Is there anyone here that has no intention of having kids ? Most of you are adults and most either already have kids or hope to have kids one day but people seem to think adults that don't want to have kids are weird and apparently missing out if they don't. I'm 16 but I can safely say that I never want to have kids, it just seems like a waste of 17-18 years considering that most people die in their 70's.

That's the part you should elaborate on.

Exactly, wait until you're not a teenager to start deciding things like that

I was always I don't mind if I do or don't.

Then 3 years ago my daughter was born and I couldn't imagine never having a kid.

That would be horrible.

Best thing that ever happened to me.

I don't want to have kids right now or in the foreseeable future, but I don't want to say I NEVER want kids.

My girlfriend is more against kids than I am, and it's quite possible she is incapable of having them anyway, so the decision might be made for us. Adoption is a possibility though.
#11
I'm not sure I want kids, personally. Mainly because I'd be a shit dad and looking after myself can be troublesome without having to look after a midget as well.
I have nothing important to say

Yeah I know but i'm just saying, if a couple gets married, people eventually start asking them do they having any plans to have kids, it's like the social norm that every one should live out the exact same life, You finish school, go to college, get a job, get a girlfriend, get married, buy a house, have kids, raise them, when they grow up you can spend the last 20 years of your life waiting to die. Retirement is the age where old people are supposed to live out the last of their days having fun, but when do you actually see old people living their dream.

yea, but are people asking you right now? most aren't because you're not in a place in your life where it is even worth the effort to think about this. you're gonna be a different person.

yeah you definitely shouldn't have kids

I don't know.

I've seen kids completely brighten up people's lives.

Two of my sisters have kids, I may just spoil them rotten with toys and whatever gifts they like.

Who knows? If I could find a girl who is like my best friend, I may do it then.

Right now I'm coming out of a deep depression, I'm finally starting to understand that it's okay to be happy again.

I think I may save up money for my niece for her college fund, here dad is a prick. I almost feel like it's my duty to step into her life and be like a father figure to Fiona. Her Dad wants nothing to do with her or my sister.

I'd be happy being the rich uncle who spoils his nieces and nephews, as long as they promise to love me, that's all I really hope for. I want a relationship to my Sister's children.

my parents swore to not have kids and i'm the fourth. apparently things change as you get older. i wouldn't know from experience, but ya know, that's what every old timer tells me.
i don't know why i feel so dry
#25
Nope, never. Too much of a chance it could turn out a skank or addicted to heroin.
#26
Dude seriously;

You think you know everything and have life all figured out at the ripe old age of 16, then you turn 21 and thought you were dumb then and think you really have life figured all out. Then you turn 30 and think what an idiot you were when you were 21.

It never ends. The conclusion I draw from this is that we will always be dumb in a matter of speaking

You might not want kids now but just wait a few years.

But you know, I'm 22 now. My opinion about life etc. is probably gonna change anyway as I get older and I accept that.

Don't worry about it so much.

When I was 20 I was full sure I didn't want to have kids.
Had our first kid at 30
Now we have two kids and I couldn't imagine my life without them.

I decided I didn't want kids when I was about 15-16ish. I'm 40 later this year and I've never changed my mind.

TS's opinion may change, it may not. Mine didn't, but I have lots of friends who did change their mind about it. None of them regret changing their mind, and I don't regret not changing my mind.
