The most important thing about single parent dating is that you only spend your precious time with people who could actually be potential partners.

Thanks to our unique Relationship Questionnaire, e Harmony ensures that you’ll be matched with single Mums or Dads who share more than just your experience of being a parent; our matches are based on 29 dimensions of compatibility, so you’ll be one-step closer to finding someone you – and your kids – will really click with.

At e Harmony, we know that dating as a single parent can be a challenge; that’s why we really take time getting to know you and finding out what you’re looking for in a partner.

To do both successfully requires a balancing act - one that is made easier to juggle when you can connect with others who have similar relationships and lifestyles.

After all, your time is precious and, if you are going to balance work and family demands with dating, you want the people you meet to be worth it.

To prevent this from happening (and to give your new relationship breathing space), it’s wise to take your time before introducing your children to your partner.

After all, you don't want your kids to get attached to someone who might be temporary; it's best to wait until the person seems committed to you before bringing them into your world.

We’ll introduce you to singles who share your core values – the really important stuff that long-lasting relationships are built on.

It can be hard to find time to date when you’re a busy single parent but we really believe that the Relationship Questionnaire is worth it – after all, it covers all of the core values that’ll help your new relationship go the distance.

The Guided Communication system is a great way for single Mums and Dads to break the ice and build their confidence, while the secure e Harmony Mail system lets you exchange messages and arrange your first meeting without revealing any private details.
