Dakota Fanning doesn`t like dating

Dakota Fanning doesn`t like dating London: Actress Dakota Fanning shies away from dating because she cannot be bothered with romance until she finds the man she plans to marry.

The 18-year-old, who found fame as a child star with her performance in 2001`s ‘I Am Sam’, said her parents Steven and Heather were childhood sweethearts who married when they finished college and she wants her relationship to emulate theirs.

"I don`t really date. I have a weird vision of relationships because my parents have known each other since second grade, and they got married right out of college. I`ve always thought that`s what it`s supposed to be like, and if it`s not, then I don`t want to waste my time on it.

"Even when I was 14, I was like, `I`m not gonna marry this person. What`s the point of doing it?` It`s not me being naive. I just know what it`s supposed to be like. And I think until I feel that, I cannot be bothered."
