I think I would feel trapped and depressed if I got married or had kids, because I am very territorial and the thought of sharing my living space with someone terrifies me. Also, I love children, however, I want to devote my life to doing many things and don't wish to take care of them. It seems as if most men won't take you seriously unless you are willing to take on those commitments...
I'm single by the way.

Well yes at least for me I won't take any women seriously unless and until she wants an theses things... And seriously commits
But whatever it is you should just communicate with your SO about this and tell them from the start...
And why would you feel trapped? Do you want to sleep around or something? Or you just want no responsibility but you would be completely loyal is you had no kids?
Your Partner may leave you for it though... They might think that you don't want to commit0

This is information you should volunteer before a man becomes your significant other. Don't wait until the connection has progressed to a relationship without allowing him to make an informed choice about going further with you. It wouldn't be fair for you to divulge this information later on because you would be emotionally trapping a man into dealing with a lifestyle he wouldn't have chosen for himself.
You are right; many men and women will not take someone seriously if they are going to deprive them of marriage or parenthood. They have every right to make that decision because it heavily impacts their future. Just as you wish for them to respect and honor this idea, you should respect and honor theirs. You are just going to have to accept that you will not be compatible emotionally with many men who value marriage and children.4
