I have looked on here and there doesn’t seem to be a Gingerbread group in Weston Super Mare – or the surrounding area – which is a shame as I’d love to meet up with other single parents near me – more in an adult capacity than with the kids. I have some lovely friends, both locally and otherwise, but none of them really understand my situation as they are all happily married. In fact most of them have never even experienced heartbreak due to being with their first loves…which is of course great, but doesn’t help me when they try and offer advice (bless them!)
It would be so lovely to make friends who are in the same position (or who have been) to share stories and offer some light relief. I don’t necessarily want to wallow for the whole meet up, so any topic of conversation is welcome 🙂
I guess my question is whether there are any other people in my area who would be interested in meeting up? If so then I’d happily set up a Gingerbread group to make it official!
I live in the WSM area and have also been looking for a group but unable to find one closer than Yate.
I am a single mum to my six year old daughter and this is my first day on the forum. I only have one single parent friend I know well and have been a bit desperate to talk to others in the same boat as me!
Thank you for your reply! I don’t have any single parent friends, so you are one ahead of me 🙂 however it’s always nice to talk to different people as everyone’s situations are unique, even if we are all united in being solo parents!
Hopefully there will be more people who would be interested in meeting up. This forum is fab and I have always found that advice has been offered up whenever I have posted anything
Happy to chat or meet if you wanted. You can send me a private message if you like xx
