Team Up!

Connect with other parents (single or married) and friends as child-care resources. I've taken care of their children while they date, and vice-versa. Plus, it's playtime for the children when they get together!

Find the Time to Date

My best advice for dating would be to incorporate the date into things you have to do anyway, such as going to the laundry mat together, working out, or going to the grocery store. Thiis will at least help you get to know the person.
