    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...

    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??

    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...

    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.
