You’re single, you’re a mom, you have a job—and you want to date. Me too. So before you tell me it’s impossible, I offer you this: Anything is possible! I know, I know, the logistics of dating as a solo parent who’s working to provide for her family can get tough. I’m right there in the trenches online at single parents' dating sites and on apps, looking for love and, mostly, looking to stay out of trouble. Sometimes it seems I’m swimming in a very shallow dating pool, but I haven’t given up and taken in fifty cats. Yet.
Happn This one is very new, competes with Tinder and focuses on GPS tracking to connect you with people who you have crossed paths with IRL, showing you a map of where you have been in the same coffee shop, bar, grocery store or AYSO soccer field.
Additional sites to try:
• PlentyOfFish (tremendous hit or miss with this site)

HowAboutWe This is a cute site, where users fill out basic profiles, upload a few pics, then suggest a date. “Let’s get to know each other at a wine bar, then stroll around the village,” or “Take a salsa dancing class together!” or “Watch the Yankees while eating wings and a microbrew.” The upside is that you have a very excellent chance of a fun date, even if you don’t hit love paydirt.
PositiveSingles is the leading online dating site for singles who have tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease. Along with its dating component, PositiveSingles is an active support group and educational resource for its members.
Focusing on a narrow pool of candidates, these online dating sites help match people up with someone of a similar religion, profession, or sexual orientation. Examples within this category include Jdate for Jewish singles, Geek7Geek and Farmersonly for farmers and the people who want to meet them.
Websites allow you to upload more photos than apps, and you can narrow your search parameters. But they usually take more time to set up. And be prepared to get hit up by creeps or people outside of your dating search terms.
These dating sites are geared towards people looking to meet up with someone for drinks as friends, or more spur-of-the-moment dates. Some of these sites include HowAboutWe, Tinder and Badoo.
