I have a question for the ladies on this forum. Please do not flame me for this ... I just need to know ... Here's the thing, I'm hitting my next decade milestone in a few years and I still feel no desires to have any children or adopt any children. Everytime someone finds out that I don't have any desire to have kids, they look at me as though I'm a cold-hearted b*tch or that I'm evil or something. They generally say something like, "Oh how could you NOT want children? ALL women love children!! Believe me, you will change your mind when the time comes." I don't think I'm a horrible person, I'm definitely NOT cold-hearted! I mean, I can't gush about kids (unless they're just really really unbelievably cute and super well-behaved). I always feel so out of place whenever a coworker brings in their babies or children and all the other women are going ga-ga over them. I feel like an evil person for not feeling the same way. I don't know, I just do not have the desire to have kids (or raise other people's kids) right now. And my clock doesn't look like it's ever going to tick (I don't have a problem with that either). Now, is it true that women who don't want kids will eventually change their mind? Is there really something WRONG with me for not wanting children even as I get older (not even wanting to adopt)? I mean, am I evil or something for not being overly fond of kids? Please don't flame me ...ush: I'm just feeling a bit upset.
