@ASTRAEA, Hi! Interesting topic.  Yes.  I've dated men who specifically preferred to date me because I do not have children.  However, coming from a large family and having been a surrogate parent to my 5 siblings, there was a lot in common but...there seemed to be confusion about my parental credentials.

Singles Biases

Message 2 of 2

Based on your experience, do you think that previously married singles, and especially those with children, may date singles who've never been married & have no children .. but tend to only get serious with singles who've had a "family experience" similar to theirs?



I've dated several men for a while, who were divorced & had children, but in the end they wound up getting serious with & marrying women who had also been divorced & had children.
