Parent Singles Near Me is an easy-use dating website for single parents. Many of its members are in the UK but the site also contains sections for members in the USA, Australia, Ireland and more. A new mobile app also allows you to check on your progress when you’re out, whilst chat features allow you to talk to other parents in real-time.
Signing up is very quick and you can easily skip sections you don’t wish to complete. You can then return to these at a later date if you wish to bulk up your profile page. Profiles generally have a decent amount of information on them, which includes a few vital statistics (helpful when it comes to performing a search), plus a little extra written information which allows members to describe their lives and who they’re hoping to meet.
If you like to make an impact and a good first impression, you may wish to upload a video introduction to your profile. This gives a personal feel to your profile page and allows members to get a good look (and listen) to you. In addition, you can also write diary entries which help you to express yourself, as well as providing details on your day to day life, romances and more.
Whilst browsing the site, you can see who has logged on whilst you’re online. This offers a great opportunity to say hello. A friends list is then available to keep a note of any members you particularly enjoyed talking to. If you’d like to see more of someone, then you can request additional photos from them using a quick request button.
A simple dating game, “Encounters” provides a fun way of browsing members. You are presented with a profile picture and simply click “yes”, “no” or “maybe”, depending on whether you would like to get to know that person. If they reciprocate with a positive answer about your profile picture, the system lets you both know so you can talk to each other. This is a low maintenance, low stress way of broadening your potential matches.
The site provides a mobile app so that you never have to miss a message or make someone wait for a reply. You can also find out which members have been looking at your profile if you wish to make the first move. As well as talking using an instant messenger, you can also send email-style messages if you prefer to take your time over writing a response. The site also allows full members to send gifts.
Our in depth searches provided a decent number of results, although it wasn’t always clear which members were paid and which were free. This could be critical since, if you only wish to contact non-paying members, then they may not be able to reply.
There are a few other single parent dating sites which are pretty similar to this one. However, they do not all make a point of having pages for different countries, and some of them do not really highlight the fact that they have a phone app (meaning other members may be unaware of its existence). Of the group, (which includes Net Mums Dating, Single With Kids and more), ParentSinglesNear.Me is one of the cheaper options, but it’s still quite expensive when compared with several of the other single parent websites on the internet.
