Dating with Children in the Picture: Time to Date?

It’s hard enough to find time to date when you are single and have just you to take care of. Those who are single parents and divorced have a whole other set of issues. As a single parent to set aside time for dating takes focus and determination.

I have seen many divorced and widowed parents decide to wait until their kids go off to college before they are willing to put themselves out there to date and look for a serious relationship. They have the demands of work and their kids to consider first. I know several single moms by choice (with no ex spouse) that are really time starved! In most instances there is no more to give beyond work and family.

However, there are those single parents who do make it a priority and have found love.

Especially the divorced single parents have some time to go out and meet people when their ex (if they ex is in the picture) is taking care of the kids. One of my single dad friends dropped his daughter at his parent’s house so he could go out and socialize.

Another one of my clients chose to look online for love since he could do it in the evenings when the kids were asleep. Then he could arrange to meet the women during his lunch hour or on his “off” weekend.

As a single parent what time have you set aside to go out and meet people to date? What are the big things do you have to take into consideration in order to date?
