As a screenwriter, I don’t know if you live in LA or not, but this is a town where people don’t grow up for a really long time.

I got married at 35 and had kids at 37 and 39 and I was ahead of most of my friends.

but dating when you have FOUR kids is like the Mt Everest of the dating world!

It seems almost impossible for men to see past that.

You should just find a guy who is looking for a Brady Bunch family, who sees sex as the icing on the cake instead of the cake itself. Today, I’m giving you my new book, “Believe in Love – 7 Steps to Letting Go of Your Past, Embracing the Present, and Dating with Confidence.” and it’s going to forever change the way you view dating, men, and relationships. That said, you are right, there are a few men out there that want to blend a family.

Hi, There are still so many men in Los Angeles that are on their 2nd and 3rd marriages to much younger women and they have kids. I have read profiles of men I want to contact but am stopped because they state they prefer women with children.

I was married for ten years, have four beautiful boys under 9 and have a very fulfilling and successful career.

My life is happy, but I really would love to share it with someone…Dear Christina, Before I give you the pep talk you need, let me first acknowledge the painful truths that you’ve eloquently outlined above. Having four kids under the age of 9 is a huge handicap.I’d try to spin it in a slightly more positive way, but I can’t.Put yourself in their shoes and it’s pretty easy to see.The fact that you’re caring, kind, loyal, warm, and intelligent means that you have a lot going for you and will ultimately make a guy very happy.Over the next week, two of my boys have birthdays that end in “teen.” Today, Jonah stepped fresh and eager into his thirteenth year. I feel like I finally understand why I had to go through the baby and toddler years: This is the reward. Our boys need to know what is absolutely ok, and what is absolutely not.
