"I just ended my relationship with Andy. It hit me really hard that I want kids in my life," Stanger tweeted. "You have to agree on the non-negotiables."
The 49-year-old, third-generation matchmaker got engaged to Friedman in May of 2009. The couple planned to wed in 2010, but pushed back the date several times because he couldn't commit to having a family, Stanger claims.

"Andy's a great guy and we'll always remain friends, but he wants me to be something that I can't be," she told Life & Style magazine. "We're better friends than lovers."
Stanger, however, is still optimistic about both finding the right guy and becoming a mom.
"A good guy is out there for me, I know it," Stanger told the site. "A life without kids has no meaning to me. I think the most important job in the world is being a parent or stepparent!"
