    Hi Vicky, with me its not that i dont have a clue about dating its finding the time and energy to go anywhere lol… Spend most my time running around after my kids when free from them I just wanna lie on sofa an watch tv, not go anywhere😄 I’m 36, single parent of 2 kids, boy of 9 and girl 6.

    I know what you mean, I have always got my kids.  If I found someone then I would definitely find the time and energy somehow lol.
    The idea of online dating scares me.

    Hello VickyS!

    I’ve read your story and decided to cheer you up a little!  Online dating is great single parents like you and me.  I love the possibility of asking straightforward questions about other persons expectations which I am a bit shy to do offline.

    Hey Vicky, online dating is a great way to flex your muscles so to speak. You can choose who you want to engage with, stop engaging if you get uncomfortable or take it offline if you feel you would like to get to know the person more. I think many guys our age and in our situation are just as apprehensive. With current restrictions you can’t meet anyone in person so its a great time to dip your toe in. And as Anthony said you get to ask questions and have conversations online you may take ages to do in person.

    Thank you Anthony, that’s good advice. You are right about asking questions as you can decide if you still want to speak to them.

    Yes 3trollsmum, I have spoken to a few guys but haven’t really gone anywhere. But have found out things about them and not having to meet them is a bonus
