Fifth, I didn't see the point of dating a man who constantly favoured some other woman's kid over me.
If *I* ever got pregnant with his child I felt that I would be left in the cold with no protection because he'd be too busy protecting his daughter. This is from another guy's (I am divorced dad of three kids and have seen some issues with non kidded women) perspective but it might apply to you: Kids: 1. Hey it may have been a bad decision or a mistake, but you have to realize (and she does too) that there was something there at one time.
I don't feel the need to call you 6 times a day to make sure that you still may be interested. I can take care of myself and don't expect a man to do it for me.
We usually have less hang ups about our bodies and sex. If I want to be high maintenance, I pay for it myself and don't expect to find a man to pay for me.
Third, I felt like the daughter was stealing all his weekends.
(yes, I know I'm over-thinking everything, that's what I do best ) I'm a 26 year old female and I wouldn't want to date someone with kids. I dated a 29 year old man who had a child out of wedlock.
He worked during the weekdays then had to take care of his 5 year old daughter on the weekends. First, I wasn't happy that he met face to face with his ex-lover every single week.
Why not stick to them and make life easier for yourself? On the pro side: Even though, scheduling to see a woman with kids may be more tricky and less available, I feel we are very confident and self-assured.
We like to make the most of our free time and go out and have fun when we don't have the kids.
