Well its hard with a kid.. I have one too. A lot of guys have told me that they just don't want to or are not ready to be a father yet. Keep looking and don't just take any old man.. get one that will be good to you and your kid. Theres one out there. You just have to find him. Best of luck.

I think the fact you do have a kid is tough on some guys because they don't feel they're ready to be a father. But at the same time, there are guys out there, even at your age, who would be really to settle down, and willing to take on the responsibilities and challenges of being a father.

Don't give up hope, and continue to look for that right guy. It may take time, and it always does when looking for the right guy. Just be patient, and know that there is someone out there for you.

renee, i think it was very mature of you to take that time to yourself. how long have you been looking for someone? the 2 year old would scare away people who aren't serious and just want a fling. do you want a fling or someting serious?? if it's a fling you're after there's no need to mention your 2 year old. if you're after something serious make sure that you like the guy, no one said you have to mention the kid during the first few dates. but make sure you're not hiding it for too long. but once he sees the real you, he will then make his decision if it's worth it or not.
