Single dads may not be aware of it, but many of them have it a lot easier than single mothers when it comes to dating. Most men aren’t too thrilled with the idea of dating a woman with children, whereas many women seem perfectly fine with it. The problem single dads run into, however, is what they put in their dating profiles when trying to attract women. Your dating profile is all about your tone and if you tone comes off the wrong way, you are going to scare women away whether you’re a single father or not. What you want to do is highlight why women should date you even though you’re a single dad, and it may not be as difficult as you think.
Don’t Share Your Life Story On Your Profile
We know it may be tempting to tell potential dates exactly what happened between you and the mother of your children all at one time, but you shouldn’t do this. Women do not need to know what happened that resulted with you being a single dad right away. This is something that should be explained during a date. You also do not need to explain how often you have your children or whether or not they live with you. The reason you want to exclude explaining this information is because you want to weed out the women that are going to end up being afraid or uncomfortable around your kids. Some women will still want to date you as long as your kids aren’t living with you on a permanent basis. If your children don’t live with you, this may seem like a decent way to date. However, you can never tell what will happen and eventually you may end up having to live with the kids full-time. If that happens, you can say goodbye to those types of women.
Don’t Show a Negative or Pessimistic Tone
When you create your dating profile, make sure your tone is coming off positive even if you feel like you are never going to have any luck. You don’t want women to think you’re angry or desperate for the attention of any woman at all. You also don’t want her to feel uncomfortable socializing with you. Do not put things in your profile such as, “I know I’m never going to have any luck with this,” or “I know most women aren’t interested in dating a men with children.” These types of statements in your profile will always backfire on you. Appear to be positive and upbeat and it will convince women to give you a chance.
Being a single father is hard enough. You do not need to make things harder by pushing away women before you even give them the chance to be interested in you. Learn to highlight the advantages of dating you by mentioning the fun things you do with and without your children. Your children do not define who you are so do not make them the main focus of your profile.
