dating a guy with a child.

i've been meaning to blog about this for a while now. about a month, actually and it all started one stupid day at work. it's a long story, but i had to sit in a different section at work than i usually do and i ended up next to this guy and we really, REALLY hit it off. we flirted all day and texted all that night, then a couple days later he tells me we need to stop cuz he has a girlfriend of over a year. perfect. why do i bother liking anyone? anyway, that's beside the point. he mentioned a couple hours after knowing me that he had a 3 year old son, and that kinda made me step back. now, don't get me wrong, kids are an absolute blessing and i can't wait to have my own some day and i know that there are PLENTY of people my age with children, but i'm just not ready yet, and i feel like when you're dating someone with a child--you're almost like a step-parent and i sure as hell ain't ready for that!

what do you guys think? i mean, it's awesome that he has a baby and that he supports him, and i really honestly don't know if i would have pursued it any further had it turned out he didn't have a g/f. i mean, as far as i'm concerned, i won't be ready to deal with any children until i'm done with school and married and playing step mom is a big responsibility. kids are great, but i'm just not at a point in my life where i feel like i can handle that.
have any of you guys been in a similar situation? what would you do?
