Are you a single parent in the US looking to find a loving partner?
When you’re a single parent in the US, things just aren’t as simple as they were before children – especially when it comes to dating.When dating with kids it’s so important to be with someone who really understands your role as a parent and appreciates the fact that your child or children will often come first.In 2007, I met my husband on a little website called My Space.(You may have heard of it.) One evening, I was cruising the site for dates, entering all the criteria that mattered to me — height, education, facial hair — when a picture of the man who would one day be the father of my children blowing a noise maker with his nose was so captivating that I knew I had to have him.The best thing about Single Parent Dating is that you don’t need to hide your parental status or be concerned that it will put off a potential partner; with Elite Singles you’ll only meet singles that have indicated their enthusiasm to date single parents.
By connecting you with like-minded singles, the chances of meeting a committed partner greatly increase – it’s simply boosting your luck in love!After assuring my husband that this wasn't some elaborate scheme to cheat on him, I decided to see whether or not checking the "has a kid" box made me more or less desirable in the online dating world.I created profiles on two online dating sites: Plenty of Fish (POF) and Ok Cupid. I chose those sites mainly because they both ask whether or not you have children when creating your profile.One-third of members aged 23 to 50 years old are single moms and dads ready to get back into the dating pool.While not everyone has made the shift, those who have tend to get results.According to Match's blog, “single parents who have dated online had over 2X the number of dates last year than single parents who haven’t dated online.” Furthermore, “Seventy-nine percent have dated 1 or more person in the last three months versus 75 percent of single parents who don’t online date."Breaking down the success rate of dating numerically seems to gloss over the agony those single parents underwent in making online profiles to snag those dates.
