As a Single Parent Finding Time For You is Half The Battle
Dating someone who shares common values and goals is so important when dating on the Internet. For many single parents in Australia, coming back to the dating environment is a tough decision. Single parents face the challenge of finding the time to develop social opportunities not to mention the daunting possibility of introducing your new partner to your children. Free dating Australia for single parents has created a specific category on our online dating website where single parents from Australia can easily connect with our unique matchmaking tools. Our online dating website is 100% free and we have new single parents just like you joining us everyday. Get Started Here .
Currently in Australia, single parents account for more than 15% of families. Out of these, 66% live with their dependants. 85% of single parent households are single mums.
So as far as the dating scene is concerned for single parents, it spells great news for single dads given there is a huge over-supply of single mums compared to single dads. This scenario contrasts the overall male to female ratio in the mainstream online dating mix whereby men outnumber the women.
Common problems single parents face when searching for a romantic relationship is finding someone who is prepared to except you, warts and all! We sometimes hear stories from our single parent members here at Free Dating Australia who write to us complaining that they are reluctant to tell someone they just met offline that they have kids.
For a majority of single people, learning that someone you just met has kids is a deal breaker. And we can't really hold that against someone who isn't ready for that kind of a relationship. Taking on an instant family is a huge choice that has consequences.
Signing up to an online dating website gives single mums and dads the chance to lay their cards on the table without worrying about their date running a mile. You can be as upfront as you like. Within the sign up process of this website you'll have the chance to join the single parent category in addition to the main dating group. So your profile page will be available for other single parents to browse.
One of the biggest issues faced by single parents is having a solid family support group on hand. Making time for 'you' is essential and a key element for you to be a successful and happy single parent. If you don't have the luxury of family support, their are various family support services available (http://www.frsa.org.au/our-purpose) that can help.
Free Dating Australia is a great way for single parents to connect. Below are some first date ideas to inspire your online dating efforts. As always, we'd love to hear about your online dating experiences, so please let us know.
Kid-Friendly Dating Tips
Hunt down your date and your kid at the same time at skirmish. It's a cool and fun way for you, your date and your kids to hang out and mess about at the same time. After the game, your kids will have burnt all their energy and go to bed early while you and your date can nurse each others bruises and patch each other up - sponge bath anyone?
Bowling is yet another classic way to bring families together as opposed to awkward dinners to introduce your new guy or girl to the family. Bowling is also an inexpensive night out in a relaxing environment.
With this date idea, if you're smart about it, you'll let the kids choose the movie so they are occupied. You then get the chance to snuggle up with your new friend in a darkened theatre. Seeing a movie with your date and the kids also gives everyone the chance to talk about something in common afterwards.
4. Putt Putt Golf
Putt Putt Golf is an awesome chance to wander around the golf course laughing, chatting and flirting whilst having some lighthearted competitive fun with your date. Putt Putt Golf centres often have games and arcade areas so you can give the kids a few bucks and let them go and amuse themselves allowing you and your date to spend some kid-free alone time.
