It's human nature to want to make a good first impression, and occasionally that leads potential dates to have a less-than-honest profile. Be patient, look carefully, and always take your time when getting to know someone.

There is a warmth and wholeness to single dads that men without children rarely possess. Another perk: You know what you're getting. A man's parenting profile is about as transparent of a resume as you'll find.
