Do other women find this kind of overexaggerated declaration of devotion to his kid on an oline profile a turn-off?
Don't get me wrong. A man who takes care of his child is a wonderful man. I would want him to do this with me as well. My ex-bf has a son that he was very involved with in every way: raising, educating, providing for him. Never lacking anything. It wasn't a problem b/c his son was already grown when we met, mainly financial since he was in his last year of high school. My x-bf cont to help him financially through college. Now in med school still helping and we got together frequently for a meal together/went to important events/hosted parties for him and his friends. I realize this kind of involvement at this stage is much less than with an underage child but still.
But still, had he said that on his profile, I would find that offputting as well. When you're looking for a partner, you want the first impression to be that this person is going to put you high in his priority as well. I don't know did this guy think it's cute when a woman reads this? How cute, he loves his kid....awww.. Do guys think like this when a woman writes this in her profile? Or did he think this would showcase him as a good man?
IMHO, if he wanted to advertise himself as a good man, he could try to cater to the audience, here a potential partner who would want to be with a loving man as it applies to her. It would be assumed he's a good man if he's also good to her. No need to tell how crazy he is about his kid.
