Dating Sites and the "Want Kids" Box

One amusing facet of dating again as a adult is the proliferation of on-line dating sites. One question on most profiles is whether you want kids. Many single women looking to get married also will want to have a family. Not all but many. When some see you have checked off you are done having kids it it obviously closes off some potential relationships.

This would never happen but can you imagine a box which would state "Can't physically have more kids but are you open to DI?" Not happening.

I am done no matter what. My kids are all I want unless I meet someone who already has kids. Is amusing thought though as it would the put issue out there and not have to worry about bringing it up later.

Oh, you could get so nuanced and complicated going down that route.

And then I think of all the other areas of life you could make nuanced and complicated on a dating profile like that.

It's a complicated world. I wish you luck adapting to it! It would be a shock to me.
