Willie Garson's son never wants him to get married.

The 47-year-old actor - who is best known for playing Carrie Bradshaw's flamboyant best friend Stanford Blatch in 'Sex And The City' - cherishes the close Bond he has with adopted son Nathen, nine, but would love to settle down eventually.

He said: "I warn Nathen that in five years time, he isn't going to want to talk to me.

"He says, 'You can never get married.' He wants me all to himself - and I quite enjoy that.

"I'd still like to meet a nice girl and have someone to grow old with.

"I go on dates in New York but nothing serious right now. I haven't had a girlfriend in a long time."

Willie admits he has come close to marrying in the past, but won't be too upset if he never ties the knot.

He added to Grazia magazine: "My feeling has always been that it's fine if I never get married.

"I've got close to it, but I'm glad we didn't. I was in a relationship, she didn't want to have kids and it ended. Not because of that, but it was always an issue."
