How common is it for people to never find an other half or have kids?

I often meet some women in their mid 30's who are single and planned on having kids. How common is it for them to not have them?

I feel bad for them.

I was on a date with one who was 35 and she said she had planned on having kids but it's too risky for her now.

Even men and other women, how common is it for them to never find someone they love?

Why feel bad for them?

If they really wanted a kid they could go out & ride whoever they can till they get knocked up.

It gives life purpose having a kid or kids

The same joy can’t be got from material things

Seems very common for people with high boards post counts.

Unless someone says they're single, how would their post count reveal it? A certain poster in the past has a wife and four children, and had about 20 posts a day.

The fella with the really young wife was a very regular poster too, with many very long posts.

I never thought about it, which is probably an advantage of not having a biological clock. I'm unmarried, have a baby, and a mortgage the size of the economy of a minor African country. Not exactly a catch.

I do, however, have life insurance and a family history of prostate cancer so that's good, right ?

I also enjoy a deep fried Mars bar, ladies. PM me before it's too late.

My AH answer:. OP Do what "The Wizard" tells Travis in the movie 'Taxi Driver'. If you haven't already done so, watch it on DVD or wherever.
I don't honestly know.
