Top dating tips for single parents

Getting back into the dating game as a single parent can seem daunting. Where do you look? How do you find the time to go out? How much should you tell your kids or the cutie across the table? Our relationship experts help you navigate the single-parent dating scene.

Getting ready

Whether you are six months post-divorce or six years, there is no right time to start dating. f you’re looking to get your heart pounding, try some cardio. Why do you want to start dating? What are you looking to find? What needs are you looking to fill? Expecting dating to fulfill all your needs is unrealistic and might attract people who are not right for you.

Finding the time

Once you have decided that you are ready to date, it might feel impossible to find the time. Single parents need to consider that this may be true. Time with friends, time spent on activities that don’t include kids or work, and time alone are all important. Parents who have a shared custody agreement may have evenings without the kids that they can use to schedule dates.

Where to look

Dating has changed since you were single, and so have you. You are older now, hopefully wiser, and have kids to consider. Look for people who like to do the same things as you do. They offer a casual group setting and regularly scheduled meet-ups, and allow you to do something while you’re getting to know the other person.

Fling or ring

Whether you are looking for a fling, a ring, or something in between, remember that dating is part of the journey, not a means to an end. Do not focus on finding the one; concentrate on meeting new people, developing new friendships, and having fun.
