Sometimes it seems I’m swimming in a very shallow dating pool, but I haven’t given up and taken in fifty cats. So here’s the down-low on dating sites I’ve tried as a SWM (single working mother). And remember: You can do it at home, at night after the kids go to bed, in your pajamas if you want. You set it up through your Facebook account and set your preferences within minutes.
You won’t waste time filling out large forms and questionnaires, and your pictures are right there on Facebook.
So if I make a mistake or want a second look at someone, I can backtrack and revisit a potential match.
Cons: Like on Tinder, you’re searching men knowing very little about them.

Phone apps are quick to install and use but often come with glitches. Additionally, because men tend to simply look at the photos without reading the profile blurb, some were caught off-guard and turned off when they discovered I was a mom.
