Single Male Online Daters Would Father Babies for Their Friends

August 17, 2009

MIAMI BEACH, Fla., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ — Last month, celebrity look-a-like sperm donors were all the rage, with single aspiring Mothers in Los Angeles choosing from sperm donors who resemble their celebrity of choice, which includes Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Ben Affleck doppelgangers. This month, it’s all about “No Strings Attached Babies,” where single aspiring Mothers ask their single guy friends to father their children, minus financial and other responsibilities. While Hollywood is full of single Moms who chose to adopt, including Edie Falco, Sheryl Crow, Madonna and Sharon Stone, single celebrities such as Camryn Manheim and reportedly, Minnie Driver, have both had No Strings Attached Babies. At leading online dating websites Date.com (http://www.date.com), Matchmaker.com (http://www.matchmaker.com), and Amor.com (http://www.amor.com) we polled our members to find out if they would consider having a No Strings Attached Baby.

According to the results, majority of single male online daters responded that they would make like David Crosby and father a child with a gal pal. 30%, meanwhile, insisted that it must be legally stipulated that they were Fathers in name only. Meanwhile, 42.9% of single women have admitted that they have thought a lot about approaching a single guy friend to father their child.

“Majority of today’s single women still want to find true love, enter into a committed relationship and have children with a life partner. Yet, as the biological clock ticks down for many single women, it’s no longer stigmatized for them to choose other avenues such as adoption, anonymous sperm donation, and no strings attached babies, to become Mothers,” said Shira Zwebner, Relationship Advisor for Date.com, Matchmaker.com and Amor.com. “According to a May 2009 report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, out-of-wedlock births are rising, and amongst women ages 30 to 34 there has been a 34% increase since 2002. I predict that number will just continue to rise as more and more women realize they just don’t need to find their soulmate to have a baby. As a result, single guys shouldn’t be surprised if their single girlfriends ask them to meet for a drink and then request a no strings attached sperm donation.”

Last week, we conducted a new survey of thousands of male online daters nationwide, asking: A single girl friend asks you to father a baby, no strings attached. Would you do it?

    Yes, but it would have to be legally stipulated: 30.0%

    Following are the complete results:

    Yes, it had crossed my mind: 43.3%

    a Dad with a friend than keep holding out: 23.3%
    No, I don't want to be a Dad without my life partner. I think it's
    important for children to grow up with married parents: 19.6%
    No, I've never even considered it: 10.0%

    Last week, we conducted a new survey of thousands of female online daters
    nationwide, asking: Have you ever considered being a single Mom?
