LONDON(RPRN7/16/2009 –– MumsDateDads, a new upbeat and light hearting single parent dating site, has offered its expert advice to single parents on how to find themselves a new partner. Here are the top 5 tips that MumsDateDads has for its users:
1. Get rid of those guilty feelings
Single parents re-entering the dating scene may start to feel guilty about going out to look for a partner or another single parent for dating. This is perfectly normal but not at all necessary; dating for parents need not be a burden on the mind.
2. Explaining it to Your Kids
When you are going out on a date, let your kids know that youâ€™re going out with a friend. Itâ€™s a simple, honest explanation. Especially with younger kids, no more details are needed â€“ keeping things simple is better for them.
3. Ask the Right Questions
Do ask lots of questions and be straight up about having children. Never pretend you don’t have children just so that you can get a date.
4. Introduce Your New Friend Slowly
Once youâ€™re ready to introduce your partner to your children, do so slowly. If they are bought in too quickly, youâ€™re children may begin to feel threatened â€“ let them know that they come first.
5. Enjoy Yourself
You may have had difficult times in the past but thatâ€™s where it needs to be left. Enjoy yourself, let your hair down and move forward. Think about the future, and how the things that are going to make you happier now may make you happier overall later in life.
