I'm a prisoner of words unsaid. Just lonely feelings locked away in my head. I trap myself further everytime I stay quiet. I start to speak but I stop and stay silent. And now I've made my own hard bed.

Kid-free. That's the way to be (Posted on MySpace 06/12/06)
Kid-free. That's the way to be.
I read a blog today from a man who admits he is too selfish to date a woman with kids. He is very spontaneous and wants all of his woman's love and attention. He doesn't want to have to plan dates, cuddling, and sex around a child's bed time. From experience, many men who I deem to be "good" men, have similar thoughts around dating women with kids.
I can totally understand why men don't particularly care to have relationships with single moms (I've been told that men will sleep with them, but not commit to them), but I find myself feeling sorry for single women. If all men (or even most) think this way, are these women bound to live and die single...married only to their children? Are they bound to settle for less and end up in an unhappy marriage? Maybe they will give up men completely and hook up with each other.
I, and many other ladies I'm sure, have my reasons for not caring to date men with kids, but women seem to be more likely to date a man with kids than a man is likely to date a women with kids. Why is that?
Single parents, (particularly ladies) what is it like searching for true love? Do you search for a partner who also has kids?
Kid-free ladies? Who do/don't you date men with kids?
