Would you date a man who already has children?

Scenario: You've met a fabulous guy....but now he breaks it to you that he has children! Would you still date him, or is this a daddy drama dealbreaker?

I wouldn't want to step into this territory myself. How about you?

It depends on how long we've been seeing each other firstly. That should be discussed pretty soon into dating. Also, it depends if he is the primary care-giver or not.

Since I'm 45 & doubt anyone much younger than I would date me, I guess I just expect there's either a divorce &/or children in the picture. Neither of which bother me unless there's significant drama in the family. I guess as a younger person who might be dating as a means to a serious relationship and perhaps having my own children, I would be more choosy about the situation because there are more young people available without the added baggage. Regardless, I agree with KrissyNovacaine that it should be discussed soon into dating.

I'd absolutely date a guy with kids. That way, I don't have to worry when I tell him that I'm ABSOLUTELY DONE WITH HAVING MORE!! I have 2 of my own, and I'm ready to work on my career, no more changing diapers!

I wouldn't. Motherhood isn't one of my goals in life and I'd let whoever know that before we start a relationship.

I would, but I think I would prefer that he not have full custody since I am not that great with kids and would like alone time with him, but would want him to be involved in his kids life

It would be a deal breaker. I'm willing to date if he wants them but hasn't had them yet (like I'm doing now), but if kids are involved, forget it. I don't want them getting used to me in their lives and then having to go through the inevitable break-up, I don't want to be known as "the daddy baby's new slut", and I don't want to fuck up someone else's kids.

I want children but don't know if I would be able to have my own, so dating someone with children would be something I'd be open to in the right circumstance -- letting the kids know I'm not going to replace their mom, a civil relationship with the children's mother, etc.
