What should I do if I want kids but can't find a husband?

I'm 28 and I just got out of a 5 year toxic relationship. I want kids badly but can't seem to find a good guy who wants what I want. I don't want to be 40 years old trying to push out my first child. What should I do? I've tried dating apps and I have no problem catching the attention of men but the conversations never go anywhere. I'm honestly socially awkward and a bit of an introvert which makes my conversations quite stale. Although my last relationship was toxic, I felt like I could be myself around him and I never felt stupid articulating my thoughts. I keep comparing myself to my old classmates on facebook who are at least on their 2nd or 3rd child. When will it be my turn and what do I do?????

    I wouldn’t rely on dating apps to tell me who I was compatible with. You can confront your anxiety/fears yourself if you really want to.  Get involved in things you enjoy, try to be positive and more outgoing, volunteer for a nonprofit you care about, join community events, a sports team, join a gym, exercise. You’ll feel better about yourself, develop confidence and meet people who have similar interests, making it easier to make friends. See where the friendships go, it’s a good way of getting to know the complete person. Don’t rush into anything or settle for less than what you’re looking for.  If you both like each other you can try dating and if that doesn’t work out, there’s still the friendship.  Even if you’re unable to have kids, there’s other options like adoption.

    Visit your local Catholic Services, BUY one like anybody else.

    Buying Aliens children is not popular now, as foreigners have gotten savvy and now charge huge sums

     could adopt, many kids are looking for an accepting family and I'm sure you could give them one
