Hi I’m 26, newly divorced with two kids. I started dating my ex wife before all these online Datong apps came out. So this is my first time trying out the whole online dating thing. My question is when is the best time to tell women about being divorced and have children? Bio, when we are initially messaging, 1st date, 2nd date? I think I know the answer but I just wanted to get y’all’s feedback.

I think you should put that you have children in your bio, but you don’t have to worry about putting that you are divorced. You can let that come into conversation after a 2nd date I would say.

I would include it in my bio… “Divorced father of two…etc.” but don’t put that at the beginning.
Like it or not most online dating initially begins with a great profile photo.
If someone doesn’t find (you) attractive they’re not going to bother reading your profile.
Secondly if someone is primarily interested (casual dating) or nothing “serious” your parental status is unimportant.
Ultimately it’s important to know what it is YOU want from an online dating site. It pays to research as well.
Not all sites are equal. There are also niche dating sites specific for single parents if you’re looking for that compatibility.
Single Parent Love, Single Parent Meet, and Single Parents Match are just a couple of them to consider.
Since you’re just starting out you may want to read a few how to articles or books regarding online dating.

Keep in mind online dating sites are just a tool for meeting new people.
You’re responsible for having your own screening process.
Keep your options open by dating multiple people until you mutually agree to become exclusive.

It’s a commendable attribute to be honest and open about your situation up front. Age, occupation, children and present relationship with the children’s mother ie. joint custody.
To avoid mentioning the past only means that the past will eventually come out and the seeds of distrust will sprout and grow.
But, as I have found, honesty in online dating via your profile can also invite defeat.
It is inevitable that as woman look at these profiles, they are looking for the “best” one and the “best one” is single, young, great occupation, great car owns a home and not close to Mommy. And no souvenirs from a previous marriage wherein the EX may show up.
Hence honesty places you on the “Love Ledger” whereby what you have to offer is weighted empirically against other ‘options”
That’s the case for most, not all, women AND men.
But honesty is still the best policy. You may strike Gold. Take that step of integrity.
