Dating agencies for parents

Unbeknown to Jenny, justsingle is run by a parent company called Global Personals — a legitimate company most members never will have heard of, but which passes members’ details freely between the 7,500 sites it owns, meaning they are inundated with unwanted and inappropriate advances.

The company has also created ‘fake’ profiles, by lifting photographs off the internet, and ordering staff to flirt with unsuspecting members, outrageously flattering them into renewing their subscriptions.

Through the exchange of ideas and companionship, we hope to further our common welfare and the well being of our children.

Parents Without Partners provides single parents and their children with an opportunity for enhancing personal growth, self-confidence and sensitivity towards others by offering an environment for support, friendship and the exchange of parenting techniques.

In the first of Sophie Gillard’s series of blogs she writes about the realities of single parenthood and getting back into the ‘dating scene’. Here he tells the story of how Gingerbread's forums helped him find love again.

Consider this - one in eight families are parented by single moms, 10% of children live in stepfamilies and lone-parent families account for 14% of Canadian familial households.

In other words, if you are a single parent, you’re far from alone – there are thousands in the same boat, many of whom are looking for a committed relationship with a partner who understands their situation.

Whether you're a single dad or a single mom, dating and parenting both make demands on your time.

Happily, the advent of online dating means that it's easier than ever to find fellow singles who understand your lifestyle.

It’s really no wonder so many single parents decide to register with sites like Elite Singles in order to meet a suitable partner.
