It’s Complicated for TLC’s Single Dad Seeking…
New series comes this Spring to TLC about single parents and their dating lives
(Los Angeles, CA) – SINGLE DAD SEEKING…(working title) follows five single fathers working hard to raise their kids. As they strive to provide the ideal lives for their sons and daughters, they each feel that a critical piece of their family is missing. These dedicated dads are searching to find not only love in their lives, but also a woman willing to love their children. Enter five women, each without children of her own, seeking her happily ever after with a responsible, caring man. In addition to finding love, these women sincerely want to be mothers. None of them have found the opportunity–until now.
These single dads and women have dated via phone calls, video chat, text and email and think they’ve found a match. But none of these singles have met in person. Could they be a match made in heaven? Maybe… They are
now ready to take the next step, moving in together for a trial run to see if it is meant to be, kids and all! Yet dropping into an already existing family has its hurdles. Moms aren’t made overnight and parenting isn’t for everyone.
From awkward first meetings to steamy first dates, from adventures in babysitting to dealing with teen angst, these couples might feel they have gotten into more than they’ve bargained for. Building relationships is hard and takes a lot of work…but when kids are involved, these dads must find a way to strike the delicate balance between fatherhood and finding love.
