I am already struggling trying to put myself back out there, and now that I am in my 30's and am trying to date in that age range- I find that everyone is ready to have babies. I don't want to bear children. In the area I live in it is hard enough to find someone who will accept my atheism (and rare to find a fellow non-theist) and when I throw in the "maybe I would like to adopt older children some day- I don't want to bear my own"... I may have as well announced that I have a highly contagious communicable disease. Am I being unrealistic? Do I need to just give in and date men with children? Why does this all suck so bad?

That's because most atheists here still are dealing with the masses of teachings from their former religion, whose first mantra is go forth and procreate. So many atheists keep their religious values and only throw out the god part... that is not a true atheist. In the animal kingdom at large, very few species attain the levels of fertility achieved technologically by Homo sapiens. Our obsession with self reproduction is obscene!

You're certainly not alone.I can't even count the number of times people have looked at me in complete shock when I say I don't want kids. 

I don't want kids either.
