When a single parent faces the prospect of dating, it can be quite daunting. Meeting someone new is tough to begin with, now add in children and it can become overwhelming. It is not just the couple coming together, but families. However, navigating the challenges can be successfully done with a little perspective and planning.
The team of matchmakers has helped many parents find new romantic relationships. Timing is key. Knowing when you are ready to date is one stage. Disclosing this to your children and later introducing someone new to your children is also something that needs to be carefully timed. You do not want to move too fast, nor keep things a secret from your loved ones. As always, good communication is usually the best way to handle these issues. Being open with your new partner about how to proceed is helpful. If your children are older, including them in the discussion can be an eye opener too. Many parents are surprised and relieved when their children tell them that they want to be happy and find a new love!
