I'm not quite ready to date but I like peeking at the OLD sites to see what's out there. I was just on POF and it just amazes me the guys who start their profile with sentences such as, "My daughter is my world", "My son is my #1 priority and will always come first", "I spend all my free time with my kids", etc. etc. I mean, it's great these guys are such devoted fathers and I'm sure if I had a child he or she would be MY #1 priority but to just throw it in someone's face like that on a dating site, in the first sentence no less, totally turns me off. Not only does it sound defensive it's like stating, "Hello potential partner. Just to let you know upfront you will never be #1 in my life, you will never be my priority, and you may only get a crumb of my free time here and there."
It's too bad because some of these are probably good guys but like I said I dont' read any further when I read that.
