Although I'm only 27, it seems like my desire to NOT have kids is a major roadblock to any serious girlfriend.

I was the same way. Now I have two of them. Somedays I still don't want them... :)

I don't say this to suggest that you'll change your mind...I heard that enough when I was younger to know how stupid it sounded. I'm just saying that you can plan all you want, but sometimes people get pregnant and you become a mom or dad. There are options, of course, but you review your situation at the time and make that decision.

Kids are dirty and loud and sticky.  Plus I think I would be a terrible mom.  I'd have a five yo with a sailor's mouth  :D

They (doctors) absolutely will not snip if you don't have kids already.
It's bizarre, and more than a little annoying...

I *do* plan on having kids, but MUCH, MUCH later in my life than the overwhelming majority of my peers have...Something about being away from your family makes em' anxious to start their own as soon as possible with whomever will oblige them.

Besides, kids are sticky, and they wouldn't match any of my sweet parkas.

This is the MAJOR benefit of being in a gay marriage...no unplanned pregnancies!   :)

This is not true. I know someone who did it in his late 20s with no kids, but he has a chronic illness that may be genetically passed on.

As for the OP, I am in my very late 20s and have no interest in kids whatsoever. I just don't see them fitting into my life at any point.
