Dating a divorced father
Maybe a guy who had a little more responsibility in his life would be less, well, stupid about the whole dating thing.
In my experience, never-married guys without kids do things like get a four-leaf clover tattoo on their leg, decide they don’t like it, and then follow it up with the rest of the Lucky Charms to make it “better.” Or send jerk-off videos that look like they were shot in a Mc Donald’s bathroom, or ghost but still watch your Instagram stories.
