Of course, not every parent chooses to out themselves as such. But those who do can go about it in one of three ways: include it in your text, include it in your photos, or do both.
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)!
Are you a single parent in the US looking to find a loving partner?
You’re certainly not alone - the recent census found that New York City is home to just over 720,000 single-parent families by itself – so there are plenty of other single parents out there looking for love!
But I wondered if finding those connections is as easy for women with children as it is for those without.

The most frustrating aspect about Tinder: Once you swipe left, the man is gone for life unless you purchase an upgrade with the ability to take back your “swiping decision.” Plus, this site seems to be loaded with men who are simply collecting matches and “liking” you because they’re bored and need something to look at. ) In short, Tinder is known to be a hook-up app, so you’ll have to hunt hard to strike gold. —there you are, pretty as a picture in your new profile.In 2007, I met my husband on a little website called My Space.(You may have heard of it.) One evening, I was cruising the site for dates, entering all the criteria that mattered to me — height, education, facial hair — when a picture of the man who would one day be the father of my children blowing a noise maker with his nose was so captivating that I knew I had to have him.When you’re a single parent in the US, things just aren’t as simple as they were before children – especially when it comes to dating.
