Well, it seems that marriage and relationships are ending quite quickly now days, which sometimes and quite often leave a child/children living with one parent. But the time comes when a single mother or father needs to find a companion. Being a single mother or father has never been the easiest position to be in when looking for a new partner. This is sometimes the case, when meeting a new partner, when they have no children of their own, You may think that you are seen by them as to be carrying a lot of “baggage”.
There are also some people that will not want to have children for numerous reasons, this sometimes can then make them unsuitable partners.
The fact is, being a single parent can be lonely, your social life is very restricted, and you could become quite isolated, and you find that you tend to spend weekends, or evening alone.
This is were I believe that online dating sites are a god send, to this specific criteria of persons. Being a single parent myself I know, this is why I decided to spend time log-in on to dating sites, but my assumptions soon became apparent, this being that people tend to look down slightly, on single parents, or don’t fully understand that you cant drop everything, just to go shopping, or down the pub.
As many of my friends are also single parents too, they all think the same as I did, that people don’t seem or want to be interested in them once they have told someone they have children.
But saying this, a lot of woman/men know that single parents, are usually more caring, more sincere, gentle, etc.
Being single you should not have to or feel the need to make adjustments in your life.
As I stated earlier marriage in modern society, is becoming less, and more people living together it is a major fact of life and that there are a lot of single parents out there.
As the Internet has revolutionized online dating, now there really is no reason to be single any more. The main advantages of online dating, is that you can build up a slow relationship, with someone, 24hrs a day. Furthermore you can select the type of person that you would like to meet.
Couple of key points to remember, on first dates.
If your children are old enough to understand, do tell them that you are dating. And when introducing them to your date, make sure that you do keep your kids well informed.
Don’t just talk about your children on first dates, especially if they do not have children of their own, they may not necessarily want to chat about yours constantly.
Well good luck, I hope you found this to be helpful.
