Topics: childless men and dating

Further, if you’re not a kid person or don’t want kids, you should not date a woman with kids to see if you’ll change your mind. This is not a video game that you can turn off when you decide you do not like how the game is playing out. That is a personal decision you should figure out long before you involve a woman and her child in your life. Save the games for the rest of the single people in the world who do not have the responsibility of looking out for the emotional well-being of themselves and their child.

I’m always surprised at how few people discuss this topic upfront. Some women with children do not want any more kids, and this is an awkward conversation to have after you have already exchanged “I love yous” or “I dos.” If you want one or two kids and she already has one or two kids, this is a conversation you should have sooner rather than later. In addition, if you do not want any (biological) kids of your own, do not assume that just because she has one or more child from a previous relationship that she does not want anymore with you.

What do you think? Should a man without kids hesitate to date a woman with kids? If you are a step parent or single mother, what advice would you offer a man to know if he is ready to date a woman with kids from a previous relationship?

Voluntary childlessness , also described by some as being childfree , is the lifelong voluntary choice to not have children. This includes avoiding having biological, step, or adopted children.

The usage of the term "childfree" to describe people who choose not to have children was coined in the English language late in the 20th century. [1]

In most societies and for most of human history choosing not to have children was both difficult and undesirable. The availability of reliable contraception along with support provided in old age by systems other than traditional familial ones has made childlessness an option for people in developed countries , though they may be looked down upon in certain communities.

I would prefer to date someone without kids (there seems to be less complications), but I am finding out that the older I get, the more likely a guy will have kids. It seems NOT having kids is an anomaly nowadays.

Assuming you ve been honest and the man you re dating knows you have a child, he ALSO knows that if things were to get serious there WOULD be a child in his future. Why would you dump him if he knows you have a child and still wants to date you and the relationship is good?
