Dating obstacles as a single parent

You know, I still have my desire to be out and to meet men, but now that whole process is totally different because, you know, I cannot just bring somebody home. I've just basically set up a rule for myself that I would allow myself the time to meet men in the world, and they would have to pass certain criteria before they come home. And right now, very few people come home. My kids do not meet men that I am dating unless the person has reached the point where either he will be a friend for a long time or I see the potential of him being a father. That's a big deal. Not every guy you meet--you might be attracted to that person--but not every guy you meet is going to be someone who has that father potential, the ability to translate to not only be your lover and your friend but a father to your children. That's a big deal.
