    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...

    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 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,

    I have taken time since I have it. I try to enjoy it. Though I sometimes wonder what kids would be like if they were with me. I try to learn about them. I sometimes get really lonely. I like the time that I have to myself on the other hand. I enjoy kids also though. I am...

    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??

    Thinking Of Adopting
