This is a no brainer. Somewhere around 90% of all child care providers and grade school teachers are Women. Women have a natural nurturing instinct towards kids.

Guys, especially those without kids in their 30s and 40s, are primarily looking for a boink, and eventually those kids are just gonna get in the way.
Or some guys like myself, don't like the idea of raising another guy's kids.

I agree. If you're dating the person who has primary custody, then it means they'll have less free time that they can allocate to you. Since the mother is more often the one who has primary custody, that makes it harder for her whereas the father will have most of his evenings free to spend with his girlfriend.

then don't waste your time with anyone who doesn't also already have kids.
I'll never understand why people buy into this reasoning. How does the other person also having kids make it any easier? Yes, they'll understand what it's like for you. But now you have two people with limited free time. Seems like all the potential hassles that come with dating someone with kids are just made worse when both people have them.
