Divorced dads I've dated have bailed on things from Saturday night movie plans to major events in my life when babysitters backed out or their exes called for last-minute back-up.

The other one I'd already been on several dates with when we went out the first weekend in May.
In the past year alone, I've had two guys tell me that between their demanding jobs and their children, they didn't have time for a relationship.
