    Somewhere That's Green :)

    Yes, I'm single, but I long for the day when I can find the right person, get married and start a family. I hope it happens someday!

    It would not be smart

    for me to have children at all. Marriage or not. I am single because I want to be by myself for awhile so that I can get myself together.. Why would I do things to ruin that for myself? I like my body the way it is. I'm not having a child that would destroy it. I don't have to...

    Thinking Of Adopting

    I have been single for the last 15 years. I have found it difficult to meet and date people since my mother had a stroke in 2000. I have always wanted children but now think it is unlikely that I will meet and marry "the one". I'm considering just going ahead and either getting...

    I don't know; maybe the day will come.

    I will be in a relationship and have kids (at least a relationship). My family has all but given up on the kids aspect, but anything is possible I suppose if someone will respect and commit.

    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 Am Lonely,

    Currently single, but looking to get back into

    a long-term relationship again. I hope the next love I have is the last love of my life, and turns out to be my wife. I can't wait to have a family of my own, once I find the right woman.

    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??
