The dating game is hard. And there are certain things many of us shouldn’t stand for. But when it comes to children things can get a little tricky. We asked our Facebook and Twitter followers whether or not they would date a man with multiple children, why or why not and how many is too many. See what they had to say.

Steffon: I could date a man with multiple children but it depends on how many multiples and more importantly how many mommas!

Elizabeth: If you’re single one should have no more than one child – if you.have been married before two to three is acceptable.

Amber: Probably not, I don’t want someone with previous baby mama drama. Especially when he has six kids all by different females, it could be a red flag and indication that you’ll bare child never seven and he is gonna walk out the door.

LaydiBoss: The one guy that I dated had 7…but he took care of them all.

Taylor: Nope, not 1. It’s not the kids…it’s their mothers.

Tiffany: Nope. I don’t have any and I don’t want to deal with anybody else’s.

Darling: Hell no! I’m not dating a man with any children unless they are grown or very soon to be.

Faren: No,that’s the reason I broke up with my ex. He had a two year old when we met and a few months into our relationship he told me a girl he was casually sleeping with was pregnant. He wasn’t sure of the paternity but he assumes responsibility. That was too much for me since I don’t have any kids of my own.

Monise: The question was could you “date” not marry and become step-mom. LOL Maybe that’s why so many women are single. You are turning a date or two into a marriage.

Lindie: I dated a guy with 4. He was great dad and his kids adored me and I felt the same way about them. The kids came first and I was ok with that.

I’Am Royalty: I’d prefer none because I don’t have any. But Any more than 1 is too many for me. If there are more than one than I’d assume there would be more than one baby’s momma. And if he only has one baby momma with multiple kids I would wonder why he wasn’t willing to fight to keep his family together.

Rissalovingmygirls: I have. And I married him(my husband). I cant help he has a past and I had one. He made it very clear how he feels about me. He was younger then and now he is older and mature and LEARNED his mistakes. He tells his eldest son every chance he gets about the importance of safe sex and not to chase the CAT!

Stephanie: The number of women he has gotten pregnant is much more important (to me) than the number of kids he has…

Latasha: 1 is too many, I require a lot of attention and it’s just not a good look to be “jealous” of “daddy time,” which is on weekends.

Sasha: As long as he can financially take care of them & there’s no drama with the mom(s), I don’t see why not

Erica: No. 1 is is too many. I don’t want kids. I’m not willing to finance or raise someone else’s. No d!ck is worth the grief that his kids may bring. No thank you. I’m about reducing and eliminating chaos from my life, not add to it. The only exception to this is if the kids are adults, living on their own, and not financially dependent on their father to make ends meet.

Corinthia: I could, but it depends on the number of mothers. I can be with someone with 10 kids as long as all of them have the same mother, at the most 2 moms lol.
Deanne: Wouldn’t it depend more on how he treated his children and their mother/s? Does he support his children, is he involved in their lives? Does he put shoes on their feet, food on their table, coach their sports teams and teach them to brush their teeth? Does he speak well about the mother/s of his children? If not … Run.
