    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

    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...
