    Yellow apple, you always find someone where you least expect to.

    It's completely understandable Yellow that it's hard for you to deal with. I guess it's just a personal peeve of mine that I could develop a chemistry with someone and then they shut it off because I have children. Me having children doesn't change who I am. If anything, it shows better, other sides of me.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    Hazy, I almost didn't write that because of you. I honestly mean no offense, so please don't take any. I just know that there were problems that repeated themselves in relationships I had with fathers that weren't there in non-kid situations. Again, I'd like to reiterate that I don't think that fathers are bad people. Not even a little bit. I just think that in my case, it's a situation that doesn't end well.

    Yellow Apple, I can totally understand where you're coming from. I would hope the person you're dating wouldn't expect you to just become a parent to their kids. They already have parents. Hopefully they would guide you along with how to deal with the situation and become great friends and role model for their kids. JMO.

    Amanda, no offense was taken. I just wanted to provide a countering viewpoint. Really, I understand where you are coming from. It's cool.

    I think having children and dating opens you up to a larger conversation plataeu, I don't talk about my kids ,but I do find there are different avenues of discussion I 'm talking about that I would'nt of before.

    I used to always say that I could never be with a girl that has kids, but now I just try to look at each case individually. As long as she doesn't lie about having kids (like this one girl did) and doesn't expect me to be Super Dad then I can deal with it. It's weird, but I could deal with it if I really liked the girl.

    No you're not! I echo Alias' sentiments, you will find someone when you least expect it , Life is funny that way.

    As for the kids thing, I think that it's a harder hurdle to deal with than bad breath perhaps. But kids are a part of who you guys are and there is nothing wrong with that! Being a great, nurturing, dad is actually a HUGE turn-on for many women, myself included. If you really love a person, a solution for mild complication always turns up .

    Maybe I should borrow a kid and cruise through the mall to pick up chicks.

    Any places where I can rent a kid for a few hours?

    You don't necessarily need a kid, Dogs always seem to work too!
