Dating can be tough for single moms in the Music City. When you work long hours and Friday night finally gets here, most of the time you don't feel like getting out.
And if you are lucky to have family or a sitter to watch your kids, usually you can't stay out very late. Going to bars can be a hassle and, as my mother always told me, "You won't find gold in a trash can. One of the best places to meet people is in local churches.
Most churches have single church groups and have mixers from time to time for their members to meet other singles. Churches also offer softball, choir concerts and other events that are a good way to meet those involved in the church. If church isn't your thing, a Titans or Vanderbilt football game is a good way to meet single men in Nashville.
Guys love football and a game on Saturday or Sunday will be packed with eligible guys. If you do go to a Vanderbilt game, you really don't want to sit in the student section.

The kids get pretty rowdy and get up to walk around during the game. Make sure you sit on the press box side where most of the well-behaved fans sit. If you go to a Titans game, make sure you find a place to tailgate before the game. That way you have some time to mingle with fellow Titans fans beforehand.
Another option is online dating. Meeting a guy online used to be taboo, but now it's the new norm. Match has been around for years and has a good track record of converting dates into marriages. Other sites have members all over the world who can contact you, but SingleNashville.
That way you don't have guys in North Dakota blowing up your inbox when you'd rather take the time to see messages from men who actually live close to you. Its popularity stems from being able to see which members are close to you when you are online.
If online dating isn't your thing, a trip to the store could change your life forever. Years ago, I used to manage a grocery store and several times a week I would see male customers approach females in the store and start talking to them in hopes of getting their .
I have even seen women ask men out while shopping. Dog owners can meet other single dog owners at dog parks around Nashville.
Single guys have dogs, too, and on Saturdays those places are covered with men. Dogs are good ice breakers, too, and it's easy to start a conversation if your four-legged friend is playing with another dog that belongs to someone you are attracted to.
You've always heard the saying that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, right? Go check out some restaurants by busy office buildings downtown.
My cousin met her husband at the Jersey Mike's next to his law office at lunchtime. Both were standing in line and they began to make small talk. Eighteen months later they were getting married.
Whether you are downtown, at the park or online, you can meet a guy if you know where to look. Good luck!
