Did you know?  Over 25% of American children are being raised by at least one parent who is not partnered.  But even though single parenting is common, when it comes to dating they're all too often given the same advice and resources as non-parents.  If you are, have been, or were raised by a single parent, you know that dating after children is simply not the same.

This survey is for everyone who is a single parent looking for love; has been in that situation; or who was raised by one or more parents in that situation.  

Your anonymous answers will be used to shape the first science-based book to take single parents through every phase of dating, making sure it includes what you want to know, and incorporates experiences important to you.   Dr. Duana Welch--relationship science expert/author/coach and former single mom--is currently writing this book.  As with her first book Love Factually, this one will use science to address every stage of dating; but this one will specifically cover issues and topics relevant to finding and keeping love for single parents.  

Thank you very much for your wisdom and help.
