I never wanted kids and I don't like them. I'm having a baby because I love my husband and he wants kids.
I believe people when they say "it's different when it's your own child" however I really hope my child doesn't end up being one of those obnoxious ones, because I hate the idea that something I created and love is annoying people. I go out of my way to not annoy people, and I really don't want to start once I have a child...

I'm not very clucky or maternal I think, I have absolutely no idea how to connect with kids at all, all of my friends kids think I am majorly boring. I suppose I had my first because Ithought that is what you do, my hubby wanted one etc, and I was pleased to find out that I adored him, so we had more. But yeah, I woulnd't say I don't like other peoples kids, I just am not interested at all.

My kid can be a brat. It's just that I can send her to her room if she's giving me the irrits and I can't do that with others lol

I've never met a kid I didn't like. I love all kids. I would MUCH rather spend my time with kids than adults. Doesn't matter how old they are, either. I've always been like that.
No idea if that will change when I have my own, but I seriously doubt it.

There's only a couple of kids I don't like, and it's for their horrible/rude personality.
But a lot of the time I do blame their parents as they do nothing to discourage it.
My kids can do some really naughty things sometimes, but they are really sweet kids. Just not to their poor mother lol.

I love kids but since being pregnant I've had a lot less tolerance for them (it might just be because i am tired though!) I've spent almost half my life looking after other people's kids and I'm just ready to look after my own.
Having kids was always a deal breaker for me, I wouldn't have settled down with someone who didn't care one way or the other.

It's not that I didn't like kids, I just felt really akward around children. I am the youngest in the family and had no exposure to babies or younger children. I never had any maternal desires either. If at work someone bought their new baby in I was usually the only woman who had no interest in looking at the baby or holding the baby. I always knew that I wanted my own children though and I've learnt how to talk and relate to children through my own children and subsequent exposure to other people's children.
I think saying "we don't like children" is probably not what we really mean. It's probably more we feel uncomfortable or have no parental inclinations towards other people's children.

I don't think I ever felt a biological urge to have kids either. It was more of a 'logical' decision. If I'd been able to continue having children for my whole life then I would have waited another 5-10+ years! It was because of my age that prompted us to start trying.
I also wanted them more as 'older' kids or adults, than I did babies/ toddlers, if that makes sense. I looked at the things I loved doing with my parents (and still do) - like playing cards, drinking wine, watching films, etc. - and thought how nice it would be to do that with my own kids one day.
So, if I can describe it that way, it was more of a logical thought about the future, rather than an "I want babies" feeling.
Having had DD, I like babies and kids a lot better now! She changed my thinking
