Default Message to Women with Children

Please be upfront that you are a MOM when you talk to a guy for the first time because if not he may suddenly lose interest. I got a reply from this pretty girl the other night and she waited until the second phone conversation to tell me she had a son.


She was no longer attractive to me and I felt no need to talk because that's something you mention very early in the first conversation. I don't need to know your child's name or what school they go to but I do need to know you are a single parent which gives me the option of getting to know you or not taking it further. Hiding it makes it worse

I agree. It's best to be up front about this.

What happened was she just interrupted me in a middle of a sentence to say-"Is it ok if I give you a call back?

I was like-"um yeah"

Found out the next day it was because of her child which means if her child never needed her I still would have never known she was a mom

Ok, I'll let the men know ASAP, if I'm ever single again.

However, that doesn't stop loads of them from hitting on me and asking me out all the time while my children are within plain sight (and my wedding ring).

Does the same go for herpes, AIDS and other STD's? Should you tell in the first convo or wait until later?

Yes, all that. And the colostomy bag along with a list of the last five people you had sex with.

I would expect some one to tell me if they have AIDs, herpes, chlamydia once I say "Hi" to them
