Single moms and Chinese dating

There is more to Chinese dating than meets the eye.  Not every woman who has submitted an online dating profile is in her twenties.  There are, in fact, plenty of single moms looking for love as well.

When you first decided that you wanted to try Chinese dating, the idea of single moms probably didn’t pop into your head.  After all, dating a single mom, especially online, can be a real challenge – especially if you don’t have kids yourself.  It really does take a special guy to want to even try.


However, we are here to tell you that single moms can be great romantic partners.  If you are open to the idea of dating a single mom, here are some tips for you:

  • Remember that she’s a mom and her kids will always come first.  Familial ties are extremely important in the Chinese culture, so you need to understand that her kids will always come first.  However, this is probably true for a mom in any culture.  Try to be as supportive and understanding as possible.
  • Don’t ask about the father of her children.  If she wants to talk about her child’s father, she will.  Do not bring this topic up, especially when the relationship is new.  She will eventually discuss her past but probably won’t until she knows that you’re truly interested in a relationship.
  • Be patient.  Many single moms aren’t as open as single women without kids.  They have built up walls to protect themselves and their children.  Show her that you are serious about the relationship and be patient, and she will eventually open up.
  • Be nice to her kids.  If you want to have a romantic relationship with this lady, be nice to her kids.  If you don’t like kids, dating a single mom probably isn’t the best idea.
