This statement was provided by a 22 year old single mother of 2 children that is actively seeking the love of her life on a dating site:
“my kids come before anything if you can’t respect that keep walking”
I understand that a mother’s children mean the world to her…I have met very few women that would not do almost anything for their children…so why say it?
Personally if I were an interested guy reading this I would move on the next profile in a big hurry. When I read this the first thought that comes to mind is; “So…where would I fit in?”
So, I don’t even read profiles that say, “…my children will always come first.” I think kids are really cool, but I don’t need to be in a relationship where I will always come second.
I did go on a few dates with a woman that had those same words in her profile and you know what…she meant what she said. I was just someone to pay for her and her kids. There was no dating…just a mother with her kids and everywhere we went I was the one paying…not for 2 but for 4.
The point is I married a woman that had 3 children and although I know that her kids mean the world to her, she has always made time for me. This has allowed the 5 of us to be a family.
