I want to start a family in few years but I don't want a boyfriend or a husband. I can easily find thousands of sperm donors online and get impregnated. I don't know how to explain my decision to my family but I know my friends will be supportive.
if you´re alone and bitter, you should get a cat, not a baby. this sounds exaggerated harsh and i don´t know your actual personal reasoning but why would you intentionally put a child through a suboptimal life without having a father figure? having a child isn´t about you. it´s about the child.
If you have thoroughly researched the life of a single mother and parenting responsibilities and you're doing it for the right reasons, not just "I don't wanna deal with someone else", then tell your parents it's a decision you've thought through and are happy with and you'd appreciate their support. However I suggest adoption because you would be helping a child without a family rather than bringing another one into the world who you know won't have a father.
Here is what you should say, "Mom, dad, I have something to say. I am going to do the dumbest, stupidest thing I have every done in my life. It is going to make my life a financial mess and it is going to screw up some kid's life too!"
I think your making this decision to quickly, I bet you will meet guy down the road who you will want to have children with cause raising a kid alone is hard work and takes tons of effort. So you should really think this through again.
Just be honest tell them how you feeling. But my advice is your child must have a father too. I think you are being very selfish right now you don't want a boyfriend, husband that's your wish. Your child will need a father figure. You going to have a baby then you need to look for what's best for THE BABY not you.
