It's a guy I know from work but we don't exactly see each other on a regular basis. He's funny and very friendly (to most people not just me...as far as I know) and sometimes we work together on projects and stuff so we've been meeting on and off for the past few years or so.
BTW, I'll be seeing him a lot the next couple of months (work-related, again).
This guy's in his late thirties and he's said that he's not married and doesn't have kids on several occasions (I've checked and it's true), plus he once said he'd "love" to have a kid.
Also, I saw him checking me out once...I think I caught him doing it and he looked away asap.
BTW, I'm a single woman and have no kids...and he knows it.
So, guys out there? Any comments? I'd love to hear what men in particular have to say about this.
Any comments? What do you think is going on? Is he shy? He seems to be pretty confident and has a very congenial personality (works in sales) but I’m kind of confused.

Sounds like he is advertising the fact. I'm recently divorced and have kids and am just starting to think about dating again. The whole issue of ex-husbands/wives and children is such an issue to consider once you hit our age, in a way it never was when we were in our twenties. Just sounds like he is looking for someone to settle down with and sees his lack of baggage as an asset - and I would say it is. I definitely feel like "damaged goods".
Despite being a divorced dad myself, I would rather date a woman without kids. Children just complicate a situation I'm already superbly uncomfortable in - dating. It's an odd and really unfair bias as if/when I am lucky enough to find someone I wouldn't expect her to take responsibility for my children -that's my job.0
