If you're currently looking for love and not including single dads in your search, you're doing it wrong. You're not likely to stumble upon a more selfless or loving guy than one who has raised his kiddos on his own or mostly on his own. But hey, don't take it from us, take it from the guys themselves. We recently asked a handful of single dads to give us their best elevator pitch for dating one of their brethren. See what they had to say below. He's going to take things slow.
However, there are some downsides and certain things you need to keep in mind if you want it to work. While some women may look at children as baggage, no parent does. His kids are always going to come first. Too many people assume a single dad is a deadbeat dad. Like, really busy.

But having a nurturing relationship with a single father can also be rewarding. Despite it being a tricky business, here are a few reminders to help you build a relationship with a single dad.
