Entering the world of modern online dating as a single mom is a whole new level of ‘putting yourself out there’.
Online dating is a great way to dip your toes back into the dating scene without having to make the time for going out and meeting people. Not only do you get to know a bit about your potential matches ahead of time, but you also have the convenience of talking whenever you have time… all at your fingertips!
It can be difficult, though, for single moms getting back out there to know where to start when it comes to their profile or how to talk about their child(ren). You have the unique challenge of wanting to show what you offer while also being completely transparent about being a single mom.
Constructing an attractive profile doesn’t have to be another thing on your plate.
With the help of our dating profile experts, you can skip the struggle and have everything done for you! Our team curates a bio specifically for you, helps you choose your most effective photos, gives you unlimited support, and more!
Meanwhile, here are some general guidelines to help get you started on creating a dating profile as a single mom.
No doubt your phone is likely filled with pictures of your child(ren), but it is important to your future matches that they see photos of you on your profile.
While some choose to add photos of their children to their dating profile, it can make it difficult for new matches to find and get to know you. The whole point is for someone to get to know you, so you don’t have to rush to introducing your children… even just in photos!
Your profile will likely fill them in on your mom status, so you might as well use your profile photos as a chance to show a bit of yourself and your personality!
Talk about you
You may have forgotten how to talk about yourself by this point in motherhood, but now is your chance to refresh the skill!
Similar to your photos, your matches are looking to know a bit about you first and foremost. Whatever their stance on children is, they are first going to want to build a connection with you!
For this reason, it is important to fill your bio mostly with information about yourself and your hobbies/interests.
You should certainly add in that you are a single mom, but it doesn’t have to literally define you. Once you and your matches start connecting there will be plenty of time to talk about your child(ren).
Add your interests
Of course your children are your world, but they are not your entire personality.
Fill your profile with information about the things you love to do in addition to motherhood. What are some of your hobbies, talents, or favorite pastimes?
Show your potential matches all of the amazing things you offer and all of the things you enjoy most about life. Let them get a glimpse of all that makes you unique and such a catch!
Your matches are going to feel that initial spark while learning about you and who you are as an individual before anything else.
To put these guidelines into practice, here is an example profile of a single mom that not only demonstrates her personality and tells matches who she is, but also doesn’t hide the fact that she is a hardworking single mom.

My life is filled to the brim with fun and laughter – but I suppose I could make space for one more 😉
I am a speech language pathologist by day, a DIY and up-cycling interior designer by nights/weekends, and a single mom to one beautiful girl by… well… all the time!
If I’m not working on whatever my latest project is, I am likely adventuring around different towns with my daughter looking for unique thrifts or just enjoying different views! I’m always up for a good road trip, long or short, they are like a mini vacation to me!
I do have my own side business where I sell the pieces I upgrade. It lets me use my creative side, and gives me a way to work with my hands in my down time.
I am a very goofy person who often sing-narrates what she’s doing and dramatizes everyday occurrences for comedic effect. I have a very positive outlook on life and would love to find someone that compliments that and wants to join my daughter and I in the many adventures of life!
A perfect profile the easy way
While profile examples are a great source for getting ideas, they can never apply to you specifically and teach you how to add in what makes you special.
So many single moms struggle to complete a profile that can describe them accurately and still come off as enticing and attractive. Not only does it take time to craft a perfect profile, but it takes skill as well.
