PostHeaderIcon Match Aims To Help More Single Parents Find Love This Fall #SingleParentLove

Online dating… I have some very mixed feelings about this. I met my ex-husband online in 2001, when it wasn’t all that common, and clearly that didn’t turn out well. However, I also know that one of my best friends met her husband on a dating site, today they are together 7 years and expecting their second daughter any day now!

Did you know Single Parents who have dated online have dated more people in the last 3 months than Single Parents who haven’t dated online (79% have dated 1 or more person in the last three months vs. 75% of single parents who don’t online date). I think most single parents would agree that it is difficult to find time to date or get to know someone. I know in the past, for me, it was difficult. One because being a single parent is time consuming and also because I do not bring guys around the boys ever. Now I don’t mean male friends, I mean guys I might be interested in.

PostHeaderIcon Match.com Studies Singles in America

What do 107 million Americans all have in common with each other?  They are single! For the third year in a row, Match.com has worked to understand these singles. Match.com recently put out their annual Singles in America study and I was really interested in reading the results. If you missed their Live Chat, you can still watch it on YouTube! They surveyed over 5,000 single men and women (as well as over 1,000 married couples), asking them some 200+ questions.

It seems to me like the number of single people in this country is going up at a rapid rate. The importance of marriage just isn’t the way it was many years ago. When people said the words, “Until Death Do Us Part” the truly meant it and stood by that. The other thing that seems to be going up is meeting people online. I will be the first to admit that I met my ex-husband online but, it was MANY years ago when it was not all that common. Notice I said ex? If you don’t do it right, the rate of success is pretty low in my opinion. He is a good person but we just were not meant for each other. It is almost impossible to truly know someone online. read the rest of this entry »
