Would you date someone that has a child/children from a previous relationship?

I am dating someone with a kid--it doesn't bother me at all. I'm not involved with that aspect of his life at this point, and don't plan to be any time soon. If that changes at some point, it certainly wouldn't be a deal breaker.

It seems that once you get into your 30s most people have kids, but I don't and I don't care for children. This makes things... awkward. Why does everyone think I'm gonna think their kids are cute? LOL

At this point in my life, no. I'm fairly young and want no business getting children involved in my affairs. It may have already been said before but the only way it could work is if I didn't meet the children as odd as that sounds. I don't think it's fair to the children to have to meet and deal with many different women/mother type figures.
However later in my life when I'm ready to settle down, I would think about it.

Because the societal norm is that all women have strong maternal instincts and/or want to breed. It's really depressing for those of us "outside the norm" to be treated as suspicious just because we don't take part in a voluntary biological process.

Personally no.
I do not want to be a parent or involved with kids at any point in my life. It makes dating extremely difficult, but I know there are like minded folks out there :3

Yes. I think if someone is a good person who you really enjoy, you should embrace everything about them. Everyone has baggage in different forms, and children can be great to get to know.

When I got married 27 years ago, I got a package deal. I knew it from the first time we went out. He had full custody of her so she is "mine" and even though we went through some tough times, I would do it all over again. She has brought so much joy into my life

Having children itself wouldn't be a reason not to.

I might. It would depend on how old the kids were and other factors though.

No. I don't want children, so this would be a dealbreaker for me.

Absolutely not. I'm child free by choice in every sense of the word. I don't want bio kids, adopted kids, or someone else's kids.

I have children and I have found a lot of people don't want to date others with kids if they don't have any.
