Dating Ideas for Single Parents
Plan for a Movie and then Lunch.
Plan for a fun movie followed by lunch at your favorite restaurants, as cliche as it sounds, but this dating idea is one of the simplest and easiest ever, if it happens to be your first date. No doubt this date is going to be pressure filled, but a fun movie and a familiar location to dine at, would ease out the pressure and it would only be easier to gel with each other. Plus it is not difficult to find a baby sitter in the late afternoon or early evening.
Head to an Amusement Park
If you have a problem finding a baby sitter, just take your kids along on the date. Head to an amusement park! This will allow your kids to gel with your date as well. While the kids enjoy the rides and play in the park, you get some lone time for yourselves. Get to know each other and if you guys are comfortable and enjoy each others company, go ahead and plan a full-fledged date, (this time without the kids).
Dating as single parents can be a little uncomfortable and awkward, to get over this, plan for a double date. Get your friend and her husband along or vice versa. This will not only help you to open up on the date, but also make you feel less nervous and more comfortable. And if you think the date is worth giving another chance, plan for another date during the week, so as to get to know each other deeper.
Enjoy the Karaoke Nights Together
You can have a blast at the karaoke bar, all you have to do is, know the words to some cheesy yet fun song, that can make your date feel at ease. Here, you are not there to impress each other, but rather to pass some fun time and get to know each other. So, get on the dance floor sing, dance and enjoy the music. There is no rush that you have to get into a relationship soon, so take your time, know each other well, and try to take things as they come.
Watch the Sunrise Together
If you find it difficult to take time out of your busy schedule due to the long working hours, plan for a moonlight trek. Go out on a trek at 4 in the morning. You don’t have to worry about kids, as they would be fast asleep. With headlamps and a trekking suit on, climb the steep land and reach the peak to watch the sunrise together. Sit down and talk, spend some quality time and then get back to your daily routine. After the meet, you probably purposefully will take some time out to plan a date again!
