    single parents & dating

    thought would see what the view on this was as I'm finding it a nightmare, any other single parents on hear and how hard do/did you find it to get back in to dating. single now for best part off five years can never get out in the eve so only people really meet are parents at school which is little village so most attached or to close to home if things don't work..tried loads of dating sites but just doesn't seem to work all miles away or little man scares them off lol. any friendly advice you can all give would be great..thanks.

    lol couldn't afford them if i wanted to..

    take ur pick then

    its not easy being a single parent and getting into dating, i have 3 and i think esp on the net this puts people off :-( my only hope is meeting someone in the flesh and them liking me first ( tough ask there!) = then not minding my baggage

    - then theres the other side, my kids are the most important factor and when thinking bout dating i have to put them first and introducing new 'friends' is a big step for me

    good luck though

    I have been single for a year or too now, and to be honest i am not interested in being with anybody, my kids come first and at the moment any free time i have away from them i enjoy doing my own thing, i dont get much spare time in the evening as by the time the house comes to a still i cant be bothered to do anything let alone entertain someone else

    exactly,putting kids first is the right thing to do and every decent parent would , just remember we as people need to be happy too, so if its what you want keep looking, if its meant to be you will find the perfect partner :-D

    and don't get drunk before you go it does NOT help

    Dude, forget about finding the love of your life, go and visit the local bike, every village has a female that isn't fussy.

    Or save up your child benefit, go to a big city and visit a massage parlour.

    It's no longer the 90's, sensitive man is out.
