Memoirs of a Single Dad was a blog about single parenting founded by me in 2010. At that time, I was a divorced single dad of just over five years and was trying to make my way through the dating scene all while maintaining a presence in my son’s life. I would come to learn many lessons – not only about dating but about parenting, co-parenting and relationships in general.
After much thought (and $30 per month in hosting since 2010), I have decided to officially retire the Memoirs of a Single Dad website. I’m no longer a single dad and had really outgrown the site. Memoirs of a Single Dad really meant a lot to me, though. It was my home on the web for nearly 10 years. I decided not to just take it down, but rather, I migrated all of the relevant articles to Dadtography.com and redirect to my new site.
Memoirs of a Dating Dad – A book by Daniel Ruyter
In December of 2011, I published my first book, Memoirs of a Dating Dad. While the book isn’t a pure memoir, nor is it a pure how-to or self-help book, it touches on both, guiding the reader through twelve chapters and sixteen real-life dating experiences that helped shape my opinion on dating as a single parent. Thankfully, I found my match in 2010 when I met JenB online (of all places).
