Frequently Asked Questions


Will Mom Meet Mom sell my contact information?

Mom Meet Mom will never, ever sell your personal contact information - this includes your name, your email address, your children's information, or any other identifying information that would allow advertisers or other entities to contact you in any way. However, Mom Meet Mom does collect sanitized (anonymous) demographic data to compile into curated reports that we may share with marketing firms who want to learn more about patterns of consumption associated with mothers and households.

What is the process for creating a profile?

First step, you sign up (which you've already done, yay!) and then you start answering questions right there on your profile page. Plenty of the prompts are optional so you can share as much or as little as you like, BUT the more you share, the better your matches will be. Once you've answered as many questions as you want to, we'll generate your first batch of matches! And at that point, it's up to you whether you want to reach out to some or all of the potential mom friends we suggest to say hi or to schedule a meet up.

Can I search for other moms without creating a profile?

No. To ensure that moms have the best possible experience using Mom Meet Mom, there is no way to search individual user profiles without signing up for an account.

Do I have to use my real name to sign up?

We can't stop you from creating an account using a fake name or a nickname, but we really think there are some great reasons to sign up using your real name. The main one is that we want moms to feel like they can trust each other and that starts with honesty. If you're nervous about sharing too much too soon, you can always use an initial in place of your last name.

How much does Mom Meet Mom cost to use?

Currently, there is no cost associated with creating a Mom Meet Mom account - we offer a single service tier available free to all members. In the future, we may roll out a second and third tier of service with more benefits like ad-free site access, a blogging platform, and/or identity verification that will be available to members who pay a monthly or yearly subscription fee.

What if there are no matches in my area?

Uh oh! You've filled in your profile but it looks like there aren't any matches in your area. Yet. Believe it when we say that we're doing everything we can to spread the word about Mom Meet Mom so that every mom, everywhere, gets tons of matches. Until then, Mom Meet Mom is a great place to create the ultimate virtual support network. Remember, you can always edit your profile and check the box that says 'include non-local matches' to generate a list of moms we think you-ll like who just happen to live a little - or a lot - farther away.

Is meeting moms online safe?

Millions of American adults use the Internet to make friends and meet new people, and it's now considered no big deal to connect with online acquaintances in real life. Statistically, meeting people via the web is extremely safe! That said, we recommend using common sense. Anyone you meet on the web is still a stranger, so you should always take the same precautions as you would when meeting a stranger on the street. Take your time scheduling coffee dates or playdates, don't share too much all at once, and trust your intuition.

Why should I sign up for Mom Meet Mom?

No matter who you are, how many kids you have, or what your schedule looks like, you can meet mom friends who understand that sometimes getting together, even just for a quick cup of coffee, isn't always easy. And making friends as an adult is hard even before you add kids to the mix - a Mom Meet Mom account not only helps you meet local moms, but also saves you time. It works like a dating site, but with a twist. We match moms with potential mom friends without all the stress of chatting up mothers on the playground or the expense of moms' group dues. Mom Meet Mom takes the stress out of "mom dating" because when you let us help you meet local moms, you only connect with the moms in your area who are open to making new friends.

Why are you asking me about race, income, and sexual preference? Are these questions used for matching?

The short answer is no, we don't use demographic information when we match you with local moms. And we want to stress that if any question in the profile survey makes you uncomfortable or you'd simply prefer not to answer, you can skip it! So why are we asking about these topics in particular? First, because your answers help us make Mom Meet Mom better. Knowing what kind of moms use Mom Meet Mom lets us tailor support features and advertising to better meet your needs and the needs of the community as a whole. Second, we compile anonymous statistical data about moms - NEVER EVER personal information about any one person or family - into reports that are of interest to marketers, journalists, authors, and other people who want to know more about mothers.

Are my forum posts public?

Yes, posts and comments made in our Forum can be viewed by anyone, not just moms logged into the site. But only moms who have signed up for Mom Meet Mom and logged in can respond to posts. If you're concerned about safety and privacy, just be careful about how much personal information you reveal in posts and comments.

I'm not in the US - can I still use Mom Meet Mom?

Right now, Mom Meet Mom works best in the US and Canada because the site was initially designed to help members in those countries meet local moms. But we're working hard behind the scenes to optimize the site for moms in other countries, too. If you're excited to meet moms near you, hop on our mailing list and we'll let you know as soon as we open up Mom Meet Mom to your part of the world!
