Her question was: “Where are all the women who actually don’t like kids?
I can’t be the only one.” She went on to say, “There seems to be a belief that not liking kids = bad person.
What this means of course is sifting through a lot of crap, such as: ”Hey baby”—crap, “Can I see more pictures?
”—crap, “I want to make you my everything”—crap, etc, etc, etc." I don't think she ever went on a date with anyone, but it's clear in her making fun of the ridiculous messages she got why she wouldn't or couldn't find a decent date on the site.
What worried me about this scenario was that babies are permanent.
My experiences with other people’s kids proved to me I didn’t enjoy it.
I didn’t enjoy being responsible for someone else’s entertainment, feeding needs, bathroom needs and emotional needs. I enjoy offering my gifts of love, nurturing and compassion to adults, who are often in need of those very gifts.
It’s not like a dress that I could return if it just wasn’t working for me.
Maybe I just needed to try on a baby before buying? You know, enjoy all the good parts and then reap the financial benefits of being childless. I spent time with babies, with little kids and bigger kids, with ADD kids and “good kids”. I didn’t find babies cute – they were just uninteresting.
