    I'd probably like biological children but I hate the idea of sex so much that adoption would probably be better, plus idk if I'd even want to like get married or whatever but when you adopt a kid you don't need another person I love kids anyway so as long as I love them as my child I don't think it would matter if they were biologically related or not

    I mean.. you don't have to have sex to get pregnant....you just need to find a way to get the semen to right place. :P

    This is weird to me most men if they want kids they want their own if they are able to do so.

    Ever since I was 12 years old, I have never wanted kids of my own, I have always told my self I wanted to adopt instead, now I am turning 18, my mind has not changed from this idea and still want to adopt but I don't want to have kids of my own.
    I just think it is pointless to bring children into this already over-populated not-so-great world and enhance someone else's life instead. - I have yet to meet someone that thinks like me yet though.:rolleyes:
    I just feel quite upset about the whole situation because I feel as if the chance of my finding a guy that I am interested in plus prefers to adopt than have his own kids is low- so it might not happen.

    Does anyone feel the same way as me??
    I think the same way. If I wanted a kid at all, I'd probably adopt, give them a better range of opportunities & a family. But perhaps that is because I have less of a sense of (genetic/family name) legacy.

    Yeah, you are cutting your chances down quite a bit, I would think that the majority of guys either want no kids at all or their own. But you could always try to persuade, I guess.

    I can't relate to this, im not sure why you'd rather adopt.
    I would raise my own children, and would hate the idea of somebody else doing so.

    I just gave my explanation why I'd rather adopt. Did you not read my OP?

    I really, really don't want children at all. However, if my partner wanted kids I'd suggest adoption. So I kind of relate lol

    I can understand where you're coming from with the overpopulation aspect, and some guys might not feel the same way. But I think it's very noble of you

    Why would they, if you were a good parent/ still alive?

    Expand on this? We can't just migrate to central Australia or the Arctic tundra.
    The issue isn't so much gross population (ie. space) but rather resources / population. We don't have enough natural resources to sustain our current population generally but especially in some areas of the world. Just look at California and the water issues they have in the summer as an easy example.

    India and China are definitely in the red-zone for population density.
