After just a few searches, I deleted my account, having found the dating pool there to be unbelievably shallow. e Harmony The quick & dirty: EHarmony worked well for a few of my friends—but none of them were single parents.If you live in a city, chances are you’ll find people nearby to connect with; if you live in the suburbs, prepare for matches fifty miles away. They do a nice job with their psychological tests, bound to introduce you to better matches, but the process is long and it costs.From search alone you only know age and distance, and then it’s up to the men to fill in the blanks briefly with some profile description. This leaves you wondering things like: • How tall is he? (My experience with Tinder was that men could waste your precious single-mom minutes messaging you back and forth.) Bumble’s biggest plus: You can “take back” a negative, left swipe for free (unlike Tinder)!So if I make a mistake or want a second look at someone, I can backtrack and revisit a potential match.You won’t waste time filling out large forms and questionnaires, and your pictures are right there on Facebook.(Caveat: Don’t use photos of you with your kids or of them alone, for their safety.Overall, I recommend avoiding this site unless you have time to set up the profile, want to pay for the features and don’t mind meeting people halfway across your state. ) and works like other web dating sites—you use specific search parameter’s to filter through matches, which makes your hunt easier.The general profile page is easy to fill out, but there are a billion different questions you can expand on to determine if you’re a match or someone’s “enemy.” A lot of the questions can be good, but fair warning: Some here are racy.

It was easy to upload photos off my computer, and I was up and running in minutes.
You can narrow your search to weed out certain things you don’t want. It’s possible your location will be different from my location, but the majority of men with profiles were older than 55 or had “questionable” single parent statuses.
You never know.) Searching for matches is super simple.
Once you’ve set age and distance preferences, you start swiping.
