My boyfriend would want to be "bothered." If you love someone, doing what it takes to be with them isn't considered a bother.
That said, I don't care to be with someone who doesn't care to be with someone with kids. So, I won't be out there trying to convert anyone.
I agree. I am a single mother and I don't have ANY drama with my son's father. I actually have never dated anyone with a child but I definately couldn't handle anyone who is in battle with their child's mother-because I have seen some CRAZY things happening.
However, being a mother is part of who I am and I don't hide that fact. I would much rather have a guy know up front that they can handle or not handle dating a woman with a child and decide not to be with me because of that (even though I have never ran into this problem) instead of misleading both themselves and me. It is not offending to tell a man/woman that you can't be with them because they have kids.
Of course as a mother I also don't introduce my child to every man who wants to take me out - that is not fair for my son.
