Being an uncle has sort of softened my stance a bit, but I still don't particularly like kids. It's sort of like parties: I'm pretty good at dealing with them for a little while, but it drains the life out of me. I won't rule out dating someone with a kid (or kids) entirely, but they are a bit of a turn-off. It'd have to be a pretty good-tempered kid with a rather amazing mother, I think.

Probibly not. I perfer more mild mannered ladies, and If your single with a kid, you are under no definition mild mannered.
That takes some serious balls mate, props to the ladies who manage this without going insane, that's not easy.

Yes, I'd have respect for you. But more like the respect I'd have for a good boss and not as a lover.

The kid has about a 10-15% survival chance.

Except for if it's a girl then hell no because teenage girls are IMPOSSIBLE to raise

Sure. Takes more than simply having a kid to scare me off; however, I guarantee that I'm willing to be the "auntie from hell," should the kid be an obnoxious brat.

Why of course I would. I can't honestly see why I should not. No matter what the backstory might be, when someone get a child that child becomes a big and essential part of them, and I can not in all honesty claim to love someone if I am not, at the very least, prepared to love their child as well.

I can respect that others seem to have more reservations against it, especially if you factor in young age and/or behavior patterns, but I do not share those myself. Being an uncle more or less my whole life, and right now to a total of 18, from newborn to almost my age, I would think it is safe to say that I am used to kids. I'm very fond of family and stuff.

So if everything else is as it should be, for me, a kid might actually be a pluss. I do want family life and if the kid is biologically mine or not, that does not matter much, I would love it like my own regardless. At least that's how I feel about it. And I refuse to believe that I am unique in this regard. There should be plenty of others who feel the same way too.

It depends on the people in question.

It would really depend on a few things. How mature the person was, and if they had a normal or toxic relationship with the other childs' parent. I've run across way too many females that have kids and pawn them off on their own parents to raise because they've felt the children were burden and that always bugged the heck out of me.

The opposite is pretty true too. Single parents have to be real picky about dating because they have to make sure it's someone mature enough to handle the situation. As the fact you have to consider the kid and the person, and not just the person you date. Frankly, not too many people want to be thrust in that kind of role.

Personally, I wouldn't mind dating a person with a kid as long as that person were a decent individual.

I don't date. They would get me for cruel and unusual punishment if I did. I am currently working on me and once I get all of my baggage in order then who knows. I do know if I truly liked someone it wouldn't matter if they have children or not. When you care about someone you have to care about everything: the good, the bad and all that's between. Not that I consider children bad. It's just that getting into a relationship when children are involved can be hard. It's not easy playing the step parent and I don't care how good a kid is most of them resent a stranger coming into their family. It would take a lot of work and patience that's for sure.

No. Hate kids. Also, since i am rather young, that would mean that the persons kids must be younger than me. Which is a double issue. The younger the child, the more i hate them (This only applies from toddlers and up).

Been on both sides of this one since I was a young pops. At this stage of the game, I'm kinda in the same zone as the original stray, I'd be shocked to actually find a woman I'd want to date these days, so the matter of does she have kids or not doesnt significantly enter in to the equation. If she impressed me enough to want to date her in the first place, then likely she'll have decent kids that wont make me want to [place favorite atrocity here].

I'm enjoying my life right now, I can do pretty much whatever the hell I want whenever I want, so *shrugs* Not much incentive lol, I am not controlled by my sexuality, my consciousness is in charge in this house so I'm not compelled to endlessly p*hunt.

No. I hate kids and I hate people who talk about their kids, so no.
