I am in my forties newly single with 2 children (10 and 14)
Just wondering if anyone of similar age in the area who would like to meet up. All my friends are married and don’t really understand the sadness and loneliness. Don’t get me wrong I love my own company but would like to meet up with others. (The local group meets in the daytime when I work)
I’m pleased to see you are making posts here. The forum is filled with loads of great parents who will be able to empathise with your situation. I hope its not too long before you start chatting. Sometimes it helps to comment on other threads that may be relevant.
In the meantime have a look at our groups page. Wen have Gingerbread groups which run across England and Wales. You will be able to search to see if there is a group local to you.
Hi,Have you thought of Kyra the women’s centre? They have some groups on evenings or occasional weekends. ie. singing, shared poetry lunches. Unfortunately, no kids allowed. Local gingerbread group is fantastic though if you ever have a Thurs morning off work…check beforehand as sometimes not running in the holidays, and they are also planning a few trips out on other days.
I am recent single, have two boys aged 4 and 19 months. I am also looking for people in the York area who have kid free days at the weekends. Looking for people who want to meet for coffee / lunch / drinks and a natter. I work full time so attending groups isnt possible.
