Hi, I’m 35 and a mom to 2 children aged 5 and 8. I’ve been single on and off for over 2 years. I’ve tried to start new relationships but it doesn’t work because I don’t think I’m quite ready yet. I become a bit needy and dependant on that person for company and support. I work nights at the weekend when the kids are with their dad. But as I’ve been reading the forum I guess I’m like a lot of other single parents that are at a bit of a loss during school hours and sometimes the loneliness hits on the evenings. I keep myself busy during the day, go to the gym and visit family and currently looking for another part time job. So I was looking to see if there was any single parents in the same position as me close by where we can maybe chat and meet up for coffee/lunch. Looking to hopefully find new friends 🙂
Your post struck a real cord. I’m I’m about an hour from you, so not really close..but not too far moved here seven months ago and am struggling a bit. Because of awful split I moved without a job. Have gone from fall time work to doing g not a lot right now..although have some openings. Like you I feel so lonely when the kids are at school. They are 11 and 7. I also feel like I just need someone and have even thought about going back to abusive ex.
It’s good that you have family close. I try to go to the gym and keep busy but find it hard to motivate myself sometimes. Would love to have people around who I can chat too or people in a similar position. Drop me alone if you would like to chat
