Online dating for moms

You don't have to do it alone, you know? And just because you're a parent, that doesn't mean your social life has to go away. In fact, there are many dating sites that have sprouted up in recent years geared towards parents like you who are looking for other single parents or singles who wouldn't mind dating someone with children.

Here's our review of four popular dating sites out there that are just for single parents. Which one is right for you and who made the grade? Read on...

SingleParentsMingle.com

The 411

You can browse this dating site for free and there's no cost to initiate contact on this site specifically geared for single parents. This site, which has been around since 2002, is $6.99 to $9.99 per month (depending on the membership). Success stories are also featured on the site -- it's quite motivating. No more discouraged dating feelings here!

What you'll find

Making a profile on this site is very easy. It's a quick-moving step-by-step process. Once you've filled it out -- it should only take 15 minutes or so -- you can see who's online, and chat with them on the spot using the site's functionalities. There are also forums and chat rooms to meet potential dates.

For the great value and simple profile process, this site gets an A-.

SingleParentLove.com

The 411

There are more than 10 million customers to access through this site geared towards single parents. Services include chat, e-mailing, instant messaging and video! It's $8.33 to $24.99 to upgrade your account (depending on the membership), which allows you better access and more functionalities.

What you'll find

Although the profile is more cumbersome than SingleParentsMingle.com, it only refines those who search for you more -- which may result in better matches.

For the video functionality, this site gets a B+.

SingleMomsAndDads.com

The 411

This site geared towards single parents will set you back $13.33 to $29.95 per month (depending on membership). It is free to sign up to browse just like most sites, but extra access gives you better features -- such as more direct contact.

What you'll find

Filling out your profile is really cumbersome on this site -- it's broken out into over seven pages of steps. That's too much work! However, we do like the search functionality on this site, and the display of photos is nice to look at.

Since we like the search functionality, this site gets a B-.

SingleParentsMatcher.com

The 411

This site brings you straight to filling out the form to sign on. It's a great business practice, I'm sure -- but once you see the profile, you may not want to fill it out. It's a lot to answer and not presented to the user in the best way. As for the cost, we don't really know how much it is -- it's too time-consuming to fill out the profile that we never even got far enough to be told what it would cost to upgrade our free membership.

What you'll find

The cool thing is you can browse who's online without signing in. Maybe that will entice you to fill out the form? We like the search page on this site, for sure.

Dating grade

The site is good for those who are willing to put in the time. It does have a good search results page, so we give it a C.
