All this talk of single moms being undateable and undesirable...

Will it always be the case for single moms? Do you ever become desirable again in the dating pool?

I think it gets better when single mom is no longer raising kids,. So, when both kids are 18, and/or have moved out of the house, then dating may look up.

imo, single moms are only undesireable if they have multiple children from more than one dude and has never been married. If you were married and say you have 2,kids and the marriage dudnt work out then oh well shhh happens

also the ones looking for someone to finance them and their lil brats

there are some decent ones out there u just have to look carefully, just check for signs on crazyness and golddiggery and if the kids are young check to see if they are spoiled rotten. avoid these things and you should be ok

When you have your "act together" and have the drama in your life under control.
Also when you look and feel your best it will show.

Only to betas and possibly single men who have kids themselves.

Moms are dealbreakers for me.

"All this talk" seems generated by you having trouble finding dates.

There are tons of single moms who are desirable and get dates.

Lets not classify a whole, huge group within a gender as "undatable" and "undesirable"

It is simply a factor which will put some limit on the dating pool of available men, since not all men will be interested in a single mother. Many will. You just need to get out of this mindset, keep meeting people, and working on it.

IMHO, most single moms will say their children come first. So its only logical, that a man comes down the priority list, unless she needs money. But, she's only going to be interested in you as a wallet, babysitter, and gardener/maid/handiman.

I would be concerned if a single mom did NOT think this when approaching dating someone.

The thing is what happens after a relationship begins to develop? The man SHOULD move up the priority list, within reason. (ie, if the child has an emergent need, that is a clear obligation, but if not, time should be prioritized by the single mom for the growth and development of the relationship as well). It is an area where the man needs to be analytical about when evaluating the state of the relationship.

Single moms are desirable. Just not as desirable as a woman without kid/s.
