I was sadly disappointed because apparently, women like I was; single, mid-30’s and CHILDLESS are freaks of nature. Here’s what I know now, that might be helpful for you, too… This is a sign that he is ready to take his relationship with you to a new level. For him, this is a REALLY big deal, because he’s hoping you are going to stick around. If you aren’t ready for this commitment, let him go before he gets here.
It seems that I missed the memo that said by the time I was 30 I needed to procreate so that when I got divorced I could be “normal” and be a single mom. It will only mean heart break for you, him AND his children, who may not understand why you aren’t there anymore.
Boy, was I wrong, and what a smack into reality I received!
Here’s the deal, when you are a single woman in her mid-30s, with no children, pretty much every man you are going to meet, that is your age, and you want to date is going to have children.
In general, if you have split relatively recently from you ex, then you need to tread still more carefully with your children.
This reduces the subsequent potential for conflict and for jealous feelings on your children’s part.But the truth is that things really can work out differently - a recent survey suggested that 92% of men would be ready to take on someone else’s children: in fact, they rather like the idea of a ‘readymade’ family.
