You met her at the park. She offers you a drink. Welcome to a new type of dating scenario, where everyone is looking for The One with total package potential: Kids the same age! Shares parenting values! Now, a new bunch of apps — think, Tinder for moms! Jillian Darlington's son was two when her marriage fell apart, and she credits her network of moms with being her main support system.
This time around, Darlington will use the app she and partner Beth Bryan created, MomCo — which launched in the San Diego area in February — to find compatible mom friends. MomCo combines geolocating technology with profile matching so that moms can interact via messaging, arrange playdates, and find out about local community events and kid-related services.
Darlington said her own experience using dating apps such as Tinder inspired her to create Mom Co. Of more than 2, mom's polled, 82 percent said they find it hard to make mom friends. And yet, when asked if they would use an app or other online matchmaking service to find friends, 57 percent said they would not compared to 43 percent who said they would.
New York City mom Barbara Lambert was so desperate to meet like-minded moms that she was willing to try another app inspired by online dating technology. Mom to 4-year-old Pierce, Lambert co-owns and manages with her chef husband a one-Michelin star restaurant The Musket Room.
When she had Pierce at age 28, Lambert found the other moms in her neighborhood were part of a completely different demographic. So Lambert turned to Hello Mamasa web app that connects moms by using a matching algorithm with more than criteria for compatibility. include everything from location and working status to and ages of kids, personality preferences, family challenges and stages of motherhood.
Lambert liked that she could pick and choose what information she wanted to share. Lambert had a few playdates and a continuing text friendship with moms she met through the app.
These days, as she contemplates having another child, she uses it as a resource for day-to-day happenings in the city. Meg Gerritson, co-founder of Hello Mamassays the app is about empowering moms to get out of the house and meet other moms in an efficient way.
It dawned on Gerritson that millennials such as herself could really use help with mom dating, and after ing forces with partners Julia High and Christa Terry, Hello Mamas was launched nationally in January of and has a mobile version coming out later this year.
And she recalled her own struggles of making close mom friends after having daughter Sasha five years ago. So Frank used the speed dating concept and invited moms to come and meet others. The event was a roaring success, says Frank, with moms not wanting to be pulled away by facilitators when the four minutes were up.
It helps keep you sane to know you are not by yourself. Even as mom friends go high-tech, the old-school methods still work. She met a few people through her husband, who grew up in the area, but is always on the hunt for more like-minded moms.
She was thrilled when after a meeting some of them invited her out for a drink. Kavita Varma-White is the mom of teens ages 15 and She was forced to make new mom friends when her family moved cross-country from Florida to Bellevue, Wa. Follow her on Twitter kvarmawhite.
