Parents-Dating.com provides a platform for single parents to meet online. It allows you to perform detailed searches, receive notifications, write journal entries and more. Whilst its features are very similar to a number of other websites in this category, it is cheaper than several of those sites.
As you’ll see if you’ve read a few of our reviews in this category, a few of the websites we've reviewed share a number of similarities with other single parent dating websites. This is true of Parents-Dating, although we were a little more impressed with this site than some of its peers. Primarily, the site does a better job at telling you about its features, including offering all free members the option to send a first message for free.
Full membership allows you unlimited contact with other paying members, and, whilst it’s still not cheap, Parents Dating offers better value for money than some sites. The longer your contract, the better the saving, and you can also receive free notifications. These help you to keep up to date when new members join the website, or you can opt to receive messages when a compatible member joins the site. This saves you time as it means you won’t need to keep logging in to check on the latest members; rather you can sit back, relax and find out when potential matches join the site.
As with the other sites we’ve mentioned, ParentsDating includes an “Encounters” feature. This is a bit like a “yes” or “no” game where you pick whether or not you like the look of someone. If you choose “yes” and they like you too, the system will connect you both, and you can then chat and see how things progress.
Search parameters offer enough options to make sure that your results are specific to the sort of person you’re looking for. You can also check on members who have journals, to get regular updates on what’s happening in their life. If you like certain members then it’s easy to add them to a favourites list, and you can even find out which members have been looking at your profile page.
Profiles offer plenty of information about each member, and you can find some high quality photos. If you get to know someone well enough, you can also request more photos. When you browse members, you can see their name, age, location (including how far from you they live) and the sort of relationship they’re looking for, all at a glance. This makes it quick and easy to filter through potential dates.
We were relatively pleased by the number of results gathered from our searches. We also like the fact that Parents-Dating provides information about staying safe online. Still, this could be further developed to include articles about dating, childcare and more, which are lacking.
Whilst this website might not have everything that everyone is looking for in a single parent dating website, it has enough to warrant a second look. Membership prices aren’t fantastic, but they’re an improvement on a number of websites which offers similar services and membership numbers.
