Our Tips For Making Friends as a Single Dad On Holiday

As a single dad, it is likely that one of your main priorities in life is making sure that your kids are happy. The last year has been tough for us all, but for children, it has been especially tough as they have missed out on a large chunk of their childhood from spending time indoors.

Now is the first time in a long time that the world has felt normal and so you are likely thinking of helping your children build valuable memories before they get older. Well, there is no better way to make family memories with your children than going on a family holiday.

If you look back on your own childhood, it is likely that your fondest memories are of any family holiday you went on.

If you want your children to have a great time, I would recommend heading to family holiday parks or resorts. These places tend to have a lot of entertainment for children and they are a great place for your kids to interact with other kids that are on holiday. Though family resorts are a great place for you to take your children, they can be quite intimidating when you are a single father.

At holiday resorts, it is not unusual for your kids to run off and play with other children. For most families, this is a great time for mum and dad to have some alone time and a catch-up. However, if you are a single dad you do not have someone to do this with and so when your kids are off playing you may feel quite lonely.

Just because it is you and your kids on holiday does not mean that you have to interact with them exclusively. Holidays are not just a great time for your kids to make friends, but they are also a fantastic opportunity for you to make some potential friends too.

If you are someone that has never really interacted with new people when abroad, the idea of approaching strangers may seem crazy. However, making new friends is a great way to improve any holiday and make friends for life. Here are our tips for making friends as a single dad on holiday.

Meet The Parents of Your Children’s New Friends

As stated above, it is more than likely that your children are going to make friends when they are on holiday. Kids are very social and they love to chat and meet new people. Within days of being on holiday, you will quickly notice that your children have made friends with other children and they are spending most of their time talking to them.

If your kid has been hanging out with someone for a lot of the holiday, then I would recommend trying to meet their parents. It is likely that the parents won’t stray too far from where their children are and so it will be pretty easy to work out who they are.

You can then introduce yourself and point out who your children are. If you have some small talk there is every chance that you guys will hit it off and become close friends. You could always ask them if they would like to eat dinner with your family later on in the evening and really get to know them. It is likely that they are eager to speak to someone that is not a child and so they will be happy that you have reached out to talk to them.

Speak to Dads at The Bar

At every good resort, you will find a bar where you can go and grab drinks. It is likely that when you are treating yourself to a beer you will run into another parent that is getting a drink. If you see another dad, a surefire way that you can make friends is by telling them a joke from this list of dad jokes. No dad can resist a good dad joke it is likely that they have a lot of their own that they will want to tell you.

There is no better way to start a friendship than having a good laugh together and you will probably continue your chat another time.

The 5 Best Mods for DayZ you Need to Download ASAP

The 5 Best Mods for DayZ you Need to Download ASAP

DayZ, initially released late in 2013 as a mod for the popular Arma series, is a zombie survival simulator where you attempt to survive in a postapocalyptic wasteland solo or with friends. DayZ did so well as a mod that it became a fully standalone game in 2018 meaning that just has been getting mods of its own. Unlike dayz cheats, hacks, aimbots and more than just change small elements of the base game to improve your chances at succeeding, mods can completely change the entire gameplay experience. Let’s take a look at five of the best mods for DayZ to mix up the gaming experience.

Can I get myself an animal pet?

Sometimes wandering the wasteland can get a little bit lonely. So thars why a dog companion mod seems so enticing. Download this mod and you’ll get a small puppy to follow you around the dead and monster filled zombie wasteland. Not only can you choose the breed of dog that you best like, but the dog also helps you to fight the zombies off when in a pinch, he really is man’s best friend!

What mod helps to improve trading?

Though DayZ has a lot of gameplay to offer, once you reach a certain point it can begin to become a little repetitive, that’s why mods exist, to freshen up the gameplay experience. This mod, called TraderPlus does that to great effect. This mod aims to inject the game with a whole new financial ecosystem. It adds trader NPCs across different points of the map that allow you trade items, clothing, and materials. This is a much-needed addition to the game which helps to keep the world feel a little more alive and thriving.

How do I make the game more challenging?

If you are a seasoned DayZ player then you might just need a new challenge to spice up the gameplay. Ashes of Humanity is a modded server that implements a true hardcore survival game mode. There is less ammo, less food and base building is restricted. There is also an interesting underlying story about a secret government agency during the cold war. If you want a harder challenge and an interesting element added to the DayZ lore, then this could be the mod for you.

A challenging game is great but what about fishing?

I love a good challenge as much as the next guy, but sometimes after 3 to 4 hours of wandering the bleak deserted infected wasteland you just need to kick back, relax and do some fishing. And you can with the Zeroy-FishingZ mod. Not only does this expand your fishing capabilities in DayZ but it also adds new clothing options, new fishing themed storage options and seas shore fishing which you can use to dig for shells. Now you’re fishing requirements have been met you can get back to exploring the wasteland fully rejuvenated and full of fish.

What is the absolute must have Mod?

We’ve talked about many different types of mods today but there is one mod that completely outshines them all. DayZ Expansion is a massive mod that aims to completely rebuild the game from the ground up. It fixes and improves on many issues of the base game by updating graphics and textures, improving base building mechanics, adding new items and vehicles and on top all of this allows you to completely edits major portions of the map to create and play your own built missions with your friends. It’s a truly impressive addition which makes the entire game experience ten times better.
