Why it sucks to be a single father dating!

OKAY,

    I'm a little revved up right now. I just started dating a few weeks ago and can't tell you how disappointed I am in what's out there. The dating culture now sucks for us single fathers! 

    I put myself on bumble because I heard it was better than tinder. I ended up matching and talking to a girl, yes "girl", named Ashleigh. I spent a good day and a half talking to her and things were moving towards meeting up. I told her I was unable to meet this weekend because I have my kids. Her reply:

    "There's the bomb" Followed up with "Should have put that shit in your bio bro"

    Okay first off, I'm a sensitive father, so when someone says "shit" directed towards knowledge of my children, I'm going to get in "Grant is about to fuck your world up" mode. AND since when does having children mean you are less of a catch? You would think it would increase your worth, apparently not.

    Secondly: I am extremely active on social media anywhere form Instagram, YouTube etc. I linked EVERYTHING to my bio, stating to check out my social media. My children are EVERYWHERE and put those links on my dating profile. Not my fault you didn't do your due diligence before "matching" with me. I even have a video of my 3 year old daughter and me doing make-up on YouTube. 

    So I tell this girl, "I am in my 30's, have two amazing jobs, somewhat attractive and handsome, very kind and an amazing person (totally a giver). Of course a woman saw my worth, married me, and had children with me." 

    I gave my opinion "If a man in his 30's has no children, hasn't been in a committed relationship (marriage or long term) and just wants to have fun and dodge commitment and that's your version of a "catch" it's no wonder you're single"

    She fired back with: "I know a lot of guys in there 30's without kids"

    "Slow clap"....Great for you hunny! And how has that been working out for you sweetheart? 

    BLOCKED!

    Is this what it has boiled down to for us single fathers? Where the populous of women still on the market are repulsed at us having children if they themselves do not? 

    I work at least 60 hours a week and have my children 50% of the time because I'm a fucking super dad and take care of my kids. I also, since the divorce, have been building a business and working hard to provide for them, myself and my future wife. I'm sure most of you reading this article do too!

    So for all you "women" out there who are discounting us single fathers, it's your loss! We are an amazing group of people who have chosen to be part of our children's lives, work hard for them and their future and always put them first. 

    While this experience has totally demoralized me from putting myself out there emotionally, I am determined to find someone meaningful who will choose me. I want to share my world with someone, and yes that means my children too. 

    For all the single fathers out there, I feel your pain and just remember, we are fucking rocks stars! Know your worth and fuck everyone else who doesn't see it.
