So if I make a mistake or want a second look at someone, I can backtrack and revisit a potential match.
Cons: Like on Tinder, you’re searching men knowing very little about them.
Overall Websites allow you to upload more photos than apps, and you can narrow your search parameters. And be prepared to get hit up by creeps or people outside of your dating search terms. Will you have the same ease and time you had before you became Mommy?
Also, unless you subscribe, it’s difficult to use for a trial period to see if you want to pay for their subscription.
Phone apps are quick to install and use but often come with glitches. Additionally, because men tend to simply look at the photos without reading the profile blurb, some were caught off-guard and turned off when they discovered I was a mom. Additional apps to try: • Hinge • JSwipe (the newest Jewish dating app) Match Pros: Match is obviously well-known, so chances are there will be a fair selection of guys (though I can’t promise they’ll be great).
Match lets you narrow your search terms, including whether your date has kids and his income range, which helps you filter.
You can narrow your search to weed out certain things you don’t want. It’s possible your location will be different from my location, but the majority of men with profiles were older than 55 or had “questionable” single parent statuses.
I wouldn’t be surprised if some were never single parents and simply thought a single mom might be “easy prey.” As for the 55 year old, his children are most likely long gone from his home.
