A Single Mom Dating Show. It’s About Time.

Crazy how MySpace and Facebook have changed the way we date. In just a few seconds you can scope out your ex’s relationship status, flirtatous comments and daily activities. Twitter makes it even worse. Maybe I should go on a delete binge tonight.

How often do you delete your the Ex-Profiles on MySpace and Facebook? Can you do it? Do you think I can?

Deleting an ex is like permanently severing all ties…but then I think of the ex’s who were my friends – the ones I genuinely want to stay in touch with. And then I think of the sting when I see their “latest activity.”

I vote for delete.

I could never do it. Ever. Seriously? Film crews following me around. But I can’t wait to see this show! TLC is three weeks away from shooting Single Moms, a live reality dating show.

Three single moms will be filmed in real time. Men watching the show can apply to date them and then be flown in to meet the moms. According to the New York Post:

In the European version of the show, “Ensam mamma soker,” each of the three moms are introduced through personal ads. Men viewing the show can respond and, after rigorous background checks, each woman invites around 40 men to visit her hometown where they are whittled down to a group of about eight.

Each week another suitor is eliminated until only two are left. Then, the finalists meet the mom’s kids and see if they can fit in to her family.

Read the entire story here.

And thanks to Chrissy over at Glamour who tipped her readers off to the news. This show sounds awesome! A few concerns – namely the kids. Will they be in front of the cameras? How many men will they meet? I’m sure the producers will keep that in mind. Someone is going to have to tape this for me because I don’t have TV. Darn it.

Would you ever consider a reality TV show? Will you watch this show?

ABOUT SINGLE MOMS: How is this different than the “Bachelorette”? (I hope these Moms won’t be taped rolling around on the floor like “dogs” it was soooo embarassing on “The Bachelor”.).

It’s live…so the men will literally be watching the show one week and then on it the next!

Rolling around on the floor? God – I hate those network dating shows – prefer TLC, which is why I think this one could be good.

Yikes, if anyone watched my life live they’d probably want to send me some Xanax not come for a visit.

It might be interesting anyway.

Well, it’s not actually live, despite what some of the press about it said? How do I know this? I am one of the “suitors” for a wonderful single on the show. We started shooting in April, and we will wrap by early May, the show won’t premeire until June from everything I’ve found. The eliminations aren’t real-time obviously, and it’s not open up for other men to apply to date these women as some of the press also states.

And, it’s nothing like the Bachelorette. This is more family-focused and less dramatic (at least from my days of filming). It is more of a feel-good story. No big rose ceremonies or anything, when she whittled us guys down from 6 to 4, it was as simple as her asking 4 of us back for her to get to know better.

Also, I don’t know if the press is correct that when it gets down to the final 2 we meet her family, because honestly, I’ve already met her family, spent an evening taping with them the other day (and go back with my own kids tomorrow to tape), but I have no idea if we’re down to only 2 of us guys or not, because I haven’t seen the other guys in over a week now. But, I do know that as of last Friday, all 4 of us were still there, but that could’ve changed dramatically over the weekend…

Where do I sign up?

Once I saw the end of the blurb on t.v., I had to jump on line to find more details to be sure that what I heard was true. Hope it’s not just another “Bachelor” reality show.
