Does having 3 kiddo's mean I'll be forever single?

Just that really... I'm 33, have 3 DC's (9, 6 & 2)...

Would guys be genuinely put off by this and run for the hills? sad

In a word, no.

I happily went out with a mum of 3 a couple of years ago. I'm a dad of two myself.

It'll be harder but, not a no at all. I think dating people with children will be easier from experience, as they'll understand they won't be at the centre or your universe & will be generally easy & not hard work. Good luck flowers

DH's ex has 3 kids and he had none.

She's now happily married to someone else.

It does happen smile

When I met dh he was 31 and no dc.
I was ten years older with 10.
Happily married now with a toddler!!
5 years and going strong.
He says he felt privileged to be allowed into our family and works hard to maintain relationships with all of them!
I can honestly say he has never had a fall out with any of them.
It's not about anyone 'taking you all on' it's about finding someone worthy of sharing your family with!!

Remember Some single men will have dc themselves so will know what it's like to be a parent. And as people get older most have a past so I don't see why even a man without dc would automatically run for the hills.

My cousin's wife had 2 dc when they met and they've been married for years with one of there own now too

I've got 2 kids and my bf has three. I was single for five years before I met him. We moved in together this year and are both really happy. So yes, give it time, but when the right man comes along the fact you have kids won't be an issue.
