Following! In my late 20s and figuring out the whole thing with guys and my dealbreaker with not wanting kids!

The struggle.... after taking the pandemic off from dating I’m about to re-enter the market just shy of my 40th birthday (and 15 pounds heavier). My pool seemed to switch to bitter divorced men rather quickly. I mean I’m divorced but I’m not angry. The biggest red flag for me? Complaining about being behind on child support 🙄

I constantly deal with guys who don’t read profiles. I clearly put that I do not want kids, and I get guys all the time that like my profile and theirs says they want kids. It drives me crazy.

That's a newer feature - they didn't have that when I was using it a few years ago. Awesome!

I am in a long term relationship of 5+ years where I was very upfront about not wanting kids and SO said they were on board. Every now and then I check in to make sure we are still on the same page still, especially as everyone around us is having kids now. I recently asked the question again and they were like, well maybe I want one :( I'm so upset and don't know what to do. I am not sure if they just legitimately changed their mind (which would stink but understandable), or if they were secretly hoping I would change my mind this whole time. Kinda devastated

I was a stay at home mom for 10 years; had 4 children & helped my husband build a decent non legal business. I started my PI practice at end of 2019. I did great in 2020. Unexpectedly I developed inappropriate feelings for a mentor over zoom. We decided to stop working together and started therapy. I faced my horrible childhood trauma, gained confidence and realized how terrible my marriage is. Husband admits mistreating me & regrets taking advantage but thinks I’m unfair for wanting a divorce.
