I’d say about 90% of the women on the dating websites I visit have kids. But dealing with the ex-husband who might be really possessive can be scary. I spent more time with the kid than I ever did with her. I didn’t have the time to learn about her, because I was too busy taking care of the kid. But when 90% of the girls online have kids, you’re basically relegating yourself to ONLY girls with kids.
Now, I know that it seems cruel to favor girls without kids, but – I’ve dated single mothers before. Also, when a woman has a kid, it’s harder to find any time to learn who the woman is. I played with him, disciplined him, tucked him in at night, and read him stories – the whole thing. So when we finally hit a small bump in the road, the relationship crumbled. And with Christmas around the corner, I’m simply not ready to be a father figure AND Santa Claus.
There IS a chance that someone might stalk her, or threaten her, or send her inappropriate pictures. And if she is pretty, her inbox will be flooded with messages from guys who only want one thing.
Then there is the idea that her boss might see, or her friends, or her neighbors, or the guy at the gas station.
No one will threaten him, or send him inappropriate pictures.
So today, I’m deleting all of my online dating profiles, and venturing out onto a brave new experiment called, “real life”.
No one will send him aggressive commands to put this on, or take this off.
The girls online who don’t have kids usually have other baggage.
Either they are very unattractive to me, or they have some kind of rude personality that turns guys off to them in real life. Occasionally, there are attractive single girls without kids who appear online.
