Being a mum is hard work. There is always something to do. Our days are planned out with school runs and nap times, dinners to prepare and cook, and washing to clean. It’s no wonder we are all exhausted come bedtime. But what do you do when you’re a single Mum and finding the evenings a little bit lonely? What do you do when the children are in bed but you want some company, someone to share the sofa, to talk to and confide in, someone to hold and be intimate with? What do you do when you’re ready to move on with your life, feel those butterflies in your tummy and meet someone but circumstances at home don’t make it quite that easy?
Someone finds love every 14 minutes
Several of my mum friends have found their partners through dating websites. While they’re not for everyone, I’m one of those who met the love of their life on the internet over 16 years ago.
eharmony is the UK’s most successful dating site for long-term relationships. They have helped create half a million relationships with over 5 million users in the UK alone, so it’s no wonder the stats say someone finds love on the site every 14 minutes. Incredibly, there have been over 120,000 marriages in the last 10 years which is testament to its central goal of helping create lasting, long-term relationships.
Dating can be a scary place for single mums. Gone are the days of being carefree and impulsive: having a relationship with someone when you’re ready for it can be daunting. eharmony understands this and knows it can take time. That’s why it has a wealth of advice and relationship tips with a huge archive of blogs and videos for those seeking love.
Matches that are compatible with you
eharmony describes itself as ‘The Brains Behind the Butterflies’, which describes its method of creating connections between users. This happens through a deep study of potential partners’ suitability based on its unique questionnaire, which measures couples on 18 dimensions of compatibility, drawing on factors such as character, age, energy levels, intellect, propensity for spirituality (or otherwise) and family values. So while other dating sites can have you up and running with a profile quickly but require endless hours of scrolling, swiping and searching, eharmony takes a different approach. Using your answers on the questionnaire, it sets about finding someone who is compatible with you and gives you quality matches (it’s not about quantity).
Why shouldn’t you find love and that special someone? Life is hard enough without having to do it alone. eharmony has genuinely helped many of my friends and it’s been so good to see their relationships flourish and their lives transformed. Online dating with eharmony can fit around your busy lifestyle so when you’re ready to meet someone you can do so in the comfort of your own home, knowing that when you eventually meet in person you’ve already asked them what their favourite band is or how they drink their tea/gin* (*one of life’s important questions)
