Why was Modamily started?

I noticed a good portion of family and friends spending their 20s and 30s focused on their careers and putting off starting a family. As they got older and more frustrated by the short term casual relationships they found on the popular dating apps of the day, they had limited options for finding a like-minded person who was ready to start a family. There came an enormous amount of pressure for finding a partner due to the ticking of the biological clock and family pressure. I wanted to build a platform where everyone is ready to start a family, either in a romantic, co-parenting, or known donor relationship.

What's the difference (pros/cons?) between turning to a sperm donor and finding a co-parent?

The main difference is the other person is involved with the raising of your child. We feel that co-parenting provides more support to the child because it involves two parents that are physically, financially, and emotionally committed. In a gay/lesbian couple relationship looking for a sperm/egg donor, the involvement of the donor is usually more limited, but if the donor has some kind of relationship with the child, it can provide them with a better sense of identity about where they come from. Healthy, happy, and balanced children are what we are trying to achieve and statistically, having both a mother and father within a child’s life dramatically improves chances for a happy and balanced upbringing. Also, donor conceived children sometimes develop health problems related to their father’s genetic makeup, for example they pass down the genes which may make them more susceptible to certain diseases such as diabetes or cancer. Knowing this information can help with diagnosis and even preventative treatment. Therefore knowing the identity of a donor has many benefits for the child, through to when they become adults. 



Is the idea that people who find each other on Modamily later hook up and actually have sex until the woman is pregnant - or through insemination?

The fundamental concept behind Modamily is that we provide a platform where members can meet like-minded people ready to start a family. We connect people interested in a romantic, co-parenting, or donor relationship.  Modamily makes match recommendation using data science and personal matchmaking to help our members find someone that wants to start a family. The way they start a family is up to them.

If people find a good parent match on Modamily - why just have a baby together and not also start a relationship?

Totally! The desire to start a family is why men and women use Modamily, there is nothing preventing the development of a romantic relationship.

How do you think the fast track to parenthood, through a social forum online, will change the way families are formed in the future?

A niche dating platform like Modamily will definitely help increase the odds of finding someone in a shorter period of time. This goes for straight or gay singles and couples looking for a donor. Everyone joins for the same purpose: to start a family. People are staying single longer and putting off marriage, sites like Modamily can fill the void by helping those that still want to fulfill dreams of having a child. There’s plenty of time to find Mr. or Mrs. Right, but only a limited time to find Mommy or Daddy Right.

What has been the inspiration for Modamily (other websites or such?), and when do you think the first successful new family will be formed through Modamily?

When I moved back to New York, I found that many of my friends had met their significant others on sites like Match.com, eHarmony, jdate, or OkCupid and some even got married and had kids. These people weren’t weirdos or had three heads, rather, they were just regular people like me looking for that connection. However, I also felt that there was a sub-set of people that were frustrated with the predominantaly short term casual relationships they were finding on the dating apps of the last few years. I felt that if I could build a platform where everyone is there for the sole purpose finding someone they can start a family with. Everyone is on their own timeline when deciding to become a family and we merely provide a forum to for people to meet like-minded individuals.
