Results from a recent study by Match.com showed that single parents in the US are dating more (21%) compared to singles without children (16%). The study also looked at how these singles felt about issues such as the appropriate amount of time to wait before introducing children to your new partner and how to tell a child about a new romance. Specific results include:

  • Single Parents are dating more than singles without kids: 21% of single parents are currently dating someone versus 16% of singles without kids; 35% of single parents have been on a first date in the past year versus 27% of singles without kids
  • How/When are single parents introducing kids into the mix: 25% of singles would wait 2-3 months before introducing the person they’re dating to their kids; When the time comes to introduce their partner to their children, 58% of singles said they would first invite their children and date to an activity outside of the house

The study was commissioned by Match.com to better understand the behaviors and interests of modern day American singles.  An independent group of 5,200 US singles were polled for this study which was designed by the world-renowned biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher and underwritten by Binghamton University.  Additional results and tips to celebrate the single mom are available at http://blog.match.com/single-moms/

    That is actually pretty interesting that single parents are dating more than single without kids. I guess it would make sense the single parents more than likely spend more time at home so that would give them more opportunity to be online. Plus being a single parent is tough and it would be great to have a partner.

    Three of my closest and dearest friends are single parents and I know that even at the best of times they do life a little tough to say the least. The expectations that they carry with them are outstanding and I’m sure that most of us couldn’t even begin to understand how much of a struggle each day can be if you don’t have the right mindset and attitude.

    With that being said, I’m thrilled to see that 21% of single parents are currently dating someone! Good on you; guys AND girls. You deserve happiness just as much as anyone else!

    Matt.

    I’ve got three really close friends who are single parents and I know just how hard they have it sometimes. They deal with a lot of stress that most people can’t understand so I’m thrilled to see that over 20% of single parents are out there in the dating world. They deserve happiness! :)
