Im finally at the going out as a singleton and mingling stage. Finally.
After coming out of a refuge, getting through debts, rebuilding my life and ensuring my kids are safe I finally feel ready to ‘socialise’.
I’m petrified. I don’t know why. Well I do but…..
When I left the refuge I recieved malicious phone calls from men asking me if I wanted work in the sex industry. I then experienced breaking and entering. I worked with the police and mental health services and now have cameras and alarms.
So I’ve had a few dates now and saw a lad for a year.
I’m now on a local singles site and looking forward to mingling but theres this back of the mind thing.
My kids. The phone calls. The breaking and entering.
You have to trust someone before putting your guard up, right???
But I don’t want to end up in the gutter and I DON’T want anything bad to happen to my children. I feel like I’m walking on egg shells with s heart of hard yoke, a bit soft and gooey in the middle.
Anyone else started reassociating after lockdown???
Has any of the Gingerbread groups started up again???
