"Hello.... is anyone still paying attention to this group? A few local people are wanting to start up a steampunk group in the area. We're working on planning the first meeting, but have not yet set a date or location."
"I'd have to agree with the other people's children thing and the leash law for the most part.
Fairly well behaved children are OK though, if you can find um. And just remember, everyone was one at one point or another in their life,…"
"I think it's pretty normal to not like other people's children. *grin* There are far too many crappy parents out there...especially these days. I, for one, support leash laws for small children. Heck, if I have to have my…"
"I just turned 21 and have no kids of my own, so the idea of dating someone with kids is kind of scary. At this point in my life, I would have to say no. But I think that as time went along, if I never found the "right guy" or the…"
"I 32, single and have no children. I would say that it is the sort of thing that is relative or "situational" as others here have said.
I personally like the fact that I have no children at the moment, because I'm free to do…"
"People sometimes seem to assume that because I have a great, involved, relationship with my daughter, that I like children in general. I often have to end up admitting that I, regularly, don't like *other* people's children at…"
"Thank you. Most people (especially parents) tend to react very negatively when I say I dislike children, like I'm threatening them or something. That's not it. I simply don't feel a biological need to procreate. I don't find…"
"I know this will probably be an unpopular stance, but as a SWF (24), I have to say that if I met a guy with kids, it would be a no-go right from the start simply because I don't like children and do not plan on having any of my own,…"
"Hmm, I can't believe I never commented. I'm not a parent but I certainly would have nothing against dating a fellow that has children. I just wouldn't want to date one with children that didn't want to have any more…"
"My real name is Corazon, though i never go by it. and I love to cook, im always cooking for family, friends, and coworkers. its kind of what alot of people know me for so I became cheif cook (although i do not belong to any specific crew or airship…"
"I agree about not introducing your child to every tom, dick, and harry.. ( or every sally, mary, and jane). and yes, people are always attracted physically before emotionally, i guess what i was trying to say is i have learned not to trust my…"
I am a 22 year old proud mommy. I work as an emergency dispatcher. I'm new to the steampunk world, before attending all-con this year ( the theme was steampunk) I had no clue what it was however, now I am absolutely in love with the steampunk culture!
So you will probably notice my rank is not Dr or Captain like many of the others... the reason for that is simple.... i love food. ^_^
i love cooking ( and eating) but I mainly love to cook for people and when they enjoy my food. , so there you have it... chief cook!!!
as a result of my scrumptious cooking i am what you might call a "big girl" but all i have to say is big is beautiful baby! and as they say " i've got hips, thighs, and I dont descriminate against pies!"
******never trust a skinny chef******
