hey there so I'm Olga from Israel. we have an Israeli forum for women who don't want children (although you'll fing quite a few moms there too) and I wanted to check something hmmm... foreign. just to see what it's like in other countries. so a little about myself. 27 yrs olds. just starting university this October (I guess I'm a late bloomer when it comes to education). don't want any kids, don't really like them really. and I know there are those who say that even though I don't like kids, I will still like my own. well, I'm not planning to take that chance. I'm a big traveling fan and the world is too big and I have too much to cover, kids will just get in the way (well, lets be honest, kids will totally ruin my plans). and to me it sounds stupid to sacrifice so much for something I don't even want. I recently had a short relationship with a guy that felt the same, unfortunately 2 weeks ago he moved back to New York miles and miles away so I'm single again (well, kind of. I'm actually flying to New York to see him again, crazy). ok, this is way too long already. just wanted to say HI to all

Short time lurker from Vancouver, BC!
I used to be interested in having kids, but now I realized that I'm better off not going that route after doing a self evaluation of myself and my life.
I have sleep issues, poor stress tolerance, a short temper, easily irritated, and mood swings. Oh, and here's the biggie: I have epilepsy! Just what I need, stress induced seizures! It's bad enough that I've been absent minded a few times and have forgotten to take my meds.
I'm 21, and you're only in your 20s once, so enjoy those times while they last.
I am not a fan of babies, and I never understood the hype surrounding them. All they do is eat, sleep, cry, poop themselves, and drain your bank account by the thousands. The only thing they've got going for themselves is the cuteness novelty, which usually wears off in several weeks. There's nothing appealing about being a human buffet.
They suck away at your energy and your soul. They're like the real life version of the Polymorph from Red Dwarf!
No thanks, I already deal with a percentage of consumers who do this to me 3 days a week. But that's a more tolerable alternative.
Why should I shell out thousands of dollars for pumps, diapers, baby toys, nursing bras, cradles, baby monitors, and whatever else? That's money I could be spending on video games, vinyl records, traveling, or a future Tears For Fears concert.
I could be using that money to buy CDs off Amazon, that will be playing in my car instead of The Wiggles.
Someone asked me "what's wrong with giving up something for someone else?". I'm sorry, but once you do that, you're gonna be stuck associating with that person for 18 years, whether you want to or not. Nobody wants do that.

Hey Renowned, welcome aboard!!! There is a thread called "Welcome New Members" under the pub section where you can do an intro if you're interested- I go there regularly to check out the "newbies" (I haven't been here too long myself either). Glad you found us!! I can tell you've got a sense of humor already from your title- I like it!!
