Dating sites singles without kids
In 2007, I met my husband on a little website called My Space.
(You may have heard of it.) One evening, I was cruising the site for dates, entering all the criteria that mattered to me — height, education, facial hair — when a picture of the man who would one day be the father of my children blowing a noise maker with his nose was so captivating that I knew I had to have him.
Here's what happened when I checked the box, and here's what happened when I didn't.Admitting to having children made me more "real." Online dating is a crap shoot.In the day and age of , fraud scams, and other methods of deceiving people through the internet, people, especially those vulnerable enough to put themselves out there to find love, want assurances that the person they are falling for is really the person that they think he or she is. The people who contacted me on POF —mostly men although there were some women — were generally not my type.The fact that my profile headline included my children appears to not have affected my results.Instead, from the messages I received, I think it helped.
By being honest about my children, it shows potential matches that I have nothing to hide, and that I am indeed presenting to them person I claim to be. However, I did receive the most genuine-sounding messages from this online profile. That's a blessing," and "I'm a father too." Another man wrote me an entire page discussing his views on family values, where he has traveled, where he grew up, and what his life goals are.
