Re: The No-Kids Requirement
In my dating days post separation, I knew it would be almost impossible to find women who did not have kids (surprisingly, though, most of my good matches and dates did not have kids and had never been married). However, I did not want to date anyone with kids more than a year or so younger than my own, and did put that preference in my profile. That worked out well, as I met someone with kids not too different in age.
Being clear about what works for you is always a good idea. It's not rude - unless you phrase your preference in a rude manner.
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
