That's because you evidently haven't gotten close to marrying one. The deeper you get into the relationship, the more you become brainwashed into paying for them.

First it's pizza and ice cream, then it's the baseball and soccer leagues... and then college tuition.

As a man, single mothers are an absolute dealbreaker for me. I would never, ever, never, date a single mother. There is too much baggage, daddy drama, kid might end up hating you, just not worth it.

Women are monsters who make you love them and their children. They trick you into wanting to provide for a child you love and cherish. How dare they!

All "yous" general, of course, I doubt you'll ever have a woman try to trick you into loving her.

I have, actually.

And no, none of those things happened. Like everyone I date, she was a highly educated professional (a tenured professor) and had no need for my money for her or her child.

So here's a question, have you actually done it before or are you just spouting BS?

Coming from a guy who has dated several, and currently IS dating a single (albeit divorced) mom, I can attest that there is the possibility of drama, but I think that is overrated, and is the exception than the rule.

And if the kid hates you, it's probably because you dont treat him/her right, or just are not fit to be a parent

I'm also guessing all of you saying stuff like this are in your early 20's and self proclaimed "alpha" males who are proud of that label, to the point where you have a pin or something, right?

Me either...

But then again, I don't have poor judgment, I can usually spot someone looking for a piggy bank and dont get too involved

Its that simple. Date quality women and it won't be an issue.

Let me guess, when you date, you go Dutch? (look it up if you dont know what I mean)

If you are a chump that can be tricked into completely supporting your woman, than you deserve what you get

It's quite obvious the more I read this forum that a lot of people have just no life or relationship skills, are horrible judges of character and are too tied up on perception, labels and innuendo to cope
