Where to meet new people: Tips for single mother

Moms become starved for adult company and interaction if deprived of it. Single moms’ children often take up all their time and leave them little time in which to meet other adults. Whether you’re looking for a partner or just want to make new friends, there’s no reason why single moms can’t start a new relationship or form a circle of friends.

  1. Meet someone at gym: If you’re planning to again take on the world of first dates and the uncertainty of whether he will phone, you have to look your best. If you make the time to exercise you’ll have the confidence to meet people and perhaps also make a friend or two. Be on the lookout for those who regularly attend the same classes as you in the gym.

  1. Time in the park: You can spend quality time with your children in the park and even get to know their friends’ parents if they’re there too.

  1. Click for new love: Internet romances and websites for singles may seem a challenge but they can be particularly effective and safe, provided you follow the guidelines. Set up a profile and be honest and clear about your expectations, interests and personality, but you should know what information to keep to yourself.

  1. Share your interests: “Clubs and groups are probably the best places to meet people,” says Estelle. She says they serve multiple purposes because you’re doing something for yourself by spending time on your hobby, and you can also meet someone.

  1. Speed dating: The biggest advantage of speed dating is that even the busiest mom can find time for a quick meeting with someone. Fortunately you spend only a short time in his company, so if he bores you it’s not the end of the world. But if you’re interested in him you can arrange a longer follow-up date.

However you choose to meet someone, remember that your and your children’s safety is paramount. And if you decide you’re happy without a man in your life, invite a few female friends over (let the children play together) and drink a toast to your decision.
