Dating Site Rules for Parents

Finding love online as a single parent


 

Navigating through the dating world can be scary for anyone. Find out how to surf the web for love as a single parent.

 

1. Don’t Feel Guilty

Some children may not be so thrilled at the idea of their mom or dad dating again, especially if there has been a divorce or death. This shouldn’t discourage you from dating and you are not a bad parent for caring about your own needs. It’s human nature to want a companion and in time, your children will come to understand that. There is no reason why you can’t date and be an excellent parent at the same time.

 

2. Be Safe

As a parent, you have an obligation to protect your safety not only for yourself but for your children, as well. Never give away personal information like your address or telephone number on a public website. If you are approached by an interesting prospect, arrange to meet in a public place via your Internet dating website. Make sure a friend knows where you are at all times.

 

3. Be Open About Having Children

Dating sites can be very precise these days. Users can even search for partners based on whether or not they have or want kids. Be sure to mention you have kids so every prospect is aware. Some people may not be open to the idea of dating someone with children and that is obviously, not the right person for you.

 

4. Talk to Your Children About Your Dating

When you are ready to bring someone home to meet your children, explain to them why dating someone is important to you. Sometimes, children just need to hear their parent is looking for someone who can keep them company and make them happy. They want you to be happy. Just be sure to mention that they make you happy, too, and that no one can ever replace them.
