They may worry that mentioning a kid would turn off a potential match.
Sometimes, a person’s selfish goal of finding a romantic mate can cloud their judgment.
They believe that they are a good person and have a lot to offer a potential match that may happen upon their dating profile.
However, based on insecurities that they have or a series of negative experiences that they may have had with people who found their dating profile, they may feel the need to avoid mentioning that they have a kid.
They believe that this isn’t a subterfuge that they intend to keep up for long.
They truly believe that they are good and would have a lot to offer a potential match.
It is just that, they may worry that in mentioning that they have a kid in their dating profile, someone out there who could be a great potential match for them may not give them a chance.
Again, this mindset may be based on an insecurity that they have or on experience.
Perhaps, when they initially joined the dating site, they did mention that they have a kid on their dating profile.
However, by so doing, they may have noticed that they simply weren’t getting the kind of attention from the best potential matches as they had hoped.
In the moments that they did receive some attention from a potential match, they may have noticed that the interested party was simply not attractive.
Perhaps the person was overweight, too old, had too many kids of their own or kids who were much older, etc.
They may have encountered this so often on the dating site that they decided to remove the fact that they have a kid.
Again, they believe themselves to be good.
In their rationale, they are merely doing this temporarily in the hopes of getting better matches.
However, they truly believe that the fact that they have a kid will be something that they reveal to a good match at an appropriate point in their correspondence.
They don’t believe that they will wait too long to reveal this information.
They are merely hoping that they can have a few good exchanges with a potential match that they find attractive and of value.
They hope that in these early exchanges, this potential match will get to see their personality.
This is what they are hoping for.
They just want to have a chance to get this potential match to see their personality and what they have to offer before casting judgment on the fact that they have a kid.
Again, in this person’s mind, they are merely omitting the fact that they have a kid so as to get better matches, in the hopes that a great match will take the time to allow the process of getting to know each other to unfold naturally.
The idea is that this match will be able to judge them as a person as opposed to a person who has a kid.
This is often how people who have a kid justify why they avoid mentioning that they have a kid on their dating profile.
They truly believe that they aren’t necessarily doing anything wrong.
After all, they will reveal that they have a kid to a potential match in time.
They just want a chance at getting better matches.
