Not Entirely By Choice, But Mostly.I am currently childless by choice. At one point, I was talked into trying to get pregnant, but thankfully my body didn't play along.
It's not to say I don't like kids. I work as a nanny. I love kids.
It's more like I don't trust a man enough to have children with him at the moment. Every man I've dated has been a big child. Why would I want to give birth when I already have a man-child to mother after? My latest man, who is now pouting that I won't get pregnant, already informed me because his job pays more than mine, I would be the one getting up at night every night while he slept peacefully. Yeah... no thanks.
I also don't know if I can handle having a child of my own. I have medical and mental health issues. A baby deserves better than that. Plus there's the fact I'm rather selfish about my personal time. I don't get any and I get testy fast.
Kids deserve better than that. I'm aware so unless I find some prince charming with a nice pre-nup, it will be just a dream. Or a huge accident happens.... har har.
