There are ways for single parents to go on first dates even when you can't find a sitter for your child.

It is so hard to get back in the dating game as a single parent. Especially when you are in a position where you can't find someone to watch your child. So what do you when you want to meet up with someone nice, but you have your kid. You work around it.

I ran into this problem a few times. Luckily, the person I wanted to meet up with had a child too. So we figured out a way to meet up, enjoy some coffee or a quick meal while bringing our kids with us.

The key is to find a place that has something to do for the kids. If the kids are around the same age and like to play at playgrounds. Meet up at spot like "Luvs 2 Play" or Air U. They have lots of fun stuff for the kids to do while you and your "date" have a drink and sit off to the side and talk.

This is good for those times you have the kids. Of course you will want to actually go on a adult date without them. But this is good way to hang with someone you are interested in and get to see how things go from there.
