10 dating tips for newly single parents.
If the lack of energy, the fear of failure and the lack of free time seem to be major obstacles to a fulfilled love life, it is perfectly possible to meet someone…
It happened to many people, and surely Also in your immediate entourage, then why not you?
Here are some dating tips that should help you meet this very special person who will reconcile you with love…
It may be a cliché sentence but it is true…
You will be unable to be ready to meet a new person if your ex is still haunting your nights and days.
And it’s just not about being still in love.
Hatred, resentment and feelings of injustice prevent you from being well with yourself.
So: forgive, forget, avoid arguments… And you finally move on to something else!
2- Improve your look.
Stay on your own, but still try to be always presentable!
You never know when you will come across your soul mate.
At the convenience store, at the park, at the office, in a bank?
3- Do activities with your children.
Do not hesitate to go out as often as possible with your children: hiking, skiing, shows (there are many free shows), trips to the library or museum, etc…
And do not imagine that all the other parents around you live with someone… Almost 1/3 of parents are not, so you have all your chances!
4- Take time for yourself.
It’s easier said than done, but there’s always a way to go.
You could, for example, exchange babysitting evenings with other parents who are in the same situation as you.
Then, enjoy it to do an activity that you really like: dance classes, cooking classes, shows, or other things…
If you go alone, everyone will know that you are single, a single parent.
5- Try dating sites.
This method of encounter is not suitable for everyone, but trying can be interesting.
Many people found their soul mates on a website, even those who were reluctant to try it.
Maybe that’s your case?
Dating sites, mobile dating apps, you can take time to know people online right from your sofa.
6- Talk to your friends.
Friends of friends are not always “loosers” and it is quite possible that your neighbor or your office colleague knows someone who seems to suit you perfectly…
Without daring to talk about it! Without seeming to be desperate, you can slide a word in the conversation from time to time to let people know that you have nothing against a “blind-date”.
7- Accept all invitations.
Whether it’s a colleague’s Halloween party, an afternoon at the park, a kids party or an after work drink, try to be there.
Of course, last minute invitations will be a bit difficult to organize with children, but if you have a network of close relatives (family, friends, other single parents), it should still be possible to go out at least once or twice a month…
And it only takes one time to meet this very special person!
8- Don’t make things unnecessarily.
Well, someone “normal” has approached you unexpectedly…
Do not reject this person even before you have tried something or tried to know this new encounter.
Nobody is in love one minute before love happens! So anything is possible.
Do not tell yourself it will never work, that you have no chance, or that you do not have time.
Perhaps this person has made a great effort on his or her own shyness to talk to you.
Maybe it’s also someone who has children.
Maybe you have many things in common.
How will you know if you avoid any smile that seems a bit too enterprising?
9- Take the lead.
You have noticed someone who is single (with or without children).
You see that you do not leave her indifferent…
What stops you from taking the first step, to propose a date, a coffee, a show?
The worst that can happen is that the other person will say no, just like when you flirt with other people.
And it may not be a definitive no anyway.
Maybe the person was not free, but your motivation will encourage her to take another step soon!
10- Have confidence in yourself and do not be discouraged!
Just because you ended a relationship (or more than one) does not mean that you no longer deserve an intimate relationship with another human being.
It’s just that this person did not suit you.
See life on the right side, be happy, show your best smile…
And you will have someone attracted to you very quickly!
Take time to know this person, especially before introducing this person to your kids.
Give yourself a few months.
Then, you can move on and invest yourself in this new relationship.
