Finding the right fit for you and your kids

When you're a single parent, dating can present some interesting challenges. Many single parents feel that they are dating not only for themselves, but also for their children; they seek to find a loving partner and a good role model for their children. Other single parents feel that the parenting side of things is already under control; they simply seek a relationship with someone who understands the commitment of parenthood. In any case, diving into single parent dating is an exciting adventure, and one that many Australian singles are ready to pursue.

Finding the right match

As with regular dating, it's incredibly important to connect with people who you actually have something in common with. Going on bad dates is not only a waste of your precious time, it is also very disheartening for singles who are searching for that special someone. EliteSingles matches potential partners via our matchmaking algorithm, which takes note of relationship preferences and personality compatibility.

Know what you are looking for

Ask any parent and they will tell you that time is their most precious resource. So before you jump into Single Parent Dating, ask yourself what you are looking for in a partner. What characteristics must your new partner have? What are you willing to compromise on? And what are relationship deal-breakers? By knowing what you are looking for, you’ll save a lot of time during the dating process, and you’ll be able to spot a potential partner when you see one.

When to introduce the kids

When you meet someone special it’s normal that you would want to bring that person into your world as soon as possible. But when it comes to introducing a new partner to young children, it’s important that you don’t jump the gun; it’s often best to wait until you are fully sure that your partner seems committed to being a consistent part of your –and your children’s –lives before you introduce them.
