Or it might just be that you know yourself well enough, to know what is most suitable for you at this stage of your life. Not all Buddhists should ordain anyway. If all Buddhists got ordained, it would make getting dana very difficult for all those monks and nuns, would it not?

As iv'e come to see in my meditation practice, everything in the material world is uncontrollable and unsatisfying so why go on? It seems as though I am subconsciously torturing myself to an extent just by staying. But the reasons i always come up with when asked the question is "I want to have kids one day" and "I don't look like a monk" (because I am black/white idk) and those are probably the only 2 things stopping me as of now....so what's stopping you from ordaining?
