The men also treated her as less able to make a commitment because she was not a mother and didn’t wish to become one.
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.
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).
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.
