How/where would a single women wanting to conceive find a man to help her? Not using IVF or DI. (No relationship. Just a sperm donor)

If a single woman wanted to have a child but wanted to actually conceive with a man, not use IVF or DI, how would she go about finding said man? She doesn't want just any random stranger off the street. She's really wanting to conceive this way.. a more personal way then insemination.

If I wanted a child but nothing to do with the biological father other than his sperm, I would go to a lab and buy the sperm for artificial insemination (or whatever method). A reputable lab screens the donors for health problems and genetic problems. At a dating site, there is no way to determine this. A fine, healthy-looking man can be carrying problems that would be devastating to you and your child.
However, if you do go the dating site route, he may want something in writing to say he is not financially responsible for the child in the future.

It's tough due to STD issues , but if you truly just want to get pregnant with no strings attached ... Have a one night stand(s).

In this case, the woman should probably consider using a dating site in which she can find someone and get to know him. She could also approach some of the men she has known for a while and talk to them about it. Basically, she should take time with a man she identifies so as to learn about them and decide whether he is what he would want. Additionally, she can also check with the numerous sperm donor centers and make her request.

lf you go the date site or known friend route, you may not want to divulge any information as to your intent. He may WANT to be a part of the child's life. lt could get messy. First answer was best, go about it anonymously.
