Welcome to Future Fathers, an innovative approach to dating and community..
I have created this online community in response to a conundrum that I and many other gay men face. Becoming a parent, for anyone, is no minor feat. And when you're a gay man, there are added legal and social challenges. On top of that, it is important to find a mate who is of a similar mindset. What do you do when it is difficult to find like-minded men away from the computer, and when the men online seem to either want to "just hook up" or express no interest in raising a family?
This is where Future Fathers comes into play. I intend this community to be:
* a virtual meeting-place for gay men who have an expressed interest in raising children, in the hope that some might start long-term relationships;
* a community for sharing concern, advice, support, and hope with gay men pursuing fatherhood; and
* an online clearinghouse of resources to assist men in foster parenting, adoption, surrogacy, and parenting.
This site is born out of both a lifelong desire to be a father, and a brainstorm that has seized my imagination. I'll be gradually building up this site over the next weeks and months, and am hopeful that we can create a very special corner of the internet.
Hope and peace,
Founder, Future Fathers
