I don't see the hype about it. I will gladly be 35 and single with my dog. I don't get the whole "forever alone thing" either.
I don't see why people want to bring up kids in this world... it's such a fucked up world to begin with and also once you have kids your entire life is almost over and the thought of spending the rest of my life with the same person just doesn't appeal to me at all.
Anyone else think this way?

i think about this from my grandma's point of view. she's in her 80s now... but she's having the time of her life. she was married very young to a wonderful husband, albeit a bit strict. she had 6 children with him. her husband died pretty early, but most of her kids were already married and had their own jobs and families by that point. whenever she comes to the states, she has 6 homes she can go to, 6 families to stay with as long as she likes. and when she gets tired of the cold weather, she goes back to her home country where she's pretty much the boss :p she has her own household, her own servants, a little farm, chickens, cows, and goats... and she just bosses everyone around. and she loves being connected to all of her relatives there as well as in the U. S. i can't imagine not having that network, not trying to create family ties like that.
i agree that the world today is not what it was 50-60 years ago. i know that there are some sick people out there, that you can't protect your kids from every danger out there. but that doesn't mean that we all should just... stop bringing life into this world. there are bad things here but really wonderful things too. i just think my generation is extremely fixated on sex, physical attractiveness, fame, and wealth. it's ridiculous. when i talk to my grandma about things that worry me, she laughs at me and tells me that i haven't even begun to live yet because i don't have a man and i don't have my own children. and while that is an antiquated, somewhat close-minded statement to make, i don't think she's entirely wrong. having a life partner and literally putting together your child is -bound- to change you. hopefully for the better. it helps put things into perspective.
despite all that, no, you definitely are not the only girl who doesn't want to get married or have kids. sometimes i feel that way too. but mainly out of anger when i see the kind of guys around me, how they treat women, how women let themselves4
