Cupid’s Advice:

After taking a hiatus from the game, you might need a refresher course…especially if you’re a single parent. Never fear! Cupid’s Pulse has compiled a few tips on some of the best practices for dating as a single parent. Check them out below!

1. Ease into it: Especially if you’re newly divorced, take this time to really focus on your kids and their feelings. Make sure that when you’re ready to date again, you talk to your kids about it and are without a doubt convinced that this is the next step in your life.

2. Be honest: If your date doesn’t know that you’re a single parent before your first meeting, you should let them know your situation right away! Your kids come first, and it’s obviously important that you’re dating someone who knows that you have children and isn’t thrown off by it.

3. Avoid multiple introductions: Children can easily get attached to a new ‘friend’ of mom or dad’s. So, be careful with how many different partners you’re bringing home and how often. If people keep disappearing on them, kids may become pessimistic about romantic relationships.
