In your opinion would a single parent do better in the dating field with a divorced parent?
Or do some think that they can date whomever they want?

They can date whomever they want, as long as the other person is open to dating them. My only issue is when single parents get mad when childless won't date them, then that offends me.

I thought the point of dating was to find the right person? Sometimes the right person might have a child.

Yep, I have known quite a few people who married when one had kids and the other had never married.

Some single people want kids but circumstances in their lives never allowed that to happen. LTRs broke apart, and they just had not met the right person. If the right person happened to have children, and the single partner was mature enough and strong enough to love those children too, it works great!

As the old quote goes, it takes a strong person to step up to the plate another parent left on the table.

Single parents should date those that are willing to date them.

Personally, I can't see why a parent would want to date someone without children. If I were single, I wouldn't even entertain dating a childless man, unless his childless status was not his choice.

This is an interesting point. Yes a single parent can get along with a person who has children themselves. Although the single parent would have to look at many factors.
Is she/he A.- A good parent?
B.- A interactive parent?
C.- A fair parent?
D.- Willing to share responseability?


On another take, why shouldn't he/she marry a single woman/man without children?

Maybe doesn't want her to have kids? And would like to have future ones with her.

And the same goes for the female.

Anyone should date anyone they feel like as long as they're both of age.

Exactly. Why do people insist that certain people should either only date or lean more toward a certain group?

Tall men do not have to date tall women
Short women do not have to date short men
Black men do not have to date black women
Asian women do not have to date Asian men
Fat women do not have to date fat men
Single parents do not have to date single parents

Everyone can date whoever they want as long as they are of age whether or not you approve
