under normal circumstances...

...i wouldn't blog on these types of topics, but i have very little to chat about today...not much going on...and i think i need some perspective.

last night, i had dinner with an old roomie, and his boyfriend. Said boyfriend is in his 40s and ready for children--all he needs really is a "host." That's where I come in. He lives in this amazing duplex--perfect place really--and says I can live there rent free, 6 months minimum, if i'll give him my eggs. There's also an option to be artificially inseminated and be the surrogate. at first thought, I wanted to blurt out "nooooo!"

But then, is it such a bad idea? i'm just not so sure...

I am a straight man, so I really don't have a horse in this race. But I have seen Juno and heard stories, and I know this could be a delicate situation for your emotions.

Of course if they dangled six to seven figures in front of you, then you have to sell out and do it.

if it was for a fertility clinic i would say go for it because its anonymous. but in this case isnt it a strong possibility that you would be interacting with your "child" after its born? that might be a lil squirrely.

OK. Take a deep breath. You don't want to do something permanent that you may regret. look at the title "under normal circumstances"... This will not be your child. You want a child of your own. Just think about it for a while, that's all.

ur right angda...in theory, many things sound--well, sound. But "under normal circumstances," I'm 99.9 percent sure I'm not doing it. But, very interesting proposition, and one I don't get everyday.

wow....while in theory it sounds very giving and all blockbuster movie happy ending but I don't know how I would feel knowing that a child of mine is running around without me as Mommy. that's deep........

what am i doing wrong in my life that i never have to face these kinds of situations?!

wow.

i mean one one hand thats so flattering that they would ask you to be the surrogate, but on the other, thats just such a HUGE undertaking.

...i couldn't do it.
