The general profile page is easy to fill out, but there are a billion different questions you can expand on to determine if you’re a match or someone’s “enemy.” A lot of the questions can be good, but fair warning: Some here are racy.
I got a few decent dates from Ok Cupid with actual nice guys, but I also got a ton of messages from guys way too young for me looking for a MILF (barf), or who fake their profiles (adding kids) to scam me.
Overall Websites allow you to upload more photos than apps, and you can narrow your search parameters. And be prepared to get hit up by creeps or people outside of your dating search terms. Will you have the same ease and time you had before you became Mommy?
Additional sites to try: • JDate • Plenty Of Fish (tremendous hit or miss with this site) • Zoosk (same as above—not successful for me, and cheesy!
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.
Photos are easy to upload, and you can pick and choose how many questions you want to answer or leave blank.
Overall, I recommend avoiding this site unless you have time to set up the profile, want to pay for the features and don’t mind meeting people halfway across your state. ) and works like other web dating sites—you use specific search parameter’s to filter through matches, which makes your hunt easier.Cons: Since you’re limited with your search parameters, you may sift through a lot of matches just to find one decent guy. Bumble Pros: What makes it unique is women have to pitch the first message. While there have been one or two saucy gentlemen I’ve come across, for the most part the men have wanted to go on dates pretty quickly.From search alone you only know age and distance, and then it’s up to the men to fill in the blanks briefly with some profile description. This leaves you wondering things like: • How tall is he? (My experience with Tinder was that men could waste your precious single-mom minutes messaging you back and forth.) Bumble’s biggest plus: You can “take back” a negative, left swipe for free (unlike Tinder)!In order to message people, you have to pay for a subscription.The pro here is that men who are paying are more likely to message back and make dates.
