Single Parent Dating: Find a Committed Partner

At EliteSingles we’re proud to have a diverse membership base with users from all over Canada. And, with the majority of our members falling between the ages of 30-55, we’re leaders in assisting with single parent dating. If you’re a single parenting re-entering the dating world and interested in meeting other Canadian single dads or moms, EliteSingles has you covered! Read on to learn more about how we work for you.

Single Parents, Dating and 'Typical' Families

Over the last few decades the idea of the “typical” Canadian family has moved and changed far from traditional nuclear family unit. In fact, according to the most recent Canadian census over 19% of children live with one parent, while almost 10% of kids lived in a stepfamily. All of this goes to show that if you’re a single parent in Canada, you’re far from alone — there’s over a million of you in the same boat! 

As a single parent, dating is something that can be challenging to balance with the responsibility of raising kids. To help make single parent dating easier, EliteSingles provides an established and trustworthy platform to find fellow singles who are interested in committing to a long-term relationship and are respectful of your situation as a single parent.

Single Mom Dating, Single Dad Dating and the Quest for Balance

Whether you're a single dad or a single mom, dating and parenting both make demands on your time. That means dating with kids requires a balancing act — one that’s easier to juggle when you can connect with others who have similar relationships and lifestyles. After all, your time is precious and, if you’re going to balance work and family demands with dating, you want the people you meet online to be worth it. 

However, in this age of online dating it's easier than ever to find fellow singles who understand and share your lifestyle. It’s really no wonder so many single parents decide to register with sites like EliteSingles to meet a well-suited partner.

Timing and Certainty is Everything

Once you’ve met someone with whom you feel a spark and can imagine a future with, it’s only natural that you’ll want to introduce them to the important people in your life. However, dating with kids in the mix it can make things a little more complicated with extra emotions and feelings to consider. Before introducing children to new partners it’s important to take your time and make sure you’ve gauged a real and lasting commitment from your partner to you and your relationship. After all, children need to know that an addition to the family is a positive bonus and not someone that will rock the stability of family life.
