How have celebrities such as Jennifer Anniston, Oprah Winfrey, and Rachel Ray handled the dating scene in times when they’ve been single?
After a few dates with a new man, the inevitable would happen: "You will be such a great mom."Baffled, I'd then be left with my gabbling mouth (I'm not talented with the pithy response).

I think it's about time there's a place just for the childfree to find one another. I've got a decent, stable IT gig here and all that fun stuff.
She also talked about meeting men who at first said they didn’t want kids, but as the relationship progressed began to speak of their desire to be a father. I encouraged her to hang in there, and even to consider relocating to a more urban area where there would be more childfree men in the dating pool.
But just like a formulaic movie plot, they all wanted kids. Age had something do with it: I was in my early 30s. And I would very nicely tell them they were dating the wrong woman, extricate myself, and move on. Two different, otherwise wonderful, handsome, and brilliant men said they "understood" after I opened up about my fears.
These men were in their mid-to-late 30s and early 40s. And then they each promptly sabotaged the birth control that I was very strict about.
Childfree adults are a minority, and this leads to unique dating issues.
One woman I interviewed for my book complained that she had difficulty meeting men who were also childfree and wanted to remain that way.
This was well before the stats came out listing the top childfree cities: San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington DC have the fewest number of homes with children in the US.
I think if I was still single, I’d strongly consider moving to a more childfree-friendly place.
(I've already checked Google)PS - I'd try to pick up girls IRL, but unless they have a sign above their head that says "Doesn't want kids 0r have kids." (which is impossible, lol)..I thought dating sites would be best because you already know what a girl wants for the most Master Mu..topic of children was one of the main reasons for my breakup with my last GF before my current one.
She had a vague interest in children when we first met, yet by the time we split, she couldn't complete a single sentence without talking about having babies.
But, contrary to all the horror stories I'd heard, I had fun.
I met wonderful, interesting men, who showed me parts of New York I hadn't known—all very rom-commy and joyful. However I put my disinterest in children, these men would eventually tell me how much wanted babies (more than one told me how beautiful I would look pregnant). So I took it a step further and explained how terrified I was, physically and mentally, to be pregnant, to care for needy small humans.
