I had to laugh, then I realized how sad it was ...

I was recently at a local sports bar with a group of friends and met an attractive young woman, who was also there dining with friends. We chatted briefly and exchanged pleasantries as well we phone numbers. Over the next week or so we spoke several times, just familiarizing ourselves with each other and the subject of kids came up, I informed her that I had none, and I immediately felt a change in her mood,as far as the scope of the conversation went from that point. I probed about this, inquiring about what I'd done to change her mood; her reply caught me off-guard. She honestly thought I'd lied to her about my NOT having kids, and she subsequently felt that everything else I'd told her about myself was false also. She was so used to the fact that every male of color she'd been involved with in her past(regardless of how seriously) had at least 1 child from a previous relationship/marriage she'd become obtuse to the reality that are some men that don't fit that (sad) stereotype. I thought we had alleviated any doubts she had about my past (as far as my being honest with her), but I've yet to hear from her, or have her accept a call from me since that conversation. It been a couple of months since our paths crossed that evening and I've moved on, but the thought lingers in my mind if she REALLY felt I'd misrepresented myself to her when in I was being honest, or if maybe she was just no longer interested ... HMMMM
