Growing up, my grandparents always had some sort of a dessert everynight; my Mom never had much of a sweet tooth and did not always make something (could be the financial circumstances then too). I make something usually for special times or for company; I much prefer a savory snack over anything sweet.

Only on holidays as a regular "thing". Even when DGS is here for dinner, we don't have dessert. DH likes something sweet often so we keep ice cream in the freezer. Desserts are the very last things I will cook.

We seldom have dessert. Cookies if there are some. I keep a stash for the grand kids - have to hide from hubby!

Actually we never eat dessert.

OK, If there is a tasting menu in a restaurant or a fixed price dinner that serves a dessert we will eat it. And generally enjoy it.

But we do not have sweet toothes at all.

Would much rather have a savory dish than a sweet one.

Amaretti or creme de menthe are also great over ice cream.

I don't fix dessert very often, but DH is a chocoholic, so there's usually some sort of chocolate around. Oreos are a favorite, but chocolate milk works, too.
We get by with a little help from our friends

I don't enjoy baking very much, so we rarely have dessert; also, in general I prefer savory dishes to sweets. Sometimes we have ice cream in the summer, but not right after dinner. I go out to dinner with friends every Wednesday and we sometimes order a dessert to share, which I enjoy, but it's not a regular thing for me.

I have dessert a lot more often than I make it. If I see something in the store that catches my eye, like that 10-inch lattice topped apple pie for $4.98 for example, I will pick it up and, usually, add it to my lunch menu. It would be too labor intensive for me to make an apple pie, especially during the week, and I doubt if I could do one for $4.98!

We have dessert a while after dinner most every night - usually fruit. The only time I don't eat dessert is when we eat dinner out. Those meals are too big to have dessert also and I don't want to be stuffed.

Pretty much never except for holidays/special occasions.

Neither of us are very into sweets, so except for fruit, we rarely even think about dessert.

y'all are pagans, mostly. I was raised thinking that fruit cocktail was "dessert"
