1) Looking for help with my Kids (D.C.)
Single dad looking for help with his twin 2 yr old with dining out, shopping, hiking, and many other fun things that I feel like I'm missing out! This is not an ad for hookups or sexual motives. I have my girls 3 day a week and I hate to stay home especially with cold weather near. I have tried so many times to take my girls to lunches, dinner, zoos, shopping, etc..Not something that's easy and it kinda takes away from the fun when trying to juggle both of them. This is ad is exactly what it says but will pay at least $10.00 an hour plus meals out and other expenses. Yes, including drinks when dining so be at least 21. This is not a nanny position since I already have one but rather a Dad's assistant, better yet a friend of daddy that likes to help.
Here's the tricky part, since I am paying cash each time for this and will be seen publicly with my help I ask that you be put together, hygienic, experienced or loves kids, has own car, doesn't eat two entrees or get hammered since it's free, not a plus size (sorry) since I enjoy hiking with them, must must a sense of humor since my girls love to see daddy laugh. Do not respond if you are married or attached since all of our time will be out in public with me and my kids. Would not want a husband or boyfriend going apesh#*! cause you were spotted with another man.
A little about me, professional single dad that lives in Fairfax (Fairlakes). Goofy, very goofy. Very laid back and easy to get along with. Hours will vary so don't quit your day job. Any questions feel free to email me. Thanks for looking.

2) RE: Looking for help with my Kids (D.C.)
Something does not seem right about this man's ad. I know that you stated very clearly that you aren't trying to do anything bad but that's what makes me even more suspicious and reading through your ad makes me very curious. For example you mentioned that the woman should not be a plus size..what does that have to do with anything? And why does the woman have to be single? If her husband or boyfriend knows what her job entails, he shouldnt get jealous. And yes I realize that twins are alot to handle, I've babysat twins in the past too, but THOUSANDS of parents of twins learn to juggle twins on their own. If you really are a single dad of twins you need to learn how to go out in public with them by yourself, learn how to discipline them correctly so they don't become too much for you to handle.You mention that drinks are included so the woman has to be 21, well what makes you think the woman would want to drink? not everybody in this world drinks! Just something in this ad does not seem right, so LADIES be VERY CAREFUL!! I wouldn't reccomend any woman take this job. If he really does turn out to be a single father, well, then hes gotta learn how to do things on his own.
