I've been trying to find a good babysitter through some online babysitting agencies, but I'm starting to feel like these agencies are not what they say they are. I know that in order to have access to the full profile of these sitters I have to pay for the services, however, I just can't afford to pay on a monthly basis. I have no social life and I really want to start meeting and hanging with new people, but I am having no luck with finding a trustworthy person to babysit for me. It's been 3 years since I've been out for adult fun and I would like to know where I can find a good sitter. I would really appreciate some info about this situation. Thanks.
I would call the Red Cross, they have a babysitter class. Also the Y or Boys and Girls Club may have some leads as well Girl Scout councils and Church's. Also call the local collages and post something on campus. Don't forget to ask for referances. GL I will doing the same soon.

It's very hard. I put an ad in my local paper that comes out once a week. I stated how many kids I have and how much I can pay an hour. I've gotten dozens of calls. Mostly from high school students, usually their mom calls to make sure my ad is legitimate, which makes me feel good. Some called acted interested and I spoke to them several times on the phone, and they they ended up being a no show, which is very annoying. However I've met a few that I really feel good about.
