A friend of mine recently told me to meet the type of man i want i would have to move out of the city and find me a "cowboy"
This is a shame because i would swear that what i seek isn't difficult.

Guys responding....

Whats up???

My ex actually fighting with me told me that men reject women with children and this is why he leaves our child with me and doesn't want "weekend duty" Was that spite?

I know when you get burned it sucks but really!
Would you rather but living apart and dating or dating one women with the comfort of still having your own home?

I don't get this stuff.
I just don't

Not true - I was married to a country boy - and he left his wife and kids - and hasn't looked back!

Don't think a cowboy is going to be the only kind of guy who will make a good husband and father - look at the credits of each man individually - I know lousy fathers on both sides of the trail!

Besides us country girls don't want any competition!!!

Do not listen to your friend

You are being manipulated and messed around

And your ex is also denying his duties

Find yourself someone who is willing to be
mature enough to support you emotionally
like you and your children deserve

Try www.dating.com

Plenty of grown up men around there who like
ready made families

Get a minister or qualified marriage cousellor
in your area to intervene in your relationship
and can help you with what you are looking for

Do not open yourself up to abuse

Log in to www.allexperts.com and look under the
marriage category for a doctor Duff

She is a psych and will give you straight to the
point advice

I wasn't going to post here, but....
I am D'ed with four sons...I have no dating skills, and honestly it all makes me very tired, and smacks of the same rejection that my XW is sending out. Honestly, I don't care about kids, or no kids....you are being messed with to be sure....what a wonderful world.
I am NOT like that...I don't care what anyone else thinks, I will sit in the corner and eat my mac&cheese, and be quiet for my part, thank you very much, but...you don't have to.

This reminds me of Paula Cole's song: "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?" Good stuff.

Only if a cowboy is a man who loves God and does everything to glorify and honor God out of thanksgiving for what God has done for him. There are many of those out there that appeal to women because the world wants the wicked which is contradictory to what you are asking for.

What your XH did was out of spite. Though my parents are not divorced, my father gave my mother the same line to keep her home with him.
