This will be a two-part discussion that covers single parents who are dating as well as married people trying to carve out some time for date nights with their spouse. Both scenarios have their own unique challenges. During the hour, we’ll talk about some of the biggest dating issues:

  • How and where do single parents meet people to date?
  • Should you tell potential dates right away that you have kids?
  • When should your kids meet the person you’re dating?
  • What if your kids don’t like the new boyfriend or girlfriend?
  • Is “date night” for married people necessary or overrated?
  • Does “date night” really keep your relationship stronger?
  • What makes a good “date night”?
