He said as much when he made an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, saying that when he was dating women who didn't have kids, they just didn't get it. Kourtney, he insists, knows that he can't go out every night or see her every minute of every day because she's a parent, too, and knows that their priorities are just different. "I would date girls that didn't have kids and I find it kind of hard, because I think they have trouble understanding, well, 'Why don't you want to go to dinner every night with me?' or 'Why don't you want to see me every night?'" Barker said. "And now, I'm spending time with a woman who's, like, a great mom, who's, like, a great friend and you don't have to worry about any of those things, it just comes natural."

But, he added, missing someone is important to him, because it means that the time they spend together is that much more special. "I also really like missing someone and cherishing the time that I spend with them, instead of, you know, every day being with them, especially in the beginning of the relationship. I think missing someone is so important," he continued. Why Do Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Want to "Destroy Each Other"?
