..I know many guys shy away from dating single moms, so I'm wondering how true it is with the reverse situation. I'm single, my ex-fiance and I have a son. We both have jobs, both take some days of the week to take care of him. I'm not looking for a long term relationship for awhile, and definitely don't want to give my son a stepmom, his mom is great. In fact, I wouldn't really let women know that I am a father, or get a woman I'm dating involved in his upbringing.
