Single parents online dating RULES
Single parents have got it pretty tough when it comes to free time, which makes getting out there and going on dates really damn difficult. you’ve thought “No way!!” to the idea of trying out any of those single parent dating sites out there, then you might actually want to have another think. It’s a different ballgame now.
There are tons of free dating websites out there now, and tons of people on them, too. That’s because the online dating phenomenon is now part of the mainstream, and people are much more at home with the idea that meeting someone through an online dating site is just as valid as meeting them in somewhere like a bar.
If you think about it logically (especially as a single parent), the kind of person you’re likely to meet in a bar and the circumstances you’re likely to meet them under are often not really conducive to creating the conditions for a lasting relationship… Although it depends on how drunk you are and where you take it, I guess! A singles online dating site, on the other hand, can help you get to know someone slowly and well before you even decide you want to meet for a date, and use up your precious parenting time.
There are a few simple codes of conduct to ensure safe and productive use of an online dating site, so if you’re ready to get into the single parents online dating foray, then here are some handy tips:
- Think about the kind of person that would be good for you and vice versa – also, think about what kinds of person wouldn’t be;
- Don’t get frustrated if you don’t meet someone straight away – as with in real life, it can take some time to find someone you’re really into and are really mutually compatible with;
- Like any form of social media, online dating sites can be addictive, limit your time on a daily basis;
- Don’t be shy about tactfully telling somebody you’re not interested or to back off if you don’t like how they talk to or approach you;
- Be completely honest when you write your profile – but be very cautious about what personal information you give out there and when you’re chatting;
- If you do decide you like someone enough to meet them for a date, always arrange to meet in a public place and tell a friend where you’re going, who with, and when you’ll be back;
- Don’t rush into a heavy physical or emotional relationship – remember, it takes time to truly get to know someone properly.
