Do single dads prefer to date women without kids?

by singlemomseeking on January 14, 2009

That’s a question we’d love to answer at

Secretly, Dr. Leah and I have always suspected that many single dads shy away from single moms. Now, for the first time ever, our worst fears are apparently confirmed.

It’s only the second week into the thirteenth season of The Bachelorand Jason Mesnick has already booted two of the four single moms off the show!

Can someone please enlighten us here?

Does a reality show like the The Bachelor really shed light on the reality of dating single dads?

We’d love to know:

Do single dads deliberately avoid single moms in order to keep the focus on their own kids?

We’ve spoken to many single dads who tell us they have already have more than enough of their own “ex drama.” They’re not interested in the complications of dating a single mom, especially her “ex drama” -– not to mention her own kid complications.

Is this true?

Feel free to leave your thoughts here — or read more over at and comment there.

Single dads: Do you avoid dating single moms?

And single moms, we’d love to hear if your experiences mirror ours!

Dating is challenge period. I seem to only attract dads whom are still in the relationship with their childs mother. I think people need to just stay together for the children so childfree people can have a better chance. But then there are lying cheaters who live double lives. I don’t even care if I find anyone because problems will always arise but companionship is in our human instinct. Just date people and don’t worry about being serious until you find someone who’s life can balance your own.
