Jenny McCarthy, who has a ten-year-old son, has claimed she won’t date anyone who isn’t into kids. She learned that the hard way after being set up on a date with a guy who couldn’t stand children.
During a recent interview with “People” magazine over the weekend in Las Vegas, she talked of a horrible experience with a man. She said, “I was set up by a friend. I flew to the city this guy was in. That’s how much I believe in love. I checked into a hotel, got ready. I went to the restaurant and sat down. Five minutes – maybe two minutes into the conversation – he talked about how much he despised kids.”
He talked of hating kids yet went into the date knowing that Jenny is a mother? What a douche move. She said, “He wanted to set the tone that he wasn’t planning on being a substitute father but he was there for a good time. I didn’t even get to the check. I said, ‘Excuse me.’ I got up and grabbed my purse and walked out the door and flew home.
She added, “Because of that date I do a criteria check before every date. Number one is, ‘Do you like kids?’ And number two is, ‘Do you have kids?’”
I may be old fashioned, but I don’t know how I feel about single parents doing much dating in the first place. OR date – but don’t bring home every guy you go out with to meet your kids. If something were to ever happen to my marriage, I don’t think I could introduce anyone to my kids unless I was absolutely sure he was a good guy. It has to be so confusing for kids being in and out of random parent-figure’s lives.
