Is there a charge for this service?
No, it is completely free.
How do I convince my kid this whole thing is a good idea?
The fact is, your kid has nothing to lose. We don’t promise that you’ll find your kid’s perfect mate on here, but we do promise that when it comes to finding a mate, two heads are better than one!
Are all the “moms” actually mothers?
"Moms” can mean grandmoms, aunts, friends, etc.
I’m a kid – can I post myself?
Yes, but your odds of finding a match are better if you get your mom to post you, since it’s mostly moms on the site.
We are working on a feature by which kids can post themselves, and be identified as themselves in a straightforward manner.
Is there an age limit on the kids?
Not at all.
Is there a way to search kids’ profiles according to religion?
No. However, many moms do talk about their kids’ religions in the profiles.
Is there same-sex dating on here?
Yes. All profiles must declare the kid’s gender, and which gender the kid is “seeking.” The profiles are searchable this way, as well.
What should I include in my kid's profile?
That’s up to you! Some basics we recommend: occupation, interests and hobbies, what he/she is looking for in a person. At least enough to start a conversation.
I am having trouble uploading my kid’s profile.
Have you filled out all the necessary fields? They all need to be complete before you can save the profile.
How do I edit my kid’s profile?
Click on the Date My Single Kid logo in the upper right portion of the homepage to get to the DMSK homepage, then click on the Add/Edit tab. This will bring up your kid’s profile, with the opportunity to edit any component (click on “Edit this” or “Edit picture).
My photo uploaded, but it is cropped strangely.
Please re-upload the photo by going to page where you can edit the profile (see above). Once the photo is uploaded, use the cropping tool:
Using the cursor, click and drag over the portion of the photo you want to use. Doing this will create a cropping square. You can then click and hold over the center of the square to move it around, or click and drag at its corners or sides to make it larger or smaller. When you have the portion of the photo you’re happy with, click Save below.
How does the search function work in the “Browse all single kids” section?
Fill out the fields to indicate whom you are searching FOR, not who your kid is.
I can’t find my kid’s profile. What gives?
There are several possibilities, but these are the two most likely:
1. You recently created the profile and it is still in moderation. We screen all profiles before they go live to make sure the content is safe for everyone. You will get an email when the profile is approved. This will not take more than two days at most and usually takes much less time.
2. You are accidentally preventing your kid from showing up in the search. If you’re searching for your kid’s profile by name in the Browse All Kids section, make sure all the fields above “Name” are clear (they start off clear, but you can also clear them by pressing the Reset button). Then type in your kid’s name and press Go.
(If, say, you search for your kid “Jon,” but you’ve already set the form to indicate you are searching for females, Jon won’t come up, even if you’ve put his name in. Reset the form, then put his name in.)
I haven’t heard back from anyone I’ve contacted.
If a mom messages you or replies to a message from you, you will get an email notification from Faboverfifty telling you that you have a private message. (Make sure it doesn’t go in your Spam filter!)
Having said that, there is no guarantee that other moms will message you or reply to you; this is simply symptomatic of any dating site.
Following suit, no one is obligated to respond to any message!
Why do some profiles not have photos?
These moms have chosen not to upload their kids' photos. We very much encourage photos, because they make it more likely other moms will want to contact/respond to you. Physical compatibility is important!
Why can’t I login to the site?
Are you registered on Faboverfifty? Without a FOF user account, you won’t be able to use Date My Single Kid.
Why are there no kids from my area on here?
We are still young and growing. We hope more kids are uploaded near you; please keep checking back!
Do we have to notify you when our kids hook up?
No, however, we would love to hear about any "success stories" that result from our site and share them (with your permission). Please get in touch with Colby at Colby@faboverfity.com.
