Online dating services have been exploding in popularity all over the world, but until now, safe and rewarding internet options for serious single adults who also happen to be single parents have been very limited.
Thanks to SingleMummy.com (http://www.singlemummy.com), a worldwide site based in the United Kingdom, that's all changing. SingleMummy.com uses the latest high-tech search tools to allow single parents to find romance while keeping the focus on their first priority--their children.
Founder Andrea Carless first learned about the need for such a site in 2004, when she found herself newly single with two children to raise. "I joined a couple of online dating sites to meet that special someone, but those sites were very general, so I started my own," Carless said. "I wanted to create a site dedicated to single parents seeking love and romance. My goal was to give my members lots of options to meet other single parents who can relate to their experiences and provide parents whose children are the most important part of their lives with a high quality dating service."
SingleMummy.com offers members a wide range of ways to find their ideal match, including using video, photos and voice along with matching based on personal interests, Zodiac signs and even sexual energy. Members get to build their profile in dozens of categories, with hundreds of different options to choose from. They also can choose among many different ways of communicating with their online friends, including instant messaging, mobile messaging, mailboxes and inexpensive telephone service.
Because of the special needs and interests of single parents, Carless made it a point to build into the website and its services. SingleMummy.com members can maintain anonymity even as they communicate with others, and they can block other members and maintain control over who sees their profiles. There's even a section devoted to psychological advice for members who have faced family, relationship, personality or sexuality crises. A strong emphasis on children is evident as well. One section in the area where members list their personal information and preferences is devoted entirely to general information about their children.
All of which is making SingleMummy.com successful in the crowded internet dating. Carless noted that just recently, two members got married and another couple that met on the site are now engaged. "We're extremely proud of our successes for single parents," Carless said. "It's a wonderful way for singles with children to find soul mates with the same priorities."
SingleMummy.com, which adheres to the U.K Data Protection Act of 1988, combines accurate searching, interactive matching, and a safe community environment so members have a safe and fun place to meet other single parents.
