Over the past few days, I have been realizing more and more how much I do not like kids/toddlers/newborns, strictly becuase of my (one flaw here) extreme impatience with people. The more I though, the more I realized that my being gay is more and more okay with me, because I will likely never have to risk procreation. But now I have this freaky 'pull' I guess... to be a father figure. I don't know about father in the strictest sense, but still be there for some young, confused teenager like I once was, to tell him that life is O.K. occasionally. (and oddly enough, though I am not sexist, I can only imagine this being a son, never a daughter.) So now I wonder how many other gay men feel this way? A need to be the father to a child, or at least to part wisdom and comfort/what have you to that person? Thanks for you time + your thoughts.
