    I don't really want kids but if the last few years is anything to go by I probably won't have to worry about telling any future partners about it.

    can't you adopt?
    I suppose, but it's not quite the same. I don't really know, it's all a long, long way off. I don't think I'm the kind of person who can't live without having children though, so I don't mind in the end really.

    so the only reason why you would have kids is if they give you profit?

    With no lady, I can make no plans at the moment. But hopefully in 10-12 years. It could be a lot earlier. Who knows?

    Ideally I'd like to have a first child at about 28/29, and a second either right away or about four-ish years later...probably that tbh.

    But right now I have no immediate plans for this cos I'm only 19 and haven't met the right person yet.
