    Hi I’m a single mum, and at times I feel very alone and would love to have some adult conversation.

    I live near didcot. Would anyone like to meet up over the summer hoils. My daughter is 10 . So if possible that sort of age range. If not it’s not a problem .thanks

    Hi Tracy,

    I don’t live a million miles away in Andover. I have a 2 year old son and work full time so may not be quite what you are after to keep you occupied over the summer holidays but I’m happy to chat if you need some adult conversation.

    Cheers

    Hi Tracy, i’m divorced and have a 10 year old son for the six weeks holiday.  Would be good to chat to other parents and possibly picnic/park/bike ride with the children.  Would be good to chat with an adult too.  I am in SE London.

    Hi Joanne,

    Nothing has happened so far (as far as I know 😂). I also drive. I have a 2 year old son so bit of a difference in age with our children but I’d still be interested in meeting fellow parents. Happy to take suggestions on locations for a meet up. I would guess Oxford area or Surrey somewhere would be half way ish depending which way you go. I’m in Andover. We’ll have to see if we get any more interest.

    Oh my sons used to race bmx and Andover was one of their regional tracks as well as Bournemouth and gosport so I know the m3 motorway very well lol.

    Is there anything or anywhere in particular you want to take your son?

    I really don’t mind driving, I’m used to it so I’m not worried where.

    im free most days and evenings during the week, weekends are touch and go depending on my sons dad and what he wants to do but I can just walk out the door anytime without notice if that helps and yes hopefully we can get some more interest

    I know the original post was about meeting up over the holidays. I actually work full time although have the last week of August off over the holidays. I have my son about half the time. Evenings could be OK although he does go to bed about 8pm normally so could be a bit restricted. Weekends are OK although I have him every other weekend. I guess I’m fairly new to this site and being a single parent in general (living separately since March) so not sure how it all works. I’d be open to meeting people even when I don’t have my son but appreciate if parents did have children with them that they may think who is this random guy on his own 😂. Plus when I have my son I realise a 2 year old may want to do different things to an older child but maybe I need people to say its fine and not worry about these things, just go with the flow and meet up with people from here regardless. I have a cousin who lives St Albans way so am also quite familiar with the M3, M25.

    No one would judge you for not having your son with you lol I think we all appreciate us single parents need adult company too with or without our children so I’d say go with the flow and don’t worry about it 😂 I’m fairly new on here too.

    I have my son full time. His dad takes him out for a couple of hours every Wednesday and I normally end up going with them lol but we don’t really have any set days/times we arrange it between ourselves what we want to do so if you want to meet without children that’s fine by me as he can stay with his dad anytime. Be great to get to know people

    even though my son is 8 he’s quite happy to do anything with anyone any age and I need him off his Xbox lol.

    I’m more than happy to meet up with or without children. It would definitely be good to meet some other single parents as meeting new people never seems easy in day to day life. I have my son the next 2 weekends as my ex is on holiday one weekend as it is usually alternate. So weekends are probably best with my son or I’m free just myself Monday or Wednesday evenings and am happy driving and generally stay up quite late so no issues getting back early. I could probably get a baby sitter for a Friday night also if needed. So whatever works best for you. Feel free to pm me and we can sort something out.

    Cheers

    Hi Adam & Joanne, I’m up for meeting and chat with adults. I can bring my 10 years old son too. I also drive so it can be our day trip:) I am self employed and have him for six weeks holiday and can take any day off work! I just need to ensure bills are paid when due:) Take care, guys! 🙂

    Hi lc2018

    that would be great.

    Adam and I have been arranging it for Monday evening but at the moment it’s without children, your more than welcome to join us. We haven’t made definite arrangements yet though as to where abouts and I need to sort a babysitter out but would also definitely love to do something with the kids too.

    i have an 8 year old son who is getting bored now so anytime during the school holidays is good for me.

    Hi Joanne, Monday evening is doable and maybe more meeting with the children another time.  Just a suggestion, since we’re all driving, maybe somewhere Slough (ish) area as it’s sort of half way point for us all and close to the M25 so easier to drive?

    Yes, day out is good to get my son off Fortnite/Roblox!
