) – or better yet, choose a couple of places and let him pick one.
Some place in public, when if it doesn’t work out, you can both go your separate ways easily (and even if it does work out for just only one and the other doesn’t know about it).A theatre would not be a 1st date (or even a 3rd date) option (unless the guy was heavily into the theatre). Most dates are to a restaurant, sports bar or movie (don’t select a romantic movie – more of an action/adventure one)How old is your kid(s)? Is it an option to leave them alone with a speed dial to your cell?
Give specific instructions they cannot leave the house or a list of friends houses they can go to. Or, can they spend the night (make sure most or the dates are one the weekend). I am also a single parent.
I am 48 (gosh I’m getting old) with a 12 yo son.You def need to figure out what to do with your kid(s). They cannot and should not go with you. Is there other single parents close by?
Can you take turns watching each other’s kids?

Subject: Budget101.com : Dating on a budget
As I re-enter the world of dating, I find myself with some questions related to money. First of all, I don’t know what to expect in terms of who will pay for dates.
How do you navigate through this? For example, I don’t have the money to go to the theater, but if someone wanted to treat me, I would certainly enjoy it.
Any thoughts on how to do this dating thing with limited time and resources?
