    I Don't Have Kids Of My Own

    A few days ago, a customer at worked asked me if I had any children. When I said no ,she asked why not? My answer was "I never met anyone I wanted to have kids with". We both just laughed and that was pretty much the end of it. But the truth is that every time I met someone I...

    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...

    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...

    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...
