More » The largest of the free dating sites, POF boasts an (estimated) 23 million unique members using the site every month.While owner Markus Frind has wiped the site of folks only looking for casual dating or an age-gap relationship, I've found this has only increased the incidence of folks lying about their age or intentions. 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. So here’s the down-low on dating sites I’ve tried as a SWM (single working mother). And remember: You can do it at home, at night after the kids go to bed, in your pajamas if you want. You set it up through your Facebook account and set your preferences within minutes.You won’t waste time filling out large forms and questionnaires, and your pictures are right there on Facebook., meaning more people visit these online dating sites on a monthly basis.
Yes/No; While it is free to use, POF offers premium services as part of their upgraded membership, such as seeing the date and time a user viewed your profile and allowing you to see whether a user read and/or deleted your message.Cons: Since you’re limited with your search parameters, you may sift through a lot of matches just to find one decent guy. Bumble Pros: What makes it unique is women have to pitch the first message. While there have been one or two saucy gentlemen I’ve come across, for the most part the men have wanted to go on dates pretty quickly.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)!More » With just over seven million unique monthly users, e Harmony is the largest dating site focused exclusively on heterosexual, long-term partnerships that (hopefully) lead to marriage.Their free hour-long test is fascinating to help you determine compatibility markers, however, there's zero way to tell if the person you're matched with also has an account, and therefore can reply to your questions.
