Dating for parents

What is Dating for Parents?

Parents need to date too you know, so when I reviewed this website I was pleased to see that it was so effective. Their slogan is “You're there for family, we're there for you” or something like that, and this is actually true. The site is dedicated to making life easier for parents who don't get time to organise their own love life and enjoy life.

How does it work?

This is a free sign up dating site that allows you to look at some profiles etc. However, you can't get in touch with anyone or use any of the other facilities onsite unless you sign up for the whole package, so to speak. Now you might think that this is a bad comment, but that all depends on how you look at it. Every single dating site seems to be like this these days so it's simply a case of how much you value the site you're thinking of joining really isn't it?

In this case Dating for Parents is almost certainly worthwhile joining, but only if you're a parent. I say this with some seriousness too, because there are those out there who will join this website and expect to get hold of a single person. The majority of people on this site are only single in the respect that they don't have another adult to share their life and experiences with, they are certainly not alone; this website recognises the importance of the children and that's why if you think you're going to get someone on their own you're not!

How is it populated?

The website tries it's hardest to populate with only parents, and they do quite well; clearly outnumbering those looking for a quick thrill or a “laugh”. The people are very nice and polite and when you're a member you can actually get to message them and even talk on webcam if you like. What is important to note is that when joined this site I expected there to be loads of women online but no men, simply because men didn't class themselves as parents if they were separated from their partner; but I was surprised to find so many men on there too; this really does turn it into a lively, active member's site.

How much is it?

It's a pretty cheap site really, only costing around £20 a month if you choose that option. There are a load of different payment plans you can choose from and a variety of payment methods too. It's good value if you're going to use it.

Overall comments

If you're a parent and you've come to the conclusion that you're probably only ever going to meet other parents for dates and fun then this is the site for you. There are plenty of people out there, but no-one knows you like another parent does.
