Knowing that his teenagers would grow up and be adults (notice I didn't say "out of the house" necessarily - I'm not stupid), I feel that I would be able to have conversations with them and treat them like adults.
I hestitate dating guys with kids because I don't want kids, and a guy who has kids will always have to deal with his ex.
That said, I'd never be jealous of a man spending time with his children--that's what a father is supposed to do.
I am not "jealous" of the time he spends with his kids - I think it's fantastic and would expect it.
But I don't want the relationship to get serious and become the stepmom...
I never wanted to drive the kids to soccer practice, don't wanna meet with the teachers, generally like to limit my interactions with kids.

Alot of single girls that i know, have told me that they hesitate to date guys w kids, because their kinda selfish and dont like sharing the guys w his kids.
They get upset that on the weekends that the guys have their kids, they cant go out or do anything w them, do you single ladies, hesitate to date guys w kids?
I usually don't date guys with kids but not for the reasons you mentioned.
For me to see any potential in the relationship I need to know there won't be child-rearing responsibilities involved.
I made a conscious decision not to have children - for many reasons - and I don't want them, not by birth or by adoption or by default.
