I don’t know why there are so many beautiful babies every where I seem to go lately. I can’t even escape the cuties on Twitter because some mothers and grandmothers are tweeting pictures of their adorable angels! I have long ago pulled the cord out of my biological clock. Which is to say, I decided that as much as I adore children, motherhood would not drive my need to land a mate by a certain reproductively ideal age.
Now, as because I’m getting older, the men I am meeting are ready for children. They decided at some point before meeting/dating me, that fatherhood is pretty high on their list of things to do. I’ve seen it happen to many close friends. They go from being the single, carefree guy to the man who is picking out mini-jerseys of their favorite team for their future sons. It seems to happen overnight, but I’m sure it isn’t exactly the case.
Do you think men have biological clocks?
Do you think that the traits that it takes to make a great father are the same ones that it takes to make a good partner or husband?
Ladies, have you noticed that the men you meet are anxious to have children very soon?
I have been propositioned by a wonderful guy friend to have a child together. At the time, I scoffed at him and felt insulted. Then I heard about the woman he actually had a child with, and now I sort of get it. He was wanting to have a friendship and c0-parenting relationship with someone he trusted and respected.
I have to wonder if single men today are deciding that fatherhood is going to be more of a priority than becoming a husband?
How should women handle the men who have biological clocks ticking louder than theirs?
