Closed poll, ok!

If you are a childless single male or female, would you date/consider a serious relationship with a single Mom or single Dad, respectively?

I don't think I would. Their children, from another source, seem to be "numero uno" in their lives. With single childless women, this source of potential friction doesn't exist. If you go on to have your own children, that's fine, though that doesn't interest me. I might be "somewhat" open to it if she was a widow, but I'd have to look at the whole scenario carefully.

Just answer the question/take the poll and provide your own reasons. Though I'm sure I'll get a "talkin' to."

Actually, I don't believe this has been asked in quite a while, nor polled.

It's also for single childless people.

Carry on...

Depends on the circumstance. If she was a widow I would probably be fine with it, but if she was divorced....way too much drama potential there. I don't think I'd do it. But again, it depends on the circumstances surrounding the divorce.

Thru my 40's, now way. Now in my 50's, as long as the kids are grown and on their own, and dad is no longer forking out for support/tuition/bail/restitution, sure.

I cant vote in the poll because it SPECIFICALLY asks for childless and single people, but I'll comment. Before I got married, I had two hard rules of dating/sex that I NEVER strayed from - 1) Exit only; 2) Never date a single mom. I held fast to these rules for many many years, however, when I met my wife, I bent rule #2 for her. But it was the perfect storm of: Her kid was from a previous marriage, the father was active in the kid's life, and she ONLY had the kid 3 out of four days of the week and NEVER on Friday and Saturday nights. Had it been any different she would have had no chance with me.

When I give dating advice, I always advise to stay away from single moms. ESPECIALLY if they had the kid out of wedlock. Double especially if the kid's father is not active in his/her life. Triple especially if the kid calls his grandmother "mommy" and his mother "Sarah" (or whatever her first name is).
