I understand how much of an asshole that makes me sound like, but after meeting this woman, I am so torn.More specifically, my question is should I give up on this woman because she has a kid?The single parent dilemma is felt the hardest by the children, and as a product of such a household I am lucky enough to have this insight in my dating life.Many guys just don’t know how to deal with a child that isn’t theirs and it becomes immediately evident to the child, even when the mom is disillusioned into thinking that the guy is perfect.

Most single moms remarry within five years of the divorce, according to the 2006 U. Census Bureau report "Remarriage in the United States." Before you can marry her, though, you have to win her trust and love in a dating relationship.
