What’s the difference between being NOMANOKI and just being single?

Well, foremost, not all single people are NOMANOKI. And, not all NOMANOKI people are single. There are lots of single people who are staunchly determined to get married and have children (which is fine, if that’s what they want). But, there are lots of single people who prefer a different way of life. There are also lots of amazing couples who’ve made a conscious decision not to get married and have children.

Are you, like, anti love or something?

Quite the contrary. We’re all about deep, meaningful love and connection. We celebrate the hopeless romantic. We believe that life should be full of unbridled passion. Simply put, we’re just not into the whole marriage and kids thing.

Do you have anything to do with those creepy groups like MGTOW and INCEL? What about Radical Feminism?

Absolutely not. MGTOW, which stands for “Men Going Their Own Way,” is an anti-feminist movement advocating for men to separate themselves from a society they see as harmful to men. INCEL, which is short for “Involuntarily Celibate,” has become a seriously disturbing movement perpetrated mostly by misogynistic men who define themselves as unable to find a sexual relationship despite desiring one. And Radical Feminism is a perspective within feminism that calls for a radical reordering of society in which male supremacy is eliminated in all contexts.


We want nothing to do with groups like these.  We are a judgment-free, sex-positive, fun-loving community for individuals and couples who aren’t into the whole marriage and kids thing.  And, that’s it. We welcome you, no matter your gender, race, or sexual orientation. And we will not tolerate hateful rhetoric of any kind.

What if I’m kind of open to the idea of getting married and having kids? I mean, who knows what the future holds…


You’re right…who knows what the future holds? Life is an unpredictable roller coaster. Don’t let us stop you from getting married and having kids, if that’s what you decide you really want. We may poke fun, but we won’t judge you for it. And, we’ll welcome your perspective. In the meantime, enjoy your NOMANOKI life and join our community!
