    Living With Regret

    I am not giving up on becoming a father. I do not have a wife or girlfriend to even be the mother of my children. I am extremely remorseful and ashamed. My dream was to have a family.  I will have one someday, but it will have to be soon. Im no longer a youngster...

    My biological clock has officially started

    ticking... As I slowly reach my mid 20s, the idea of going out for a drink and looking for random women to hook up with seems dull. I've had my share of alcohol. I've had so much fun and made so many amazing memories. I experimented with drugs for fun. I did everything a wild...

    Should Accept It ...

    I know I should accept that I will never be a father. When I was 8 years old, I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, and even then, I said I wanted to be a daddy. That has been my dream. And over the years, I've seen other people achieve it ... sometimes when they don't...

    I keep feeling the urge to become a daddy,

    I want to be the kind of daddy to play with my child, make sure they're having fun. I want to have a good rather-kid-relationship with them. I also believe in not hitting your children, that'll only give bad results. I really really want to have a child, I want to do the father...

    One Day Perhaps

    It amazes me how I still don't have a child yet. I mean let's be honest, I didn't always practice safe sex. Now though, I'd really like to have one. At work when I see my employees it kind of makes me sad, I see the joy in these new fathers faces and not being able to feel...

    Hey! Dad? Can I Borrow the Keys?

    Hey! Dad? Can I borrow the keys? I may never know what these words feel like. :( I'm forty one, divorced, and lonely. If I met someone today, it would not be just to hang out, and though I've only been with one woman, and I really don't know how to approach a lady, I would...
