    THEN you are heartless. Being passive and not careing about anything is not heartless it's either because you are lazy or scared or an idiot.

    When was the last time you worked your ass off? And not the "sitting behind a desk studying or juggling numbers" kind of work, but real physical "fuck, my hands hurt so much i can't even masturbate for 3 days" type of work. You'll find your heart pretty fast i assure you.

    Go build a house and try to burn it down afterwards without feeling anything and then you can claim to be heartless. Until then you probably are just to scared to commit to anything.
    Yeah, I suppose you are right. I am not heartless, and just passive instead. I do find it suspicious that you shrug off book work like it is easier than manual labor though. It is a very judgmental sentiment assuming one class of work is somehow harder than another.

    With that attitude, you'll almost be divorced before you got married - unless your wife was a golddigger, but who wants one of those ?

    Because children need love. How will they learn to maintain functional relationships if they themselves never had one?

    It is a big deal because your children will not be able to control their emotions when they get pissed or sad or anything else people as a whole experience from time to time. If they don't have a father as a role model in their home, where do you think they will pick up examples on how to deal with situations that don't suit them well? TV? Friends? If you want to have horrendous kids due to you being emotionally unavailable based on being *forced* to marry someone for the sake of wanting to when you wouldn't even give a shit about them really, go for it. You don't even sound like the type of person that could commit to things that actually take effort and work. It takes 2 people to raise kids well, not just one. It's not a split effort, its a joined one.

    Please, never have children.
    No, I am saying raise the best kids you can will the skill set you possess and be aware of the areas you lack in. I know if I raise my kids solely they will be emotional cripples. So that job will have to rest more on the person I marry. And that's just how the cookie is gonna crumble.

    This, nothing special about other people dying. We know they will die so why are we expecting them to live longer than ourselves?

    Relatively apathetic beyond my girlfriend and her kid, really. I've never gotten along with my siblings, was glad to be rid of my parents, feel little but contempt toward people who are over-sentimental or publicly emotional to any great degree. Death doesn't phase me nor do very many, if any, inevitabilities in life. The suffering of others, be they 'third world' citizens or otherwise, I at best ignore.

    I wouldn't call myself a sociopath, but i'd undoubtedly call myself the most cold-hearted person I know; something for which i'm somewhat happy about. Truth be told, I wouldn't lament if more were like me given how annoying people seem to be in this day and age.

    You don't have to do any of that if you don't feel you want it. If you still havent found "somebody special", don't rush yourself. If you don't feel like having children, don't have them. Live your life like you love it and maybe, in the future, something will change.

    Forcing yourself to marry a person you don't love, to live a life you don't want, to raise some children you don't care about sounds pretty fucking sad.
    This person nailed it. Why bother to get married at all? If there's no passion, no love, then it is just a farce and pretty pointless. There's no need to have kids at all. Focus on your own life and do what you really want to do. If you are so apathetic about marriage or kids or whatever, then that's just a sign you don't want them enough.

    It may be surprising, but some actually do get married for convenience. I understand it... but I'll never agree to it.

    I, myself, can never be cold-hearted. I actually find myself growing more and more warm these days. Hell, I don't even kill instects anymore in my house. I have strategic jars dotted around that should I see a bug - I just grab one of the plastic jars, capture them, go to the nearest window and let them out.

    If people expect some divine galactic power to help them out in their time of need, how can those people not show the same mercy and compassion to those who are at comparatively the same level?

    I am not among that expectant bunch; namely due to karma not being a real phenomenon.

    Quick pro-tip: Try to be good at "going through the motions", just so the squirt feels accomplished. Fathers are role models, and saying "Wow, that was really well done! Nice one!" to a 8yo boy can easily be something he remembers the rest of his life. The alternative is him believing you don't care until his late teens/early 20's, and building a father-son relationship at that point is too late for many.

    OT: I wouldn't call it cold-hearted, but I am by nature the kind of guy described in the OP. Thankfully, I have a dad who is like that as well, so I've made extra effort to give my 10 years younger sister the "Good job!"'s and "Proud of you!"'s she needs. Only when deserved, mind. We no want no spoiled brat :P

    Pretty much this. When I was younger, maybe 8 or maximum 10, I used to kill smaller animals like birds, I didn't care two cents about others around me and everyone pissed me off.

    Today, I frequently donate to charity, hand out free apples to homeless people and after the summer I'll adopt a cat. And that's not even a lie. People do change, I guess.

    Maybe it's just a phase...
