Re: dating for fathers?
You have better shots with women who already have kids obviously. But you do need to formulate a strong frame when it comes to the kid subject with women who do not have kids. Which basically means you have to have a way to twist it into a positive thing for them rather than a negative. Here are some ideas (building off of what you have said)...
" I have never had a more fulfilling life than when I had kids. It made me grow up faster than most men and I see the world as a worthwhile place to be in. Rather than living on the fast track with no goals. It's a great experience to be able to pass on your knowledge and life lessons to someone, preparing them for the real world. I can't stand when women hear that I have kids and automatically assume that I want a replacement mother. It's not like I have AIDs! Kids are a natural part of everyone's lives."
You don't have to say this verbatim, but this might help to shape it in a positive light. Hope this helps and good luck.
