Single Parents' Day is March 21st, and it's a wonderful occasion to let the single parents in your life know that you see what a great job they do or, if you're a single parent yourself, to give yourself a (well-deserved) pat on the back.
At Elite Singles we wanted to celebrate by looking at dating for parents: what makes it great, and what you need to know to make it even better. Happily, we can ignore these silly misconceptions in favour of a simple, happy truth: our most recent member study has revealed that parents are really, really dateable.
There’s lots of advice out there for how to be a single parent and still have a love life, but not many people talk about the other side of the scenario – what it’s like to date someone who is a single parent.
If you’ve never dated someone with children before, it’s important to know whether you’re ready or not before things get complicated and someone ends up getting hurt.
58% of single moms and dads would choose to mention the fact that have kids in their online dating profile, with 18% saving the news for the 'sending messages' stage and a further 20% for the first date.
