Are You A Parent Looking to Date? We Have Some Advice Just for You
Don’t know where to start? You’re not alone!
In a pre-COVID survey, we asked single parents how often they went on dates and over a third said they hadn’t been on a date in over a year. Even more surprisingly, 45% said they never dated at all after having their children!
Well, we are looking to change that. It can be intimidating to begin using a single parent dating site, so as well as our Match app features, we have an abundance of advice for people using dating sites as single parents. From the top first date advice for everyone to examples of profiles that have worked for other single parents, we are here to ease you into the online dating world.

Single Parent Dating Shouldn’t Be A Burden
It’s official, we’ve banned the ‘B’ word… Baggage! What were you thinking of?!
Being a parent is a beautiful and selfless experience. Who wouldn’t want to date someone who was serious and looking for a sincere connection with someone special?
Life experience is a pivotal part of becoming a full and interesting person, not a burden to be embarrassed about or hide from your dating profile. Your family isn’t baggage that takes away from someone getting to know you and enjoy your company, children add an extra element – not to mention fun – to your dating journey.
Being open, honest and earnest are the most attractive attributes in a new special someone. Let’s face it, you’re not going to be everyone’s cup of tea – and you should be happy about that! Filtering out people who don’t have the same goals and hopes for the future as you is a necessary part of dating, and at Match we make it easier by asking about you and how you see your life. It’s important to fit people in around your priorities and not the other way around!
