......where do you go or how do you meet single women? I have tried Internet dating and it's not for me....I just wondered what how you single dads meet new people.....????

What about a single parents group?
My friend used to belong to one called gingerbread where she lived. She really enjoyed it and made some good friends too.

I work full time and have 3 kids who have a better social life than me....so spare time is every other weekend when their at their dads! I was just wondering if the single dads find it easier to meet new people than single women (not only for friendship but for dating too) x

I wish I knew. Between work and looking after the kids I barely have time to blow my nose let alone go dating.

Meet single women? Buggered if I know how you do that... when you find out where these rare creatures congregate, let me know.

I'm not single or a dad, but saw this on active convos. Could you join any interest groups, what are your passions?

Eclecticshock - I don't have any passions as such....unfortunately :-(

I've no idea.

Me personally as a single Dad ( NRP ) I really struggle with the idea of finding a new partner as they'd likely either have children, or want them.

If I was with a woman who had kids, I'd hope I'd eventually love her children as my own, but then I'd feel too guilty about not spending the same amount of time with my own dd.

And I don't think I want to start another family so I wouldn't want to waste a woman who wants kids time iyswim.

A shame as I'm such a catch < preens > in my dreams

<< forever alone >>

Shall we all agree to meet somewhere then?
Us single mums have the same problem!!

MrGin - Single mums think exactly the same! I have 3 DC and don't want anymore - so I have to either find a man who has DC himself, or a man who definitely doesn't want DC - and these are few and far between sad I also would hate to be with a man who feels guilty for spending time with me and my children and not their own children. As you are the NRP, I don't feel that you should feel guilty about spending less time with your DD, I am sure she knows that, whether you have a partner or not (with or without children), that you are spending as much time with her as you possibly can.

OcopusSocktopuss - I think that's a great idea....maybe we could all start something in our local area smile

Lovemy3kids Thu 19-Jul-12 09:45:05
