Single Parent Dating: find a committed partner

At EliteSingles we have many diverse members from all around Canada. That said, many of our members are aged between 30 and 55: resulting in many single parents dating and looking for love on our site. If you want to meet other Canadian single dads or single moms, dating with EliteSingles right for you. Join us today!

Single parents, dating and 'typical' families

The latest Canadian census revealed something interesting: gone are the days of the nuclear family. Consider this - one in eight families are parented by single moms, 10% of children live in stepfamilies and lone-parent families account for 14% of Canadian familial households.1 In other words, if you are a single parent, you’re far from alone – there are thousands in the same boat, many of whom are looking for a committed relationship with a partner who understands their situation.

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. To do both successfully requires a balancing act - one that is made esier to juggle when you can connect with others who have similar relationships and lifestyles. After all, your time is precious and, if you are going to balance work and family demands with dating, you want the people you meet to be worth it. Happily, the advent of online dating means that it's easier than ever to find fellow singles who understand your lifestyle. It’s really no wonder so many single parents decide to register with sites like EliteSingles in order to meet a suitable partner.

Relax, you've got this

Getting back into dating can seem very daunting, especially for single parents who haven't been on the market in a long time, or who are going through their first dating experience since the break down of a marriage or long-term relationship. But there's no need to feel concerned; single parent dating is a fresh start for lasting happiness, so remember to really relax - it's the best way to really enjoy dating.

It’s also good to keep in mind that it's ok to be a partner as well as parent. You will always be Mom or Dad but you need to give yourself permission to also be someone's romantic interest. Don't feel guilty for going dates or for doing something for you: remember that a happy parent is a great way to create happy kids!

Timing is everything

When it comes to single parent dating concerns, there are a few common ones: nerves about getting back out there, corncerns about juggling family and romantic commitments and, one of the biggest - that children will react touchily to a new partner. This is a valid concern; it’s easy for children to feel jealous that of the time that’s being spent on someone else, or to worry that they are being replaced.

To prevent this from happening (and to give your new relationship breathing space), it’s wise to take your time before introducing your children to your partner. After all, you don't want your kids to get attached to someone who might be temporary; it's best to wait until the person seems committed to you before bringing them into your world.

Hold out for a great match

The most important thing about single parent dating is that you only spend your precious time with people who could actually be potential partners. Because aside from being a waste of time, going on bad dates is very disheartening! That's why our extensive personality test exists; to ensure that we only match you with men and women who suit you and who thus might be a great match.

We look at your personality, relationship goals and location requirements in Canada; a three-step process that boosts your chances in finding someone truly special. So if you're a busy single dad or single mom, dating with EliteSingles can work for you!
