Results from a recent study by Match.com showed that single parents in the US are dating more (21%) compared to singles without children (16%). The study also looked at how these singles felt about issues such as the appropriate amount of time to wait before introducing children to your new partner and how to tell a child about a new romance. Specific results include:

  • Single Parents are dating more than singles without kids: 21% of single parents are currently dating someone versus 16% of singles without kids; 35% of single parents have been on a first date in the past year versus 27% of singles without kids
  • How/When are single parents introducing kids into the mix: 25% of singles would wait 2-3 months before introducing the person they're dating to their kids; When the time comes to introduce their partner to their children, 58% of singles said they would first invite their children and date to an activity outside of the house

The study was commissioned by Match.com to better understand the behaviors and interests of modern day American singles.  An independent group of 5,200 US singles were polled for this study which was designed by the world-renowned biological anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher and underwritten by Binghamton University.  Additional results and tips to celebrate the single mom are available at http://blog.match.com/single-moms/
