I hate being a single father

I have 3 kids and I love them, but I'm over being a single dad. It's beyond stressful, they all want different things at the same g****** time, all the time. I have no chance in the dating pool because who wants a single man with 3 kids? No one. F*** my life.

  • I was dad beginning from when my daughters were 3/4. I did my best, put them in good schools,got help from my parents,and they are now married and am a grandpa x3. My younger daughter got a nursing license from a community college and my older one is finishing up from a prestigious university. Yes some women are picky,but I dated those who accepted the fact that I am a single father. Right now,I have shared custody of two little sons from another relationship.The most wonderful woman in my life helps me with them during my visitation,which I am uncomfortable about at times.But I appreciate her efforts daily. Things will get better,have hope and good luck.

  • Please don't write yourself off this way. There are plenty of single women who might be interested in dating you. What you seem to need to do is build your support system a lot more so that you have someone to watch the kids why you enjoy some free time out to date and socialize. Do also consider joining a single parenting group near you. Your life will eventually improve. Hang in there!

  • Stop your whining and suck it up buttercup! I know many women who have become step-parents to children. I was once one myself. I won't lie, it wasn't easy at first, the oldest daughter wanted mom and dad back together and she would complain about everything. She actually complained that I made scrambled eggs once while camping instead of poached like her mom? Long story short, I became her best ally and we grew very close because I cared more about the kids then their dad. He passed away, and their mom and I remained friends. Just choose wisely. Not all hope is lost - also, read the purpose driven life!

  • With that attitude, yea.. you're not going to get many dates. Being a parent is tough. Maybe looking at dating sites and putting yourself out there, you may even be able to find a single mother who's ready for more. You never know until you try. But keep in mind, no matter who you may meet those three kids are your top priorities. And for any woman who comes into their life, you need to make certain that she's not only ready to be your partner, but a parent.

  • Guess you should have thought that having kids thing through a little better.
