With Father’s Day right around the corner, we had dads on the mind this week and decided to take a quick look into how single dads do on the dating scene. And what we found? Well, Happy Father’s Day dads because as it turns out, women are very much attracted to responsible, caring men who know how to take care of their kids.
After surveying its members, the popular dating site Zoosk uncovered that 83 percent of single women are likely to date a single father. Nice!
Wondering why women find single dads so appealing? After asking single dads how they approach dating, we came up with a few conclusions:
1. Single dads are more discerning.
Rather than looking for just a pretty face, single dads want someone who can be a positive role model. In fact, 44 percent of men start evaluating their significant other’s parenting skills on or before the first date.
2. Single dads want to take it slow.
Single dads won’t risk their kids getting emotionally attached to a partner unless the relationship has a future. 43 percent of dads said they would only introduce their kids to their significant other when they know it’s serious.
3. Single dads are emotionally mature.
Putting their kids’ needs before their own is a telltale sign that single dads are emotionally mature. 44 percent of dads admit they’re likely to allow their children to dictate their relationship, meaning if their children don’t like their significant other, they won’t continue the relationship.
