I’m right there in the trenches online at single parents' dating sites and on apps, looking for love and, mostly, looking to stay out of trouble.To do both successfully requires a balancing act - one that is made easier to juggle when you can connect with others who have similar relationships and lifestyles.After all, your time is precious and, if you are going to balance work and family demands with dating, you want the people you meet to be worth it.In other words, if you are a single parent, you’re far from alone – there are thousands in the same boat, many of whom are looking for a committed relationship with a partner who understands their situation.Whether you're a single dad or a single mom, dating and parenting both make demands on your time.Once you’ve set age and distance preferences, you start swiping.A simple swipe left, and that dream guy is gone forever; a simple swipe right, and he could end up a match for life! The most frustrating aspect about Tinder: Once you swipe left, the man is gone for life unless you purchase an upgrade with the ability to take back your “swiping decision.” Plus, this site seems to be loaded with men who are simply collecting matches and “liking” you because they’re bored and need something to look at. ) In short, Tinder is known to be a hook-up app, so you’ll have to hunt hard to strike gold. —there you are, pretty as a picture in your new profile.Cons: Since you’re limited with your search parameters, you may sift through a lot of matches just to find one decent guy.

While there have been one or two saucy gentlemen I’ve come across, for the most part the men have wanted to go on dates pretty quickly.From search alone you only know age and distance, and then it’s up to the men to fill in the blanks briefly with some profile description. This leaves you wondering things like: • How tall is he? (My experience with Tinder was that men could waste your precious single-mom minutes messaging you back and forth.) Bumble’s biggest plus: You can “take back” a negative, left swipe for free (unlike Tinder)!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.
