You can type email messages, engage in a live chat or even talk using your webcams, building some of the most in depth profiles around.
All you have to do is to answer a few multiple choice questions relating to your gender, physical characteristics like body type, height, eye and hair color, your ethnicity, religion and lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking.
There are a few mandatory questions as well, however, there's zero way to tell which is mandatory and which isn't when you fill out the forms, so just fill in as much as you can (as I did), and you should go through this portion easily.
If you choose nothing about the kind of person or relationship you're after, it'll default to showing you as only around for the forums.
Since this is a site which is serious about making connections between single parents, there are questions on your marital status and attitude towards having children which you have to answer in order to register.
Then considering that single parents rarely have the leisure to waste time on incompatible dates, Single Parents Mingle offers a detailed profile-creating section.
