I am a single man age 30. I have been single for a year and a half. Even though I want children I actively resisted the idea with my last (only) relationship. I was probably depressed for the last few years of our relationship. I was listening to a lot of conservative talk radio and had a very bad outlook on the future of the world and did not want to inflict this on a child. I also was extremely worried about economic stability. Even then I had hope for one of us to be a stay at home parent. Since then I have found FDR and the idea of personal freedom above all. This has really liberated me and allowed me to be happy once again or maybe for the first time ever jury is still out on that one.
Anywho I still find that when I see pregnant women it makes me sad. Anyone else have this experience? I see that there is a lot online about women being sad seeing pregnant women but not much about men.
I am guessing this is due to my want of a child and the lack of prospects of a good mother/life partner.
I do have to say that I have been resistant to post this for a while. Kind of scarry on it's own.
Thanks for reading,
I want to add that I ask this because I think I should be happy for them (which I am). At the same time I would like to not feel sad for myself.
