A frustrated man left a comment here several months ago asking, to paraphrase, “Where are all these childfree and childless women you write about?” I passed the question along to the masses on Facebook and Twitter. No help.
Logically, single NotMoms are everywhere that Moms are. Well, almost. Church, workplaces, malls, social clubs and bars. But since some women without kids say that they can’t 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.com and OK Cupid offer a “childless” filter box for users to check and Presto! you’ll only review other people without children. Thinking back, those women are actively dating online, but none is a NotMom.
Confessing that I haven’t been single, or on a date, for..well, decades, it makes sense to me that male or female, dating’s hard enough without the dread of confessing that you don’t want or can’t have children. It can be done, of course, but it’d be great to avoid the hurt of finding a great person, then losing them after The Big Discussion.
Results for a Google search of “online dating childless” 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. I did find a free dating/networking site, 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?
