Welcome to a new type of dating scenario, where everyone is looking for The One with total package potential: Kids the same age! Mom Co combines geolocating technology with profile matching so that moms can interact via messaging, arrange playdates, and find out about local community events and kid-related services.The Mom Co app “helps women break the ice and saves you from that awkward feeling of when you meet a cool mom, but you are shy and don’t want to ask for a number.” A recent poll found an interesting dichotomy in the mom friend search.Of more than 2,000 mom's polled, 82 percent said they find it hard to make mom friends. — and speed dating events are aimed at connecting moms, perhaps replacing old-school methods such as stalking other moms at the park, signing up for Mommy and Me classes and hoping for “playdate chemistry.” Jillian Darlington's son was two when her marriage fell apart, and she credits her network of moms with being her main support system.
