I am a single mom and I always have at least one of my girls with me and it is hard to find a sitter.. How do you meet anyone when you have no free time to meet and it seems all the guys I have met on online dating sites have a lot of issues or just want sex. Its so frustrating.. I also go to church but its like everyone is married. I dont want to bring another man around my kids until i meet a real good man. But its so hard to.. Anyone have any advice on this? Thanks :)

I'm not a single mom, but I have some friends who are.
A few of them are just waiting until their kids are older to start dating again. They say they are too busy to bother with dating between working, raising their kids, and keeping their current social schedule. Plus, they don't have enough time to dedicate to getting to know a guy well enough to introduce them to the kids.

I have a few others who trade off babysitting. There are 4 in the group, and they take turns staying home to sit for the other three. So one weekend, 1 mom will watch all 7 kids while the other 3 go out. The next weekend, a different mom watches all 7 kids and the other 3 go out. Sometimes they go out together, other times they will go on dates with men they've met, and sometimes they just use the evening to stay home and relax without the kids around.
