As a sometimes ill-equipped but always devoted single parent to his two adolescent daughters, Grace and Natalie, Wade is taking the major step of dating again. His supportive and compassionate best friends, Forrest and his wife, Delia, and Ben and his wife, Michelle, are thrilled he's resurfaced and enthusiastically offer to help set up his online profile.
When Wade's friends encourage him to join a support group for partners who have lost a spouse to help him deal with his anger, Wade's shocked by the advice he's given by the host of the support group, Caroline.
When Wade changes the password to his online dating profile because his friends become too involved, Forrest goes to great lengths to keep tabs on him; Grace and Natalie are torn when a show they watched with their mom returns for a new season.
When Grace gets the lead in the school musical, Wade realizes that the teachers are giving her special treatment after he hears her sing; Michelle and Ben persuade Delia and Forrest to volunteer for snack bar duty at a school function.
