The Single Mom's Guide to Finding New Love
Where To Meet Prospective Partners
Now that you're a mother, you might feel uncomfortable with the bar scene and other hangouts that cater mainly to the young and childfree crowd.
You might want to consider some family-friendly spots to meet and chat with single men. While you by no means have to date men who are single dads, it may help to have this major factor in common.
Places like the park, the kid corner of the library, and other kid-friendly environments all provide opportunities for running into a single dad. Unfortunately, moms (single or otherwise) far outnumber single dads at any of these locations. Still, it doesn't hurt to give it a try and see who you meet.
Friends and family can be helpful in your search for a mate. Most people know at least a few guys who are single or divorced. Let your friends and family know you're looking and they'll probably be glad to help.
Some people shy away from fix-ups like this because of the possible drama that could result if it doesn't work out, but others find that the extra support of having friends in common helps to get the relationship going in the right direction, whether it turns to romance or stays platonic.
