We all have the need for companionship in our lives, because it’s just pure human nature.

People are social beings and we desire to love and to be loved, but in order for this to happen we must go out on dates.

How many times have you found the perfect woman or man to go out with, but you weren’t able to schedule the date because your babysitter couldn’t come over and watch your kids? You would never guess the amount of people that have to give up any chance of happiness because they can't find someone they feel could be trusted to watch their children so that they could go out on a date.

The sad truth is that there are a lot of single parents out there that would love to find someone to share their life with, but have a hard time finding a reliable babysitter.

Well, there are a couple of things that you can do to get around this little issue. Now, no one is blaming their kids because they can't go out on dates. Not only is that wrong from a moral standpoint, but it’s just bad parenting if you think it’s your kids’ fault. You have to understand that you have a responsibility to your children and they should always come first no matter what. That doesn’t mean you have to give up dating all together, though. You can still go out and have some fun. You just need to know how.

We’ve provided three tips that you could try…

Tip 1: Hire Your Babysitter To Watch Your Children

The first thing you should do is try a babysitter. If you have a regular babysitter, then ask them if they can watch the children for you so you can go out on a date. If they have other plans, offer to pay them extra if you can. Usually the extra money will be sufficient enough for you to get your date planned out. Of course, that plan doesn’t always work out for you and you will need to try something else. You can always ask family members if they can watch your kids for you.

Tip 2: Have Your Children’s Grandparents Watch And Spoil Them

Grandparents love to babysit because it gives them the chance to spoil your children rotten and then send them back home. If you are lucky enough to have your parents living close by, you can ask them if they would be willing to watch the little ones for a bit while you go out. Resorting to family members for babysitting is a great way of letting your children spend more time with them as well. Everyone wins in that type of a situation.

Tip 3: Take Your Kids On The Date With You

If you can't get a babysitter and your family can't watch them for you, then you only have one option left. You have to figure out a date that you can include your children on and make sure that the person you want to date is willing to give it a shot. Not only will this give you time to get to know this person, but it will allow your children to get to know them better as well. Anyone that isn’t willing to go on a date with your children probably isn’t someone you want around them all that much anyway.

Only use tip 3 if you feel a strong positive vibe about your date, otherwise apply tips 1 and 2.
