Sometimes dating can seem like the toughest thing to do. Being in love and being loved back is a rewarding experience but when you've had bad luck with love or if you've been hurt by someone you fell in love with, things can become very difficult. Love can be a very complicated thing but when you've had a bad relationship or if you've lost your partner and have a kid, falling in love again and moving on can be very difficult. Being able to trust someone new and allowing them to be a part of your and your kid's life cannot be easy. Once you lose someone you love your priorities in life tend to change and letting your walls down and letting someone in can be tough. 

Raising a child is tough as it is but doing it while being a single parent can be a lot tougher and dating someone new while you raise a kid on your own can be too much to handle sometimes. As a parent, you value your kid enough to understand that adding a new person to their life can add a lot more drama to your life and it is very important to ensure that your child gets a positive environment to grow in. It is also essential to ensure that your personal life does not take a toll on your child or their mental health while moving on and taking another shot at finding love.

Here are some dating tips that every single parent needs. 

1. Remember that you may not be looking for someone to fill in for your partner and be a parent to your child but it is still very important to ensure that the person you date should be a good role model for your child. Your child is going to be spending a lot of time around this person and your child may learn a lot of things from them and you definitely want them to learn the right things. 

2. Don't forget to talk to your child and explain the situation to him or her. Tell your child how you feel about moving on in life and how you feel the need to have another adult to depend on and be your companion. Be very patient because your child may take their own sweet time to accept the changes in your life. 

3. Don't feel guilty about dating someone new and moving on in life. Remember that this does not make you a bad person, it only makes you human to want another shot a love and companionship in life. You are a single parent and it does not make you a bad parent to want more from life. 

4. Be upfront with the people you meet and let them know beforehand that you are a single parent and what you're looking for in a relationship. Don't hide any information and be sure to tell them what you expect from them as a partner. 

5. Take your time to get to know someone before you make them a part of your child's life. Take things slow and explore your relationship with the person in question before you introduce them to your kid. You don't want to introduce someone to your child too soon because if they end up bonding with your child and then leaving, it can take a toll on your kid. 

6. Be cautious about who you date and how much you trust them with your kid. Do a background check on the person before you make them a big part of your life and no matter how much you love them or trust them, don't leave them alone with your kid during the initial stages. 

7. Speak to the person you're dating and ensure that you're on the same page when it comes to your child and having more kids and the future of your relationship. You cannot have a future with someone if they want kids and you don't or vice versa. This is an important conversation to have before you get seriously involved with someone new and make them meet your child.
