SingleParentMatch is a dating site for single parents looking for longterm relationships and serious dating. Niche sites like this make it easier for people who don’t feel like swiping thousands of times on Tinder to try to find someone likeminded to date.
It’s unclear how many members Single Parent Match has, as some report it as 30k and others as 2M. As part of the SuccessfulMatch network of sites, it’s a website that has a good reputation, however. The design might not be the most exciting, but there are great features on the site.
Overall it’s a great single parent dating site, particularly if you are uncomfortable using one of the bigger online dating sites.
The main features of this single parents dating site are:
- a profile where you can add basic information about yourself
- you can include questions for potential matches on your profile to help break the ice
- you can upload photos—they will be approved by members of staff
- instant messaging
- you can send winks
- you can write blogs on the site
- forums are available that you can join
- app available for iOS and Android (the latter is not on the Google Play store—you have to download a file)
- you can search for members using basic search criteria
- you can play a swipe game similar to Tinder where you swipe yes or no on people generated by the app
Note that as a standard (free) member, you can reply to messages from premium members, but you cannot initiate a conversation unless you upgrade. You also cannot use the chat function and you’ll show up further down on search results than premium members.
Ease of Use
Single Parent Match is very easy to use. You are prompted to fill out your profile and from there it’s pretty self-evident how to search for matches and initiate contact—whether through messaging or likes.
You can email them—they are available seven days a week, 24 hrs a day. After some digging you’ll also find a phone number in the FAQ section (FYI it’s 1-416-628-1072 in case you don’t want to spend time trying to find their digits!).
The Bottom Line
Single Parent Match is a trusted online dating site for single parents. It’s a great place for parents looking for love with someone else who also has children. It will save time digging through the members on places like Match and Bumble where you may have to search for a while to find other single parents.
The downside is that the site/app doesn’t have anywhere near as many members as the bigger dating sites. It’s easy to use the site/app, but it could do with a face lift looks wise.
Is SingleParentMatch a scam?
No, it’s a site that’s been around for a while and all profile photos are reviewed before being approved. However, that does not stop scammers from using the site, so if you receive strange messages, alert customer support and they’ll deal with it.
Is SingleParentMatch good for hookups and casual dating?
No. It’s a site for single parents looking for love and long term relationships.
Is SingleParentMatch safe?
It’s as safe as most dating sites—profiles are monitored by staff, but from time to time people will pretend to be who they are not. Adhere to regular online dating safety and immediately report any suspicious member to staff so they can investigate and/or delete the account.
How many members does SingleParentMatch have?
There are 2M members in the community, but this may refer to the combined amount of members of the sites the parent company, Successful Match, operates. Therefore, it’s unclear exactly how many members the site has.
Do only single parents use SingleParentMatch?
The idea behind the site is that you need to be a single parent to sign up, though that may not stop someone without children to sign up as they’re up for dating someone who already has children.
