Now I'm very curious, but ok.
I have a kid, but all the reasons I was on the fence about having one in the first place came true, so definitely not having any more. That said, he is the coolest thing and I wouldn't change anything.
I don’t think I do. I stress myself out enough, the idea of trying to raise someone in a fucked up world is too much for me to process right now.
I'm not sure how to take this.
Ha not in the wrong way...just chuckled at the last part of the sentence and was thinking "true"
Gotcha.. I essentially posted the same thing twice. First sentence was me being realistic, second was me being crude haha.
idk, I guess I probably do but I think I'd rather adopt.
I think adoption is a v responsible choice. Not that having one yourself is irresponsible but since adoption is such a difficult process, you end up really knowing if you want that for yourself and if you're ready and you also don't contribute to growing population issues
I go to back and forth, but usually lean towards no. My biggest motive to have a kid would be to have someone young give a shit about my existence and/or well-being when I'm old. And I realize that's pretty fucking selfish even if I still had every intention of being the best parent I could be.
Also recently I was upstairs and my gf was downstairs on the couch scrolling through IG when a story of a loudly crying/whining baby came up. It lasted all of ten seconds or whatever but bugged the hell out of me. When it ended I felt a huge wave of relief followed by a thought of "omg what if that was just like, my life and I couldn't stop that by simply hitting a button?? Fuck" so yeah kids aren't looking too good for me as of now haha
(I'm getting a warning for this in 3... 2... 1... )
And to answer the OP: no, because kids are garbage. Why would anyone do that to themselves? The "wanting someone to look after me when I'm old" angle doesn't appeal either 'cause I don't plan on living past 50 anyway.
Man if I don't live long enough to demand a senior discount at multiple places that clearly would never offer a senior discount then I'm gonna be pissed
if i live that long i hope waffle house does senior discounts
Can't wait to get a senior discount on my chorus dot fm supporter membership
I can’t wait to be a father and if I have two boys I already have names picked out but my ex wanted to adopt and that would have been fine I just want kids :))))))))))))
I actually just remembered one reason I'd love to have kids: the sheer selfish joy of giving them stupid names.
I wanna name my son Marcus Jr. despite me not being named Marcus.
Or Homer Jr. The kids could call him HoJu.
If I do have one, I'm going to adopt. I have too much health nonsense in my family (mental issues, cancers, heart/blood issues) that I wouldn't want to pass them down. I know everyone has something like that, but my family seems to have a pretty shitty combo.
I would love to adopt a newborn (I. LOVE. BABIES.) and go from there, but I think I'd also be okay with a child.
I don't think I'd want to do it on my own, but if I ever find a partner, that might be a nice thing to do in the future.
The only reason I would want my own biological kids would be so I get to name them, I love coming up with baby names, and what if the kid I decide to adopt had a mom who spelled Kelly or Carly with an I
i think the solution to your problem is hamsters ian
or fish or seamonkeys
I've considered getting a guinea pig but that's different Cam
I used to be very unsure, but then a few years ago my aunt who I'm really close with (she's closer in age to me than my mom and the rest of her siblings) had a baby. I love my baby cousin so much and spending time with him has definitely made me want to be a mom someday.
