    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.

    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'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??
