I can barely take care of myself.
Im selfish, and I although I love kids, being a parent is a 24/7 job. And I would really only want to be a parent like 24/4.
Edit 1: Thanks for all the support, just some backstory I am a older brother and I have twin siblings that are 4 years old (I am 19) and I love spending time with them, taking care of them, but I cannot see myself wanting to not hanging out with friends whether it be in person or on the computer to take care of the child.
Edit 2: As many of you are commenting on the selfish aspect of my comment, I should clarify that I mean that most good parents (imo) tend to love their child almost as much as themselves and will sacrifice nearly everything for them. I couldn’t do that, or come close to that.
I probably won’t be able to afford it and refuse to subject another human to any type of poverty.
My sister recently commented that she was surprised that I don’t want kids because I’m great with hers.
That’s the thing though. They’re HER kids. I can give them back when I’m frustrated or tired or bored. I don’t have to worry about stunting their social skills with my own weird approach (or lack thereof) to people. I don’t have to pay for their schooling or healthcare or toys. My job is easy. All I have to do is play with them.
Realistically I think she was right. I would be a good mum. But I don’t want to give up my freedom as a person in order to become a mum.
Bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
I can’t produce a stable environment for kids, and I think that stability is essential to an upbringing.
I just don’t want to.
• quiet/alone time
• financial comfort
• only having one ass to wipe
Kids are not for me. I don’t even have any pets right now (I love dogs/cats, though).
I’m an 8th grade teacher. Wonderful birth control.

I don’t really have a complicated answer besides the fact that it just doesn’t appeal to me. I just don’t feel the need to raise a family. Plus I’m not very good with kids.
I like my money
I come from a family of 12 kids. Ever seen a family with 12 kids? Fu*k no you havent! Its just wrong. Gene pools dont have endless depth. We were home schooled at first too. It was literally a class room of weirdos every day.
I am not maternal and I am terrified of pregnant women’s bellies
Because it looks like a pain in the a*s.
I cant pass these genes on to anyone else in good faith
More reasons than I can probably remember right now, but here are my top 10.
• Health problems I don’t want to pass on and which would make pregnancy much harder.
• Have never desired kids.
• Their voices make me want to die.
• I’m kinda lazy and like my money, freedom and quiet house too much.
• My mom almost died giving birth and I don’t want to risk that.
• I am afraid of hospitals and surgeries and am a general hypochondriac so pregnancy and birth sounds like a massive nightmare.
• My cats hate kids.
• My fiancé doesn’t want kids.
• No kids means I’m reducing my personal carbon footprint by a megafuckton.
• Probably would get fat if I was pregnant (beyond baby weight). Don’t want to be fat.
