     I’m a single mum of two kids, I’ve been single for 4 months now after six year relationship. After going through a hard break up I pushed my friends away and now lonely. It’s hard to admit to myself but I actually have no friends and at 24 it’s a awful thing. I find it hard to make friends so after losing mine feel like I’m always going to be stuck in the house with the kids and a ex that messes them around picks them up when he feels like it after us making arrangements. What do I do I’m fed up I’m lonely I’m upset…

    Same here,

    i have two kids , 2 and 8 months. I’ve been on my own for a year now. I was only with their dad 2.5 years and pregnant with my second when we split.

    Thankfully my ex and I have finally come to an agrangement that suits us both. I am hoping to get a part time job soon also.

    It’s the loneliest thing in the world x

    I feel the same and have just come across this site and joined the members so very new to this. 46 no friends or family, very lonely. 2 daughters 18 and 12 they don’t do anything together at all. It’s largely me and the youngest all the time. I’m very lonely and after work. We’re on my own with the tv and my youngest is on her iPad to occupy her mostly. My daughter doesn’t have friends near where we live so I feel for her too. We are with each other so much conversation dries up. There are no groups near me I live in West Yorkshire. Everything costs money and my wage/tax creds pays the bills with little left afterwards. I am grateful when she goes to her dads as he can occupy her for a weekend. Then I just sit with the telly or walk the dog but it’s incredibly lonely.

    Ditto!… This time of year is not great when you are on your own, it is hard to remain positive.  I have limited childcare options so am housebound every night, can get very lonely.  Doesn’t seem to be much out there for people in our position to meet like-minded people.  🙁

    I am a single dad of 5 children between the ages of 3 and 12. My wife walked out last October after 15 years of marriage, she was away for a month and had several affairs, before returning to the UK and telling me and the children we were splitting up, because she had met someone else. She has since started a new life in Italy and shares her time between Italy and the UK.  I have had all five children every day and night since October and do the school run, dentist, drs, etc whilst my ex wife complains that she can’t cope with the children anymore, hence the reason for her leaving.  I have been on long term sick to care for the children and I am exhausted after such long days and often go to bed about 9pm once the children are asleep as I’m to tired to do anything else and I get lonely of a night and miss a decent conversation.

    If there are any other single parents on this forum in the Merseyside area, it would be good to chat.

    Im a mum of 1 and pregnant now with my second and recently became a single parent again. It certainly is lonely as a single parent, and particularly at this time of year.

    Hi Rich

    Sorry to hear that you get no support from your ex and family hope you don’t mind me asking why doesn’t your ex want to have contact do you know?? It’s hard being a single parent it’s been exactly a year for me now but it’s had some advantages for me it has made me a much stronger person and improved my confidence with the children I do things and take them places on my own now whereas before I stayed away from crowds and only really took boys out with my ex because I used to feel I couldn’t do it on my own but when your a single parent you make yourself do alot more. I know what you mean with the evenings I think its made me abit boring because rather than sit on my own for hours I go to bed earlier and lay looking on my phone!

    My wife and i seperated in june 2014 due to her adultery and the kids have been in my care since.she is a very selfish individual and only thinks of herself and whoever she is seeing.she has had a lot of different partners since seperation and she treats the kids like an inconvenience.

    I know that feeling only too well I divorced my ex for adultery and although he still sees the boys it is very much when it suits him and if something else comes up that’s more important everytime than seeing the boys. I get so frustrated that they can do this to there children because one day they will see them for who they really are.
