    I recently split from my daughters Dad, she’s 2, he’s already living with his new gf and her 3 kids. I’m trying so hard to stay strong right now but he seriously gets under my skin and makes me so angry!!! I’ve spent the last month crying and now I feel a bit stronger but it’s so bloody hard especially when my baby asks where daddy is 😩

    Hi Charley,

    Sorry to hear that, it’s very hard at first. How long has it been?

    My ex left and immediately was with another women, who I knew. it was quite a while before I felt more or less back to myself. Even now 1.5yrs on things can annoy me if I choose to let them. But I just honestly think life is too short to be miserable. You don’t feel like you will be happy again but you will!

    I remember those feelings, the utter sadness. But you will feel better as time goes on xx

    Thank you xx he’s been gone about 7 weeks now but he’s also been dragging me into their relationship from the start saying how awful it is (she actually punched him 2 weeks ago) and how he wants to come back home and loves me. I stupidly let him and he was here for 1 night but then left me to go back to her. Now he’s just ignoring me and doesn’t even ask about our daughter. He is poison, everybody tells me I’m so much better without him and I know that but I can’t help but still feel a little bit of love for him.

    I know how you feel. 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, drs, dentist, dress, etc whilst my ex wife complains that she can’t cope with the children anymore, hence the reason for her leaving.

    She comes and sees the children but will not spend a reasonable amount of time with them as she can’t cope with them. I feel like each time she goes away, the children are upset and then when she has gone they settle down and then once she returns the whole cycle starts again. Each time if feel like I’m moving on, she comes back and all the old feelings come back again. I wish I could just have a clean break from her.
