had plans to get married but things didn't work out so I ended up. Now I'm new to this new dating thing and I don't know what to expect from guys. People tell me that I need to be prepare because there are many jerks out there and I'm going to have ups and downs. I just don't know how guys might feel dating a girl that already has a baby? Would they even consider on having something serious? I would never introduce my son to any of my dates unless I feel its something serious, I also don't like talking about it with just any guy but sometimes they take it wrong like if I'm hiding something, which I'm not I just don't want to confuse my baby having to meet many guys.
Most Helpful Guy
Lots of men who thought of you as being out of their league before, will want to date you. Most men that were your equal before you had kids, will look elsewhere. Having a kid lowers your overall value. Lest say a woman that was a 9, on a scale of 1-10 would never date a guy that was as low as a 6. However after having a kid or kids, her overall value has dropped due to the extra baggage she now has. The woman that was a 9 might consider dating a 6 after she has a kid. At least this is what most guys are hoping for.
Basically, the guys you date in the future, may not be as good looking, or may suffer from lower confidence than the guys you use to date. I am talking about men that want a relationship, not about guys that just want to hook up.
Single dads are going through the same thing. In fact most of the single moms I know, still will not consider a single dad as an option. I am talking about if the kids live with the father. If a man with a kid is not a problem for you, then you may want to look for a single dad, that understands your situation.1
