Sometimes it seems I’m swimming in a very shallow dating pool, but I haven’t given up and taken in fifty cats. So here’s the down-low on dating sites I’ve tried as a SWM (single working mother). And remember: You can do it at home, at night after the kids go to bed, in your pajamas if you want. You set it up through your Facebook account and set your preferences within minutes.You won’t waste time filling out large forms and questionnaires, and your pictures are right there on Facebook.Overall Websites allow you to upload more photos than apps, and you can narrow your search parameters. And be prepared to get hit up by creeps or people outside of your dating search terms. Will you have the same ease and time you had before you became Mommy?
I got a few decent dates from Ok Cupid with actual nice guys, but I also got a ton of messages from guys way too young for me looking for a MILF (barf), or who fake their profiles (adding kids) to scam me.
This feels like a waste of time when you match with someone only to find out that, bam!
You’ve got no desire to go out with this jobless fool.
Cons: A website is more difficult and takes more time than an app, hands down. You will get emailed by anyone and everyone though, whether they’re in your search parameters or not, so be prepared.
Also, unless you subscribe, it’s difficult to use for a trial period to see if you want to pay for their subscription.
