Consider that a large number of single dads are divorced. Before you think “too much baggage,” keep in mind that this is a guy who has already committed to marriage once before. That means he was bold enough to make the leap, and mature enough to recognize the value of a committed relationship. Even if his marriage didn’t work out—unless he was really burned by the divorce—he’s already got one up on the single, never married guys. And if he’s a dad, he’s more likely to want a long-term partner; 59% of the men surveyed said fatherhood has made them want a steady partner.
