Filling in my profile took about 15 minutes and was fairly straightforward, although I was slightly flummoxed by the bio section. Am I a "c-section sista," a "baby-led weaner" or a "routine parent"?

Personal Space

All of the above, sort of, but why would I want to hang out with other women based on such unremarkable characteristics? In the end, I describe myself as a "gentle parent" who enjoys "eating out" and "chatting," which makes me sound tragically dull. Creating a Peanut profile, by comparison, is even simpler.

In an effort to present my best self, I describe myself as a "world-travelling bookworm fitness freak. Then I get to do what I've been waiting for, which is check out the other moms.

I agonize over whether to "match" with her but ultimately have an attack of shyness and decide to check back later. Peanut is less fruitful. The app is oddly buggy. It keeps freezing up and I have to delete and download it twice. There aren't many moms in my area on it and the ones that are all look like they might judge me for letting my nine-month-old watch TV.

In the end, I match with no one. A week later, I delete both apps from my phone to free up memory space. It's likely both apps will survive for a few years if only as a valuable exercise in data-collection. But I suspect both apps will ultimately fail — while Tinder for mothers might work, it's not for the sort of mothers who actually need it, like me.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to push a stroller while listening to a podcast. This is a space where subscribers can engage with each other and Globe staff. Non-subscribers can read and sort comments but will not be able to engage with them in any way.
