It's also important to consider the age and personality of your children.Since hitting the bars is out, start by "dating" for friends, Baumgartner suggests.Look for people who like to do the same things as you do. They offer a casual group setting and regularly scheduled meet-ups, and allow you to do something while you're getting to know the other person.If activities seem too hard on your schedule or psyche right now, Zane says to look into the Internet dating scene."They are fun, flirty, and super ego boosters," says Zane.
"Time with friends, time spent on activities that don't include kids or work, and time alone are all important." If you don't have time for these, your schedule may be too busy to fit dating in -- for now.
