Discover single parents looking for meaningful relationships online on Guardian Soulmates.

If you are new to online dating or want to find out more about the online dating scene for single parents, then check out the Soulmates Blog for great tips and advice.

Cons: Since you’re limited with your search parameters, you may sift through a lot of matches just to find one decent guy. Bumble Pros: What makes it unique is women have to pitch the first message. While there have been one or two saucy gentlemen I’ve come across, for the most part the men have wanted to go on dates pretty quickly.

From search alone you only know age and distance, and then it’s up to the men to fill in the blanks briefly with some profile description. This leaves you wondering things like: • How tall is he? (My experience with Tinder was that men could waste your precious single-mom minutes messaging you back and forth.) Bumble’s biggest plus: You can “take back” a negative, left swipe for free (unlike Tinder)!

Cons: A website is more difficult and takes more time than an app, hands down. You will get emailed by anyone and everyone though, whether they’re in your search parameters or not, so be prepared.

Also, unless you subscribe, it’s difficult to use for a trial period to see if you want to pay for their subscription.

I know, I know, the logistics of dating as a solo parent who’s working to provide for her family can get tough.

I’m right there in the trenches online at single parents' dating sites and on apps, looking for love and, mostly, looking to stay out of trouble.

This feels like a waste of time when you match with someone only to find out that, bam!

You’ve got no desire to go out with this jobless fool.

Phone apps are quick to install and use but often come with glitches. Additionally, because men tend to simply look at the photos without reading the profile blurb, some were caught off-guard and turned off when they discovered I was a mom. Additional apps to try: • Hinge • JSwipe (the newest Jewish dating app) Match Pros: Match is obviously well-known, so chances are there will be a fair selection of guys (though I can’t promise they’ll be great).
