Real talk… it takes A LOT of work to raise a kid by yourself. Well, at least raise them right. So all of our respect to the single moms out there (and single dads… but this post isn’t about you).

Yes, it’s super hard raising a kid by your lonesome, and sometimes that takes you out of the dating pool for unfair reasons.

These 11 guys share the reasons why they just can’t bring themselves to date single moms…

1. Yeah, now THIS is a good reason.

I’m sure you could find a non-judgmental single mom, goofball.
