    I Am Going To Be Alone

    I never planned this but time flew by so fast. I was cursed with an overbearing Mother who wanted to hold onto me forever!!! She did not want to be lonely but instead now I will be alone with no one there for me. This is a form of child abuse. I was too good to her and she could...

    I am childless so I did not expect to be

    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...

    I Have Never Craved Children

    I am 39 and have never craved children enough to be willing to give up my freedom. During my 20's I found there to be something far more interesting to be doing other than having a baby and making a huge sacrafice which would have a large impact on my life and limit my free time...

    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...
