Put off Relationships.

Reading MN is putting me off having a relationship.

I know it's not real-life but it must be some reflection.

The resentment on the step-parent forum is one of the things that has put me off.

Unless there is a woman out there who, won't object to my children coming first, and that I spend a lot of time with them, doesn't mind my love of beer, and my love of sports I reckon I'm going to be single for a bit longer yet.

Just enjoy singledom and all its benefits. Why look for trouble.

Oh shush lol

Why would you deliberately post to be offensive?

What's the point?

Isn't that against the guidelines?

And I'm still on Mumsnet.

I name-changed as I had an email from MNHQ that my posts were getting reported. And that I was targeting posters.

I've searched my posts and I've seen a lot worse. I had one deleted.

I've had 100s of posts since and no problems at all. Basically I think I was being goaded to try and get me banned.

Things, he came back on 17 september...

Anyone else just happy being a dad? I go on dates etc but I'm happy not being in a relationship and it just being me & my son.

Sorry should have popped *'s before and after that as it was a quote

Didn't even know there was a dadsnet shock

the OP won't be answering you because

1) this is an old thread

2) he is banned for being an arse

HTH

ROFL

What have I started? blush

Nah, don't go...

Noididnt Wed 19-Sep-12 06:36:08

And as it looks like Dadsnet has been wiped out of all useful existence.

I'll disappear back into anonymity.

I'm the OP.

Sorry, didn't get banned at all.

Just name changed as Fathers were being goaded to react to try and get them banned.

Ha. That's what happens when you post late at night when your brain cells have gone to sleep!! grin

There's hope for you yet. OP. I met DP online. We both have kids. The kids come first. We drink beer together. We've watched football and rugby together and messed up golf. We're both in your neck of the woods!!

It only takes one person to make only dating worthwhile, and a lot of it is down to the site you choose.

Personally I hated match, full of international jet setting business owning sports car driving arseholes looking for someone to travel the world with.

I just wanted someone with a sense of humour who would play knockabout on the local field. I got him, but not from match! grin

Agreed on NRP, people are obsessed with putting labels on everything.

Oh and Technoking I'm on MN and my life is great. smile

MIL and DIL relations:

She trreats dh like a child that she knows best cos she is older, that my home is her property cos she looks after dh as he is her child, that she loks aftter dh better than me, that she is better than me and the most annoying is that she can be disrespectful to me but as soon as i enforce my boundries its ww3 and she trys to involve the whole family. Its all about control and power and being Alpha in the family lol

So MIL are lovly but mine is a pita.

Well you've took a leap of indignation then.

I loathe the term Disney Dad, it's always aimed at NRP's on here so my dig was at the poster saying it to me. Not at NRPs.

Too subtle perhaps.

I also don't like the term non-resident-parent either.

WhoWhatWhereWhen Sat 11-Aug-12 08:21:09

I'm not the NRP so I'm not a Disney Dad. I'm the Dad.

OP I'm a NRP I am not a Disney Dad, your little comment is the most insulting I have ever read on MN, disgusting.

I think you've got a great attitude about what's important to you, Changlingz, and what you're looking for (and not looking for) in a relationship. Internet dating can be very hit and miss, but there really are some 'hits' out there.

I also don't think you need to compromise on your opinions about parenting. Sometimes on dating sites things aren't stated outright, i.e. when a woman feels strongly about putting kids first, because - as a sometime internet dater myself of a certain age - there might be a certain fear that she will be overlooked: women tend to become less 'viable' as they hit forty; sure enough, when I turned 40 last year, about a third of the prospects I had on my profile disappeared because I had exceeded that magical, child-bearing age, apparently. hmm

Sometimes you have to read between the lines, iyswim.

I might use this thread to ask questions.

Daughters-in-laws and Mother-in-laws there must be more to it.

There's only two people in the whole world who at one time despised my mum, and it was her two dils?

They don't now, but it was bizarre and did seem a territory thing.
