How I Met Your Mother star tells OK!, not only is he glad he came out of the closet, he's being just as open about dating and wanting to have kids. When asked if he would like to have children, the former Doogie Howser, M.D., star - who is reportedly in a relationship with actor David Burtka -said, 'Eventually, yeah. My life right now is a bit of a roller coaster, so I think there's going to be some traveling years before that happens, but I think I'd make a good dad. 'I'm 33 and most of my friends are coupled up with babies, so I find myself feeling much older than I am,' he admitted to OK! at a CBS party on Jan. 18. But the 33-year-old enjoys dating and revealed a favorite romantic night for him would include 'a nice dinner at a classy restaurant, maybe some rose petals.' And 'healthy breath goes a long way on a date,' he smiled. Neil was pleased by the muted reaction to his announcement that he was gay. 'It's been a bit of a non-story. People were like, ëOh, really? Interesting.' I think that speaks well to our society today.'I just never wanted to live my life in a way where I was back-dooring and cowering and trying to avoid and so I think the statement that I made quieted the speculation.'
