Single dads, this one’s for you.
If you’ve got a kid (or two) and you’re looking to get into the dating game, you might have realized things are a bit different than your childless days.
First of all, kudos. Dating is hard, and dating with kids is even harder.
Starting an online profile can be a good way to transition into the dating scene again - or, if you’ve been at it for a while - or to simply open up the pool of potential picks.
There are sites designed specifically for parents, and there are also plenty like Zoosk and Match, whose large memberships and records of success precede them.
Here are some of our favorite sites for fathers looking for love:
Zoosk has all the benefits of a dating site you could possibly want: a simple sign-up, 3 ways to match, and a large pool of potential matches.
Want to let the site do the work for you? After all, you’re a busy dad. Zoosk’s behavioral matchmaking technology learns your interests based on the people and profiles you like, and brings you matches based on this information.
Buf if you’re feeling choosy, you can also search for people the old-fashioned way.
And if you want a swiping experience without the icky feeling of using an app, Zoosk’s carousel feature allows you to quickly see singles and make your move.
You want the best for your kids, but you also deserve the best for yourself, and Match can help with that.
As one of the most well-established dating sites, they’ve spent the last 20+ years fine-tuning their matchmaking capabilities.
For you, that means better connections, better relationships, and a better future.
And an added bonus: Match is known for its commitment to user privacy. You can use the site in “Private Mode” which allows you to pick and choose who can see your profile. Because even if you’re dating online, you can still fly under the radar.
Dads, we know you don’t want to introduce just anyone to your kids. It’s a big step in a relationship, and it’s important they meet someone only when you’re sure they’re the right person.
EliteSingles is a great place for finding a potential partner that matches up to your standards (and your kids).
Their in-depth personality test for new users helps narrow down the dating pool so you won’t spend precious time weeding through profiles when you could be spending it with your kids.
