As a single parent, we know you’re probably reading this while trying to multitask a million different things, so we’ll get straight to the point.
Single Parent Meet has over 250,000 visitors per month, ranging from age 18 up to and over 55.
As you can tell from the name, the site focuses on matching single parents with partners who are looking for long-term relationships. Because the site caters to people with kids, members looking for love know exactly what they’re getting themselves into. This means that you and your potential partner are both on the same page.
Properly completing the sign-up process is a key factor in finding the perfect partner. After all, this is basically the first impression that you’ll be making to other members on the site.
The sign-up process is quite simple. However, some questions such as “what are you looking for in a partner” don’t require an answer, which could be a bit annoying when looking for a match. In addition to the usual personal questions, there’s also a multiple-choice personality questionnaire.
What’s great about Single Parent Meet is that you’re able to upload an audio and a video greeting.
It is important to note that even though this site has an aim to cater to single parents, you will get people who are hoping to prey on this seemingly vulnerable market and who have no intention of starting a long-term relationship.
There are members as young as 18 and those who 55 years and older. The site caters to all ethnicities and most sexual orientations.
Education levels range from high school educated to university educated. So, it basically has a wide variety of members.
Creating and uploading your profile is free. However, you’ll have to take out a subscription when you want to start communicating with any potential matches. It’s important to note that this subscription will be automatically renewed until you cancel it.
The main way to find a potential partner is by searching for one on the site. You can find potential members based on filtered personality traits and by using keywords.
Another great feature is that you can search members who are currently online. That’s especially helpful if the kids are sleeping or at school and you’ve got some time to yourself.
Speaking of kids, going out on dates can be a bit tricky is you can’t find a babysitter. Single Parent Meet can help you out with this by linking you to care.com where you can search for qualified babysitters in your area.
Because free time is so rare for single parents, you can browse potential matches and save them to your favorites to contact later.
The sign-up process is not that comprehensive, whatever matches are made may not be as successful as on other sites.
Also, because anyone can join, you may find yourself dealing with members who are not as serious about a connection as you are.
It’s important to have a look at the terms and conditions when signing up. When you create a profile on Single Parent Meet, you automatically get one on all of the dating sites that the company owns, even though you haven’t signed up for them.
Also, your profile may still be visible on the site even when you decide to stop using it.
They do however promise not to share your email address with any third party.
You can block members that you don’t want to communicate with, and you can report inappropriate behavior to the site’s support staff. Single Parent Meet also has offers some helpful safety tips when meeting members in real life.
Even though there are certain processes in place, basically anyone can join the site, even people with bad intentions. This is why members should be careful, as with anything online, when meeting anyone or exchanging personal information.
Customers can contact customer care by phone, Monday through Friday 8 am to 5 pm CST. But, as a single parent, Single Parents Meet know you don’t always have time to make a call to get an answer to your questions, therefore their site has an informative FAQs section and their support staff are available via email.
