    Unbelieveable

    I'm 31 been married and divorced. I have no kids and I like it that way. I love kids to their core.... I just don't have the desire to be a mother right now. I know it is not the "norm" but it is true. I teach every day and I am so glad to come home to a nice peaceful house.

    I'm single with no children

    and I'm ok with that. I like being an auntie, but other than that I have no desire to be a mom. The problem is trying to find a guy to date that doesn't already have kids and doesn't want kids. Where are you guys??
