I am an independent mother of two children (meaning I am established, have stability, and take care of myself and my kids). I enjoy reading books on philosophy and ancient history, shopping, dining out, traveling, Casino's, watching movies, music, arts & crafts, and I love to laugh.
My children are my priority so they come first in my life. Because my children are so important to me I chose not to introduce them to anyone I might date unless it was a serious relationship. That is why I am so strongly oppose those who are posting photos of children on dating sites. I feel it is very wrong for someone to use their innocent child as a way to market themselves to not just people they may be interested in but to any all type of individuals who search profiles on dating sites. Still don’t think it’s wrong to “show off” your kids on here? If your child was an age where he or she understood dating sites and found that you posted a picture with them in it would they be okay with that? If you still feel it’s okay, what if your child’s mother (or for women who might read this, even though that’s not my interest but hey I see the bigger picture and I know they look and yes men are looking at other men’s profiles too, anyways what if your child’s dad) posted photo’s of your child/children on a dating site? Would you trust their judgment on who they were corresponding with and who they might introduce your child/children to? This is something I am very passionately against… and while I am on the topic I feel the ONLY person who should be in your photo(s) on a dating site is you... not your kid(s), not your family, not your friend(s), not your co-worker(s), not your ex, and so on. Respect other people’s privacy and put only yourself on display because this is after all a site specifically for dating not for social networking. Some things should remain private here.
