    Just Turned 40

    ~ I grew up wanting to be a wife & mother. That's all I wanted. While all my friends & classmates were talking about being singers, actors, firemen, & doctors.... All I wanted was to fall in love, get married & have a family of my own. Through all my struggles with depression...

    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??

    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.

    The purpose of a woman is to live her life the way she wants to- not to have children because it is her "purpose."
