Alone and fed up of going around the same old loop

this is my first post and I’m hoping to find a friend/friends to chat to and support each other.
ive been a single mum for 6 years, run my own business , don’t have many moans as I seem to have sorted most things out. I’d just like to chat/hopefully meet up with other single parents. I’m in the Bath.
hope to hear from someone soon 🙂

You’re out of the bath now?!! 😀
I live closeish to the bath too! I moved down to Glastonbury area with my 6 yr old last year.
I don’t have much family support and my son’s father doesn’t live in UK, he’s useless at contact. I met my son’s father whilst I was travelling in South America and now I just see it as destiny to have a child, but not the relationship. In a way the lack of contact makes it easier for me but of course more difficult for my son, although he seems to be getting on without him ( I’m sure there s a sense of loss though).
I felt a bit gloomy today, not had a night out with friends for over a year, I really am missing my life!!
How are you doing today?

its chris 95 who lives in bath I am in Manchester I just commented on post as it made me giggle . I do think sometimes it’s easier when there is no contact with other partner you are not tangled up with there battles , but it also has it disadvantages too I suppose like the buck really does stop with you ☹️ Glad your son isn’t too effected as long as you have male role models for him . Kids are so strong. We all have our bad days but if we didn’t how would we know we are having good days . Look on the brighter side . Good days are yet to come . Take care .2 March 2018 at 6:56 pm #8248
Thank you for your supportive words. I got names mixed up!! Actually I don’t have many male role models for my son at present, I am quite conscious of that. But,well, we are just settling into our new area, it’s a great place so hopefully we’ll find new friends, role models and maybe more ( 😉 ) soon!
Hope Manchester us treating you well 🙂 xx2 March 2018 at 7:00 pm #8249
Hi Chris 95!
You must be out of the Bath by now..! 😉 ( I can flog a joke to an inch of it’s life!)
We are quite close to Bath, haven’t been yet, still settling to life near Glastonbury, which is pretty awesome. Whats the Bath like?! X2 March 2018 at 7:02 pm #8251
i’ve cheered up a bit now I’ve found this site!
I’ve always thought it has a negative affect on my three but I don’t think it’s as much as I thought. They’ve hinted quite a few times recently that they’re happier this way. Mine are 15, 13 and 9 though and they understand more the older they get.
I’m doing a lot better lately now their dad isn’t bothering me anymore. My problem is I turn to wine two or three nights a week when I feel anything negative. Then I don’t feel great the next day.

how random some new woman telling us she’s having a Bath 😂😂 I’m sure I’ll stop chuckling about it soon.
We are in a village just outside Bath, it’s nice but still feel a bit like the newbie. We moved here when I left the kids dad, he wouldn’t leave so I had to.
We’ve made friends with a family of three boys and my son has made quite a few friends so I’m not too concerned about his lack of male role models. I do see him deep in thought at the dads though. I think it’s more a case of ‘I wish my dad did stuff like this’ as opposed to ‘I wish I could see my dad more’
anyway, see how many lads on the TV who absolutely adore their mums because they did such a great job on their own bringing them up 👍2 March 2018 at 7:42 pm #8258
Haha Chris, thank you for cheering us up!! 😄 (Aah, the little things..)2 March 2018 at 7:58 pm #8263
I was on a dating site as ‘Bath lady’ and one message I got was ‘I prefer a shower myself’ I didn’t make the connection for a good few hours 😂😂😂
maybe I should change my profile name to Bath
what a fun introduction I’m having to gingerbread 😂 thanks you lovely people
