I am a single mother who is just now trying get in the dating field. I basically have been "single" even during my marriage raising our kids and just want to know how guys feel about getting involved with a woman who has children where the father has basically "checked out" and not in the picture for sometime now.
if i were young (in my 20's) dating a woman with kids might give me pause.
but, at this age, i wouldn't even consider a woman who hasn't been married (or in a long-term committed relationship) and who doesn't have children. i can't imagine that she'd have learned how to love in the absence of these things. i say these things right in my profile.
