Catch Me Elsewhere
As a single mom and a blogger, I have talked to and interviewed many other single parents and we all agree upon one thing, “Dating is difficult to do as a single parent.” It isn’t easy meeting someone with kids in tow and who has time to hang out in bars and clubs? I know I most certainly don’t! Thus the questions always comes up, “How do I get back out there?” Followed by, “I don’t even remember how to date.”
For me, dating has been a chore! What’s more is FINDING someone to date has been like finding a needle in a haystack! I live in the suburbs and everyone seems to move from LA out here, once they get married. There aren’t a lot of single guys around. I’m not one to go to bars and clubs unless a friend is having a birthday gathering at one, so I have no idea where the single men are. During my son’s extracurricular activities, I try to scope out the single dads but you have to be very careful when doing this. First off, you don’t want to do a lot of staring, you have to kind of slick about it when checking for a wedding ring. Second of all, people seem to know that YOU are the single mom and try to “protect” their men at all costs, as if you are a husband thief or something. It actually gets kind of crazy, so I pretty much stay to myself, bring a book or magazine and not make too much small talk, especially with the men. Crazy right?
As single parents, we have some much on our plates that getting out there and actually meeting someone in the grocery store or your kid’s softball game may happen to some but not for too many of us, so what do we do? Match.com recognizes what we, as single parents are going through and believe that we don’t have to give up on our search for love because of our situations. As a matter of fact, there are over 1/3 of Match.com members who are single parents who want to meet other single parents. How cool is that? To be able to find other single parents who are looking for love, just like you, in one place…YES!
