    Hi all,

    Hoping to find some friendly folk who would be interested in chatting/meeting up in the North East? I live in Gateshead, I’m a single mum of one (age 10) and I work full time so can be really hard finding time to meet new people.

    I don’t want to wither away the remaining years watching others out there having fun! I really need to make a conscious effort this year to broaden my social networks and would love to meet up with others who maybe also feel a little left behind…

    Hopefully there will be a few people around the local areas 🙂

    i don’t live near you but have you tried

    they have an app that’s good as well. There  is probably a met up group near where you live?

    I’m in Northumberland and work in Newcastle. I’ve got one aged 7 and one 1, it’s so difficult getting out! Let me know if you want to meet up or just chat 🙂

    Thanks for the replies. Thanks for the suggestion alan. I had looked at meet however seems to be very adult focused and nothing really available/set up as yet for families which was a little disheartening.

    Jess, thanks for your response. I’m sure you’re kept busy with two young ones! We could look to meet up maybe at a soft play or park perhaps? Do you want to private message me and we can discuss further?

    Morning all, Justine from gingerbread here.  Its good to see you all chatting and sharing information.  Don’t forget that at Gingerbread we have friendship groups that cover all over the UK.  Have a look at the website and see if there is a group in your area.  If there isn’t, why not set up your own group?  I will be happy to support you with this.  Here is the link…

    Good luck with the search.  Justine
