SingleParentMeet.com has the least expensive plan out of any online dating site we reviewed. They understand how expensive it can be to raise a child on your own, and try to help you out. SingleParentMeet.com offers a standard membership plan for 1 or 6 months.

You can choose to pay an extra $1 more per month for the 6 month plan to get a special profile highlight offer. This will highlight your profile making you more visible to other members in their searches. SingleParentMeet.com bills you up front for your entire membership length. It is free to view your matches, but you must signup for a plan to contact other members and see if any members are interested in you.

Features / Search

The search is the main way to find singles on SingleParentMeet.com. They don't have a personality test like most other online dating sites, however, they allow you to fill out many personality traits in your profile. These include the basics of appearance and lifestyle, your top interests, open-ended essays about yourself, and, unique to SingleParentMeet.com, video and audio clips of yourself. You should also add a few photos to get your profile noticed more. You can search profiles based on many personality traits and also use a keyword search to find members. One neat search feature is the "I'm Interested" section which shows you photos of members you can browse to see if you are interested. If you are interested, you can send the member a flirt to see if they are also interested in you.

SingleParentMeet.com also allows you to search by who's online now and by member's having a birthday today. Your profile keeps track of your activity and the members you have interacted with. SingleParentMeet.com will also show you matches based on your profile preferences. A unique feature to SingleParentMeet.com is their matching based on astrological sign.

Online dating is expensive, so it's great to see an option that's affordable, especially when most of my income goes to raise my family. It's good to know that the guys on this site are already comfortable dating a woman with kids from a prior relationship. No awkward first date "moment of truths" since the topic is out in the open.

This is the worst site ever. They dont care about the clients finding someone. They just care about the money. Scam! You get the same profiles over and over again and again. Most are old or fake. They they try to pass them off as new. I get new profiles in my area. Well 150 miles away is not in my area. Waste of money and time.
