Is not wanting to be a mother a dysfunctional thing? I have never wanted to be a mother and always felt guilty about it. My first long term relationship ended because of that. I simply never felt attracted to the idea of having children. I know this would expose me to completetly new enviornment and people and I am simply not warming up to this idea. I recognize this as an obstacle when it comes to forming a relationship, because I do understand that it is a natural process, and I somehow do not want it. I felt like that 10 years ago and since then nothing has really changed. I never hide that fact and mentioned this at the beginning of two relationships that I had so far. Men tried to persuade that it will change with time, but it does not. Is this mean that something is awfully wrong with me?
