    More and more lately, I have been glad of the missed pregnancy chances, failed relationships and I'm loving being alone. I have found myself in a contingent of men that does not want children nor do I want marriage. I don't think that will change. I'm decent looking and charismatic enough that I can pickup if I wish, so there's not that.

    I've been told that I am selfish because of this. Because I care not to devote myself to something I do not want. Because I do not wish to succumb to the natural instinct to procreate and attempt immortalize my DNA. Acquiring a woman is always on my friends' priority list. Yet I favour self-improvement and enjoying my life rather than acquiescing to the constant needs of another.

    What do you think?

    I'd like to have one kid or if I were ever affluent, I'd like to adopt and work with foster kids (the older ones).

    I love my two kids. It's hard at times but they are really fun to watch. My daughter does the kids Bjj class and I help coach it. I get a real kick out of watching her. My son is a handful but he is pretty funny. It's a catch. They're great but they really do make life harder. The amount that you care for them is awesome but the worry is hard. I'm at an interesting phase where I'm glad we're done having kids but it is kinda sad at the same time. They're really is no feeling like the feeling you get when you look at them. The other side is the worry and fear that they might get hurt. They're are pros and cons but if you have doubts I'd say error on the side of caution. To be single and have no worries would be cool. If you have a dog imagine that times a 100.

    It really is an up and down struggle but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    I certainly wouldn't call it selfish, however you are missing out on the greatest thing that could possibly happen to a human being. The instant my daughter was born, the immediate feeling of attachment to another person is indescribable. It is the strongest feeling I have ever possessed, and continue to possess. No, it is not the same as what a child feels towards a parent - it is stronger than that. My daughter is the only person on this planet whom I would take a bullet for. I am sure any parent on this board know exactly what I am talking about, yet it is impossible to describe to a non-parent. You may not feel like you are ready for it now, but I truly hope that the desire for children comes along at some point. Don't grow old to be a lonely man with no family - that would be a tragedy, IMO.

    It goes beyond just loving someone because they are blood. It is instinctual. A child is an extension of you, and will hopefully succeed you. Seeing my daughter grow and become a young woman gives me the strongest sense of pride I can have.

    How old are you?

    I wouldn't mind having a youngin or 2 one day, but definitely not now. I'm the same age my dad was when I was born, but I'm too selfish to have a child right now. I'm really career-driven, so I want to make sure when I do have a child that I'm able to provide a much better childhood for my youngin than what was provided for me. I had a good childhood too, so I have to stay on the grind for a while. Plus I don't want to put my potential kid(s) through a divorce, so finding the main squeeze is important.

    I have two shit makers and everyday brings pride and disappointment with them. Its a mixed bag. However, I look back now and think, "what the fuck did I do with myself before kids. Fuck! My life must have been boring as fuck." Which is a lie, but I think that way. Kids are great, and if you wait until you think you're ready, you'll never have kids. Get married. Learn to live happily with your spouse. Then introduce chaos in a diaper to your happy home. Otherwise, it'll doom both relationships.


    But I definitely encourage attempts to have kids. Go out, aim for the stars, be the underdog, and be that 2% (condoms are 98% effective). If you succeed, you can claim to be a master of the universe.

    Ideally I'll be too busy being successful and chasing my dreams to have kids. Realistically I'm just going to be a regular fellow but it's going to take me a while to admit that's all I'll ever be. Once it becomes painfully obvious, I think I'll want me a son, and I'm making as many babies as it takes to get one. Because I'm downloading my dreams/aspirations to his little impressionable head, and I'm teaching him to be the baddest motherfucker around from Day 1. He's going to grow up to be better than I ever could have been.

    Fuck no!

    I have a 4 year old nephew who is badass. He's intelligent, funny, entertaining, polite, and all around a genuinely sweet little kid. I still can't deal with being around him for more than a day and a half in a row.

    I'm an introvert with social & general anxiety issues, and I NEED to have alone time as much as possible. With a kid, there's no such thing as alone time, unless you have someone to watch them. It's the same reason I don't want a pet or to ever get married. I want to be free to do what I want, when I want, and where I want.

    But don't get me wrong. If shit happens and I get some chic pregnant, fine, I'll deal with it like a man.

    2 boys... I must say its work but something about it all makes it so worth it. Nothing like coming home to a child and them saying, " I love you daddy". Well I mean I am assuming it is awesome, my kids don't do that...

    Kidding but yeah, really not looking forward to the grocery bill when they are a bit older. My boys rip through everything and my youngest is an absolute garbage disposal.
