Hi Sam I certainly know how you feel.. I’ve just separated from my husband after 25 years and im finding it so hard being on my own. We have 4 children, 3 of them now live away from home and my youngest is 11. I moved from the family home and it’s all just a mess. Coming from a family home with kids living at home, and now it’s just myself and my son. I really hope it gets better for you and you find some groups to meet people as it’s not nice being on your own.
That’s why I joined here. I’m 45 and never felt so alone xx xx5 November 2019 at 1:05 am #32520
The loneliness is crushing, I know. I’m pregnant and alone with my second and terrified. Wish their was more support groups out there5 November 2019 at 11:03 am #32545
Me too! God I’m so lonely it’s absolutely crippling sometimes. I’m really trying to embrace it but it’s so difficult not to think you’ll always be alone. My son only goes to his dad’s once a month so I have to try and make sure I have plans on that weekend but every other weekend it’s so so lonely. I feel crushed by the sadness sometimes 😔
Sorry no advice just a big fat me too x5 November 2019 at 9:29 pm #32587
How are you doing? Have you managed to get to the gym yet?! Also have you found anyone to meet with where you live? I’ve met a single dad in my town through Gingerbread & hope to meet another mum this weekend which is cool
Hope things are getting better for you

I was feeling like you but instead of waiting for the old, build on the new it’s exciting meet loads of people, if in doubt talk about them people love talking about themselves ☺.
Then clean house/ ironing and watch friends drinking coffee laying on settee all day on Sunday 😂. I love it xx6 November 2019 at 4:49 pm #32623
Feeling lonely sucks!
It’s evolved over the years, when my lad was small I’d put him to bed in the early evening and then spent a few hours at a total loss with what to do with myself, I just felt so alone and miserable. I think the worst times were when we went on little holidays away to caravan parks, the days were fine as id make sure we had loads to do but going back to the caravan park was awful, we would go into the clubhouse for a while but seeing all the happy families was pure torture, we would then leave to go to the caravan, he would go to bed while I sat quietly reading listening to the distant sound of folk having fun back at the clubhouse….terrible.
It’s far different now, my boy is 13 so pretty much independent, if I want to pop into my local which is 5 mins walk away to socialise it’s fine, the boy would rather be home playing on his computer. Its a village pub where we all know one another so I’m not lonely for people any more. I am lonely in a sense that I want to share my life with a girl, I have had a few relationships over the years but havnt had a proper relationship for nearly 4 years which I find difficult but it’s not the cutting edge painful feelings of lonileness that I once felt, it’s more that I don’t feel complete, most of the time I’m fine but I do dread going to bed and waking up without that special someone next to me, in fact I find all the boring everyday things in life like shopping hard without the other half.
I guess what I have learnt though is that nothing stays the same and that includes feelings, that feeling of lonileness changes and for me it’s gotten easier so thinking that you’ll always feel a particular way forever is wrong.
