    At 32, I'm Not A Father And I'm Okay With It

    I don't mind not having any right now, biological or adopted.  It's not one of my goals at the moment.  There are still many things that I want to do that I feel I couldn't if I had kids.  I do wonder what it would be like though.  Even more, I wonder when I...

    No Kids Or Wife But A Small Part Of Another Family.

    I am 45, no wife or kids. I have a stable career, am financially secure and have been told that am handsome. Better than being told I look like an ogre. I guess the main reason for being alone is that many years ago back in 1992, my girlfriend and daughter were killed in an auto...
