Before you start on the exciting journey of Single Parent Dating, it’s a great idea to ask yourself what you really want in a partner.

I have a wonderfully supportive family; without them I would probably be lost.

They have always been there to help me with babysitting.

Before you do so, though, it’s important that you take your time and make sure you’ve gauged a real and lasting commitment from them to you and your relationship.

After all, children need to know that an addition to the family is a positive bonus, and not someone that will rock the stability of family life.

Single parents have to worry about who's going to watch their child in the mornings and get them off to school and watch them after school.

They don't have the luxury of having another mate to help him with schedules.

I had to struggle to find friends to watch him before and after school because of my non-flexible work schedule. You can't just pick up and go out to dinner whenever you feel like it.

You need to plan so you can get a babysitter and you don't want to get a babysitter all the time.

Sometimes men without children just don't understand that.
