    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...

    Living With Regret

    Hey! Dad? Can I Borrow the Keys?

    I really want to be a be a dad.

    But I have really bad luck with relationships. Is there any women who would want to have kids with me? Either raising them together as single parents or maybe even ending up together. Who knows. Message me

    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...

    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...

    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...
