Not dating men with children
About a month or so into dating, he brought up something he said was important.He was 99.95% certain he would never want kids, and that he knew this was a deal-breaker for most women so he wanted to be upfront about it.Of course, he’s more worried about getting hurt than he is about hurting the woman, but we’ll leave that aside.
About a year ago I dated a guy who was dear-god near perfection.I had never really considered NOT having kids before.At first I was dismayed, but after some reflection told him we didn’t need to worry about that just yet and let’s just see how everything else goes.Not all women are looking for the One (or believe in the One for that matter), and not all women have considered the possibilities.
He was such a great man in so many ways & his reasons for not wanting kids were so sensible that I was willing to imagine a kid-free future. Besides, if you keep getting older you’ll basically be dating women past that age anyway.
I know you don’t have a magic wand, so I just have to play the hand I’ve been dealt.
