sweetiemermaid :  looking at her posting history – shes 25 and already divorced herself. Ironic isn’t it. The zoebunbun chick.

OP hang in there! While I’m not in your situation as I don’t have kids, I have known people with kids finding their SO’s. I’m going to piggy back with other PP’s and say look for the older crowd. Just because you look young doesn’t mean it’s a turn off. You could show yourself off in your profile by showing maturity and what else you have going on in your life 🙂

I wouldn’t put pictures of your kid on a dating website. Waaaay too many creeps out there. Just stating you have a child is enough IMO.

Honestly most of the guys I knew at 25 would have run the other way from the idea of becoming a step-parent. I’d either age up your limits or just date casually and maybe the right guy will step up.

Don’t give up! My cousin fell in love with his beautiful now wife, and he adopted her son.  It also could have to do with age.  Have you thought about extending your age range a little? There are some more mature men out there who I am sure would be thrilled to have your son in their lives.

I’m sure it’s tough to date as a single mother when you are 25. But there no need for despair. The right one will come along. That being said, could you consider someone older? Like 35+? When I was 25 someone with kids would have been a deal breaker.since I would not have been mature enough to be a step parent. That is a whole different thing than becoming a biological parent at that age.

Personally, I think that it’s actually easier for single moms to find a guy. When a single mom claims this I am always so skeptical, and it actually sounds like someone blaming the child for their social life/love life.

Why would it be easier to date as a single mother? You have less time, more responsibility, a narrower dating field as there are many who don’t want to take on the responsibility of a child, and you have to make sure they are not just the right fit for you but also someone who is good for your kid.

Your comment is super judge-y and honestly just ridiculous. jess9090 :
