A frustrated man left a comment here several months ago asking, to paraphrase, âWhere are all these childfree and childless women you write about?â I passed the question along to the masses on Facebook and Twitter. No help.
Logically, single NotMoms are everywhere that Moms are. Â Well, almost. Church, workplaces, malls, social clubs and bars. But since some women without kids say that they canât find their peers, it makes sense that a guy looking for no-kids love would have the same complaint.
Through hearsay from several women, I know the super-sized dating sites like Match.comÂ and OK CupidÂ offer a âchildlessâ filter box for users to check and Presto! youâll only review other people without children. Thinking back, those women are actively dating online, but none is a NotMom.
Confessing that I havenât been single, or on a date, for..well, decades, it makes sense to me that male or female, datingâs hard enough without the dread of confessing that you donât want or canât have children. It can be done, of course, but itâd be great to avoid the hurt of finding a great person, then losing them after The Big Discussion.
Results for a Google search of âonline dating childlessâ unearthed more than 10 questioners on Yahoo, Reddit, etc. hoping to find a resource limited to childless and childfree adults. Some of those posts go back to 2006, so people have been looking for a long time.Â I did find a free dating/networking site,Â No Kids Passions, part of the niche-focused Passions Network.Has anyone out there ever found a date on No Kids Passions or another online site?
What advice can you share with women (and men) about finding compatible dates online or off?
