A woman I know does not want to date and does not want to get married. However, she wants a baby. She thought of people she knows and even put a personals ad on Craigslist. Of the 200 or so potential candidates, she selected me. She wanted a married man (so there would be no chance of him harassing or stalking her) who had proven fertility and wanted some degree of cuteness and intelligence. We have a contract that bars me from any rights to the child and protects me from any financial obligations. There are no romantic intentions on the part of either one of us. We are having fun with it, but are both very aware of the goal.
She is definitely not the type I would normally be attracted to, but it’s been a lot of fun. She is enjoying it a lot too, and has told me many times how glad she is to have started this process. We’re only a few weeks into it, but this last rendezvous may have been timed about right.
SO: Am I having an affair?
