    LOL. Someone asked the same question in the NF thread. Here was my response:

    You can still share your thoughts as an NF guy. I just mainly wanted to see how the NF ladies view this *very big life decision*.

    Basically, I never said that two parents shouldn't be involved or anything like that. As a hetero guy, I'm just not as interested in the men's answers as I am in that of the opposite sex. I'm interested in the thought process of the opposite sex - the ones I will be raising a child with some day. I didn't think that the guys would be this interested and willing to participate in the thread. It's surprising, but it's good to see. So, go ahead and post your thoughts!
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    It's not that its only a woman's issue. It certainly is a man's issue. I just posted a simple poll to ask women's opinions. Because I was only interested in polling women at this time, doesn't for one second mean that it's not a man's issue.

    If I say I like dogs and want to learn more about the different breeds, does it follow that cats are unimportant to me?

    Yes. This logically follows.

    Sure, I agree, as I said they are both valid questions, they're just different questions and different things need to be taken into consideration is all. Start a thread about NT/NF men and kids, I'm sure just as many people will be interested in answering.

    I have two sons, 16 and 20. I have a step son that's 8 and a step daughter that's 12 and they are just as much my children as if I birthed them. For as bad a mother as I thought I'd be, I think I did pretty well. I am very nurturing with my family, it's the rest of the world I don't care so much about.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I never really got 17 y/o girls saying they *really* *really* wanted children in 10 years' time.

    At this point I don't feel an innate desire for children, but I don't think I'd abort if I got pregnant (not because of religious or moral reasons or that stuff).

    I like the curious little kids...they come and peek at me when I'm reading and I smile at them and say hi...you can see the wonder in their eyes. I always feel kinda held back by the surrounding parents/adults in my interactions with them, though.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
