Single parent dating: meet like-minded parents online

At EliteSingles we're committed to helping all singles find long-term happiness. We think this is possible for everyone if you’re truly compatible with your partner, which is why we introduce our members to one another based on both personality chemistry and relationship deal-breakers. We realise that single parents’ time is precious, so we verify all profiles and won’t show you inactive users, meaning you can meet people suitable for the long-term more easily.

Single parent dating: how it works

We find your matches by analysing key aspects of your personality, which we understand from the answers to your personality questionnaire. Then, of course, we look at your personal search criteria and ensure we suggest people who actually fit with your life. This means if you’re only looking for a partner who has or would like children, we’ll help you find them more easily. Or, if the stresses of being a single parent leave you short on energy for something long-distance, you can limit your search to those close to home. Through our online messaging systems, you can get to know someone on your terms before you meet – this way you know your first date is going to be more special when you do arrange it. 

Single parent dating with EliteSingles gives you the opportunity to define what you want, so you can be confident that those you meet online are people you genuinely might be with long-term.

When to introduce?

Dating with the responsibilities of parenthood may present some complications; so it may be sensible to keep a few things in mind before you set off. Speaking to us with some exclusive advice, psychologist Dr. Leah Klungness stressed the importance of holding back on children-partner introductions until the time when “you’re exclusive and both see a potential commitment”. Accordingly, “a good rule of thumb is to keep your children’s involvement with a boyfriend or girlfriend a step or two behind your relationship status”.
