The struggle of dating as a single mom is so real! We all want a solid, loving relationship with a partner who enhances our lives (we've already got kids to take care of, not looking for any man children here). But for so many single mothers the frustrations are the same - dating is too exhausting, and the good men are few and far between.
We're here to tell you that you can have a positive online dating experience, and you can find a guy with substance. It all takes a little patience, yes, maybe a bit of luck, and a better dating site.
Here are our 3 favorites:
Elite Singles is one of the most popular dating sites around, but still manages to offer a uniquely personalized experience.
The site’s compatibility model takes a psychological approach to matching, and is based on your answers to a wide range of questions.
These questions cover everything from the personal to the general and, of course, there are the ever important ones about children.
And when you filter like this from the outset, you’ll save a lot of time later on, knowing you won’t be matched with anyone who doesn’t want kids or isn’t ready for a family. Because who has time for that?
Single mom but not in your 30s or 40s? Don’t fret - and definitely don’t go joining dating apps and sites meant for people a decade younger than you. SilverSingles is the site you should try.
A dating community meant especially for singles 50+, SilverSingles is a great option for busy single moms serious about finding someone to love.
The site uses a matchmaking algorithm that’s completely powered by the answers that users provide to their personality quiz. That means the matches you get sent will be people you’ll actually have things in common with, and not just random men in your 25-mile radius.
Probably the dating site with the most name recognition, Match.com has grown into one of the biggest and best dating sites since its inception twenty years ago.
The dating site’s search tool is perfect for moms who want to filter by kids, income, age, religion and other deal breakers. And one of the best parts of Match actually occurs offline.
They regularly host meetup events, such as bar and restaurant outings, which creates the kind of community you won’t find on any other site.
