I had to leave the group Childfree Chicks Confidential on facebook today. 😦 I love that group and being a part of it, but being around people who think the same as I do makes the way I feel about kids cement into my brain. I mean, I’m pretty stuck on the “Despise Children” setting anyway, but knowing that there are so many other women who feel the same way really tears away the handle on that switch so there’s no going back to “Kids? Whatever.”

The last post I read on that page is that one of the women thinks it’s cute to see a man holding a baby. Me? It’s actually pretty repulsive. For example, whenever I see my man, no matter what he’s wearing or what he’s doing, I can’t help but stare. I am incredibly attracted to him. But when his kid was here and ran into a wall and my man picked him up to comfort him… I almost couldn’t hide the scowl on my face. My man became incredibly unattractive just in that one action. If my man were to hold a puppy or a kitten, I’d still be completely attracted. But a kid? GTFO.

I’m so glad I have this blog. I’m not sure whether you all actually read these or they’re more like a diary, but my blog is safe. My man doesn’t even read the posts I WANT him to read, much less every post I create. And right now, I really appreciate that I can put all my true thoughts out here and I know I won’t hurt his feelings. Maybe it helps me to get my thoughts out. Don’t get me wrong, I want these thoughts to change. I love my man with my entire being. But the fact that he has a kid and claims another one as his own too… it feels like a punishment to me.

I’ve always said, “I’m not a Christian. I have a relationship with God.” The word Christian connotes a lot of judgment and hypocrisy. But my relationship with God fits me. But when I was having trouble finding a good man, I turned to God and asked Him to bring my perfect man into my life. I asked Him for specific things that I would like in a man. And weirdly enough, that’s when my man came into my life. A mutual friend of ours texted me and asked me if I was still looking for someone. My man had never spent free time with that friend before, and I hadn’t heard from that friend in well over a year. It just felt like my prayer had been answered when I went on that first date. But then he told me he has “kids”, and I only put it in quotes because only one of them is biologically his.

It’s no secret that I despise children. In fact, one of the first questions I asked my man is if he had kids, and honestly I should have walked away when he said yes. I really should have. But his personality is so perfect for me. I really feel like we’re supposed to be together. But the fact that he has kids? It feels like God opened up the sky and said “Here ya go. Here’s what you asked for. But fuck you for asking, your man has kids.” I feel like I’m being punished for asking for what I wanted. I thought that you’re supposed to ask Him for what you want. God knows trying to find a man on my own was just getting me heartbroken over and over.

I really don’t know what to do. I love this man, but the baby mama and the kids are killing me… What can I do? I don’t want all this drama with the BM and the kids… I want to be number one in his life. I deserve someone who puts me first…. but I don’t want to leave this one because I know there won’t be anyone else like him out there. And honestly, I don’t think there’s any changing how much I despise kids. That’s just the way I am.

To whoever is reading this, any advice is greatly appreciated.

  1. Fellow CFer here. The moment he told me that he had kids I would have walked away. Your only 2 options are to leave and pray that you find another guy who is just as great but doesn’t have children. Or stay and continue to let the BM and kids drive you crazy. Kids do grow up. Not sure how old his are but sooner or later they won’t need his constant attention. They will always be there though, no matter how old they get. And in the world now a days, kids live at home longer, move back home after a few years on their own because they can’t find jobs. They kill their credit and need the help of their parents. If you stay, you will ALWAYS have them in your life. The question you need to ask your self is, is he important enough to you for you stay and deal with it? Can you handle that being your life, for the rest of your life? Can you handle not ever being number 1 to him, because you won’t ever be, his kids will always come first. Sorry you’re in this situation, it’s hard enough to find someone to grow old with, but when you are a CFer your “ocean full of fish” gets a lot smaller.

    • Unfortunately so. They’re 5 and 2. He seems to be pretty understanding of my situation, because he obviously knew from the beginning that I hate kids because I told him so. He seems to be open to compromise, but he and I are going to have to have a serious talk about limiting things so I don’t go crazy. I honestly want to try to love them, because, yes, he is incredibly important to me and I want to make him happy. I guess all I can do at this point is be hyper-vigilant and look at everything with eyes wide open, seeing everything from 360 degrees. Thank you for your reply and support!
      Fist Bump for meeting another CFer!!
