    Hello

    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 🙂

    Hi Jen,

    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?

    Hi Melissa

    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 .

    Hi Jen,

    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 🙂 xx

    Hi Melissa

    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.

    Hi Mellymel

    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 👍

    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 😂😂😂
