— and speed dating events are aimed at connecting moms, perhaps replacing old-school methods such as stalking other moms at the park, signing up for Mommy and Me classes and hoping for “playdate chemistry.” Jillian Darlington's son was two when her marriage fell apart, and she credits her network of moms with being her main support system.
“I downloaded Tinder and saw the geo location factor and I thought, ‘Moms need this more than dating people do.’ We’ve always known making friends as an adult is harder,” she said.
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.
“And all my friends in the restaurant business were singles.” So Lambert turned to Hello Mamas, a web app that connects moms by using a matching algorithm with more than 150 criteria for compatibility.
When she had Pierce at age 28, Lambert found the other moms in her neighborhood were part of a completely different demographic.
You hope she will ask for your number because you’d really like to hang out again. This time around, Darlington will use the app she and partner Beth Bryan created, Mom Co — which launched in the San Diego area in February — to find compatible mom friends.
But as the years have gone on — Darlington’s son is now 7— many of those friends have moved away. I feel like I am starting over,” Darlington, 34, told TODAY Parents.

If you’ve been single for a (long) while and have been avoiding online dating, it’s time to bite the bullet.
