"May I ask what's in it for a man? He has to take care of someone else's child, which he had no part in, and as a child is a substantial financial concern, may be the only child he ever can afford."
"I think you're missing the point. I'm not looking for a man to take care of me or my child, I've never thought, much less written, anything to that degree.
I don't want a man to fix me or to provide for me or to take care of my child. At the time that I wrote this I just wanted to finally find a guy that would accept me--all of me. My child just happens to be part of the package deal.
Every woman comes with a package. Some have family issues, some have financial issues, some have mental or emotional issues. The wording of your question makes me think you're a man who considers a child an issue.
Thankfully I've since found a man who doesn't see my child in that light and thankfully there are other men out there who are willing to accept the children of others WITHOUT asking "What's in it for me?" because if they ask themselves that in the first place, they have no business in a relationship.
Relationships are about giving to one another, not about making sure you get enough out of it to justify the time and effort."
