As a single man in his 40s with no kids I can honestly say I am living the life I always wanted to. I never had any desire to have children. I don't hate kids. I just don't want to have them. A funny thing happens though which I think I should share. When I meet women occasionally they bring it up as if its a bad thing but I just explain totally honestly that I just never had the desire to have them and you know what? They get over it really quickly. Its never gotten in the way of dating anyone. I own a condo and have a steady job and a master's degree actually. So I tend to think that covers the thinking that I'm immature because I chose not to have children. How many immature people have the patience to go through graduate school? So I always say to each his own and I never try to push anyone in any direction, but for me I'm happy not having children.
