Let’s face it; dating is a whole new ballgame when the well-being of a child becomes a component of the equation. Single parenting is a crucial balancing act; this is especially true for single men. How much of your time are you allowed to set aside for just you, to piece together the remnants of what used to be a social life? How much of your social life is to become an element of your family life and how soon, especially if you are wishing them to mesh at some point in the future? These are very normal questions and situations that every single father faces when it is time to put your self back out there. It is a well proven fact that family happiness levels, including the kids’, increase when a single parent brings their ideal mate into the family. That’s a promising fact, but the greater inquisition at hand, is where do you even begin searching for such a person that will make an effortless addition to your kid friendly household? We all know that love interests are known for appearing at the oddest of times, in the strangest of places; however, when children are involved, the opportunities to make yourself available, to the type of woman you would invite into your family, become scarce. If you feel stuck in a routine where socializing outside of your daily circle of encounters seems impossible, you may find a few of these suggestions enlightening.
An evening stroll down the street to the neighborhood park after dinner, with your youngster and perhaps your dog, is a great way to break up your routine, take some time to breath in some fresh air and get a little exercise. This is a scene that attracts just the type of down to earth, kid-friendly woman a single father would find a lot in common with. She may either be at the park with her child, out for some evening exercise, or like you, seeking some peaceful fresh air. A park is a relaxed setting that can open up some quality opportunities to meet a wonderful, compatible woman.
Another great way to meet kid-friendly women in your city may be to partner up with you child and partake in some city recreational functions. Community centers typically have, very affordable, 4-6 week classes, like exercise or sport related classes, art classes, or maybe a foreign language. Depending on where you live, the opportunities to socialize with other single parents may reveal themselves through participating in community events. This could include even taking a Saturday afternoon to join your son or daughter at the local bounce house, jungle gym place where many single kid-friendly women are likely to be, either with their children or with a sister or close friend that has children (hint: women don’t like to go places like this alone). This is not a time to be shy; taking time out of your busy schedule to mingle among the community is critical to expanding a single father’s social life.
One last take away, that may draw some criticism, is online networking. Everyone has an opinion formed on the topic, however, one popular motto to consider in this event is ‘don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.’ There are some great happy ending, digital age love stories out there that resulted from an online connection; and the number of single individuals enrolled is astounding. Growing popularity usually symbolizes satisfaction in the consumer world right? Its a great way to meet women with uncanny similarities, the same types of hobbies, from a similar background that you never would have had the opportunity to come across in your daily life. It is possible that the woman just described lives in the neighborhood directly behind you. Think about how many lost opportunities exist due only to slight proximity.
Hopefully, some ideas have been triggered on where to look for kid-friendly women in your area. While you may be super single dad by day, do not forget that in order to take care of everyone else, you must begin by ensuring a full, healthy, happy life exists for you as well.
