Ever wonder about the members of the different top rated online dating sites? Curious about their visitor demographics? Check out our latest research study, entitled the Demographics of Online Dating for some eye-opening information about the membership at each of the major online dating sites.
We here at WebPersonalsOnline.com realize how daunting it can be to raise children, hold down a job, do both without the help of a spouse or significant other and try to find time for romance. Single moms and dads all over the country have a tremendous number of responsibilities and are not always able to find the time to go out, to participate in the social scene and meet other single moms and dads as easily as men and women who do not have the additional responsibility of also being parents. There is a certain amount of freedom that we all have before parenthood that is usually no longer there once we become parents. Not that we regret it because being a parent is certainly a rewarding and fulfilling experience, but having kids does not prevent a single man or woman from wanting to socialize, to meet other single parents, to want to go out and have some fun, too. Fortunately, online dating sites are making it easier and more convenient than ever for on-the-go moms and dads to meet other single parents for dating and socializing.
One of the fastest growing 'categories', for lack of a better word, of singles who join online personals sites are single parents. Single parents typically do not have as many opportunities to socialize outside of the house and away from the kids, especially if the parent looking for someone to date has custody of the children. Single parents also do not always have as many single friends through whom they would be able to meet someone. It's just a simple fact that parents, generally, socialize with other parents and this may limit the pool of available singles with whom they come in contact. When a single man or woman with children is also a busy professional, with a career--it can make it even more difficult to have an active social life as single working parents may feel somewhat guilty about the fact that their careers already take time away from the time they could be spending with their sons and daughters.
These are just a few issues that single men and women with children face when re-entering the dating scene, such as after a divorce or separation. As a result, many single men with kids and single women with kids are realizing what a new, fun, exciting, and time-saving experience online dating can be. For the busy professional, who is also raising children, joining an online dating site is one of the quickest and most convenient methods to meet other singles. But not all online personals sites are created equal and it is not always easy to search through all of the singles on a site like Match.com to find the specific type of person you may be looking for. That is why we created a customized search form like the one on this page-to help you search through all of the singles on the largest and most popular dating sites online quickly and easily. Give it a try! *Keyword Searches take additional time - please be patient!
We've conveniently added the categories 'Single Dad' and 'Single Mom' so that you can be immediately matched with other single parents who have chosen to use Match.com as their online dating site of choice. Specifically, our customized form above only returns a subset of the single men and women in the Match.com database, the subset who are single parents! We hope that you find this tool useful-whether you are a 'Single Dad' looking for a 'Single Mom' or a 'Single Mom' looking for a 'Single Dad' we realize that your life is already busy and hope that we can save you some time so that you spend more time interacting with other single mothers and fathers online instead of spending countless hours searching through profiles at various dating sites without ever finding the person you would ultimately like to meet.
When using our form, we suggest you use a keyword that may be a hobby or activity that you would like to participate in with the person you eventually have a connection with online. For instance, if you are a single father who likes to golf and you would like to meet a single mom who also has a passion for golfing, replace the keyword 'kids' in the form above with the keyword 'golfing.' Well, you get the idea.
The last thing we would like to say is don't be intimated! If you are new to the online dating scene, odds are there are single people on these sites who are also new to using online personals. Don't feel like you are too old, either. There are single parents online from many different age groups. One thing we always say is that there is someone for everyone. Being a single parent shouldn't limit you from experiencing some of the fun and excitement you had before you had kids-it's just that now it is not an convenient for you to go out and meet people the traditional way. We feel that online dating sites were tailor made for busy professional moms and dads, with careers, with kids, with the additional obligations of being single parents.
Single moms and dads have additional family obligations that can make it harder for them to have an active social life. By opening up their minds to a new way of meeting other single parents and joining an online dating site like Match.com, these men and women will have many new opportunities to find love, to meet other singles, to talk to and communicate with other people just like them who have also taken the step of trying online personals. If you thought you were too busy to meet someone new or if you've ever felt that you can't have an exciting and stimulating social life because you are a parent, we want you to change your attitude, to expand your horizons and we think that you will be pleasantly surprised by the results. Good luck and Happy Dating!
