February is the month of love.
February 14 is the day for couples, Valentine's Day.
But what about single parents who don't have partners? Of course, you can share in the fun of this day too, and single parent dating may just be your ticket to a lovely, fun time.
Understandably, many single parents have mixed feelings about this day.
Well, not only single parents, but all singles that imagine themselves as being surrounded by couples acting all lovey-dovey.
So does this mean that all the single parents should go and hide in their rooms and just let this day pass? I don't think so.
Being a single parent would not and should not stop you from having fun; don't feel depressed or frustrated.
Instead of doing that, why not look beyond the commercialization and worldly trappings of Valentine's Day and try to make it into a memorable day for you or for your kids? Let's try to see two options, and then see which one you like better.
First, redefine your meaning and thoughts of Valentine, and redefine it to meaning a special day for your children.
Who says that this Day of Hearts has to be one of the "eros" kind of love? You can make it into a special event for you and your child, a kind of bonding moment for you guys.
How? Well, why not do something fun and creative together? If you're a dab hand in the kitchen, try cooking your dinner together.
If not, you can also bake a special Valentine's Day cake for your dessert.
You can also make Valentine's cards for each other.
Make them together, but make sure you tell your kids that the cards would be secret and can only be revealed during Valentine's Day.
Not only do these activities divert your attention from an otherwise potentially lonely day, but it also allows you to spend precious moments with your children.
And lastly, if you're one of those single mums who don't want to stay single on this special day, then you can join in on an online dating site this day? It would mark a special day of your life: the day when you decide that you need a romantic partner in life, that would be your first step into putting your desire into action.
If the dating scene overwhelms you, and you can't seem to find it in yourself to get into all the hassle of finding a date because you don't want to lose precious time with your kids or you don't want to risk a blind date with someone, then online dating is the perfect choice for you! Being a single parent, more likely than not, your schedule would be a bit on the haphazard side, so lurking in bars or going out on fixed dates by your family or friends, is just not a practical option.
With online single parent dating, you don't have to physically go miles away just to meet someone: connected with lots of people who are eager to meet you.
Who knows, one of those people might just be the one you are looking for.
Who knows, he just might be a click away.
Isn't that exciting?
