    Hi, new to the forum and wondered if anyone was more local than 3 hours away!  I’m near Hemel, in Hertfordshire.

    I’m 39, newly single mum of 3 girls (20, 13 and 9) after my 24 year relationship has gone tits up and my husband said he doesnt love me anymore and left.

    I have very few friends, more people I chat to on the school run really but no real friends or support. Would love to make new friends, but seems impossible as an adult! Feeling alone, overwhelmed and lost.

    Thanks for reading

    Also in Hertfordshire.

    Separated after 20 years of marriage. Mum of one. Also newly single.  Feels weird to say but in reality I’ve been single for a long time as husband never really supportive – practically or emotionally.

    I’m feeling the same. Loneliness made worse during Lockdown.

    Happy to chat if you’d like to.

    Hi All

    I’m Michelle one of the Moderators here.  Really good to see you here posting.  I’m not sure what it’s like with travel for you but, there is a Gingerbread group based in St Albans.  I’ve added details below:

    St Albans Friendship Group – Gingerbread

    If that’s a bit of a distance for you, you could consider starting a Gingerbread group in your local area.  You can find out more about doing that here:

    Set up a group – Gingerbread

    I hope that’s helpful

    Kind regards

    Hi, haven’t logged in to gingerbread for ever. Life has been so busy. So sorry.
    please send me a chat if you are lonely since single. I now work full time, came out of the worst violent relationship, with no self esteem or self worth, few friends, but loved and supported my boys on my own. Happy to hear from if you  need a chat, it’s a long road to recovery and very hard, but worth it when you get there.
