The men also treated her as less able to make a commitment because she was not a mother and didn’t wish to become one.
I think if I was still single, I’d strongly consider moving to a more childfree-friendly place.But just like a formulaic movie plot, they all wanted kids. Age had something do with it: I was in my early 30s. And I would very nicely tell them they were dating the wrong woman, extricate myself, and move on. Two different, otherwise wonderful, handsome, and brilliant men said they "understood" after I opened up about my fears.These men were in their mid-to-late 30s and early 40s. And then they each promptly sabotaged the birth control that I was very strict about.I know you don’t have a magic wand, so I just have to play the hand I’ve been dealt.I’m willing to take a risk by contacting women who list that they are “not sure” about wanting children.
