All these things have been said to me by people I've either just met or barely knew. I'm sure I'll be adding to this list over time, as I had a new one just last night from my cab driver. (For the record, I really love children, I just don't want to be a parent.)
  1. "You'll change your mind."
  2. "That's so selfish."
  3. "Don't your parents want grandkids?"
  4. "Being a mother is the most important thing a woman can do, you'll regret it."
  5. "But your kids would have such pretty eyes!"
  6. "That's really unnatural."
  7. "You owe it to your country."
  8. "That's really shallow."
  9. "That's so sad! What's wrong with you?"
  10. "You must be a very cold person."
  11. "Is your husband ok with that?"
  12. "So you hate children?"
  13. "You must not be an American."
