New relationship and children issues

Just after a bit of advice/perspective on this situation.

I have been dating a lovely man for about 2 months now, see each other twice a week approx, dinner, cinema, days out that kind of thing, text most days just usual have a nice day etc, he split with his wife of 4 years in the summer, I spilt with my husband 2 years ago, I have a 4 year old son, him no children, anyway that's the background over.

One of my close friends knows his next door neighbour, who has said his wife left him as he didn't want children and she did, we've never really spoke about his ex but he says he wasn't happy so they spilt but hasn't expanded on that. So he knows I have a 4 year old, who he obviously hasn't met yet.

Not really sure what I'm after here just would it seem like I am 'wasting time' with him for want of a better word, I'm 26 he's 37. I feel it's too early to ask him what his feelings are on children and don't want to seem like I am coming on too strong, but would rather know at this stage.

I assume he knows you have a child? I would wait a while longer (maybe?) and ask him. No other way of finding out how he feels about it.

I don't want biological children but would happily be with someone with kids. I love kids, just have no real inclination to create my own. I have male friends who have or are dating/with women with DC despite not wanting their own.

Do you want more children?
