    How does anyone find time to meet new people when they are a single parent

    Why does anyone want to – frankly I’m not going through all that rubbish again. I love my kids, I don’t have room for anyone else anymore.

    Joining local single parent groups and making contact with other, local single parents can be of much benefit when it comes to sharing some of the care to make time to do things for yourself and move on with your life.

    Fully agree. When I have come home from work, made my daughter her lunch and ironed her clothes for school the next day, I am shattered. But saying that, I do feel a loneliness even with all the amazing love and support my daughter gives me, there is still something missing.

    Thanks for the positive replies. I think being a single parent can be very lonely. I dont think there is anything wrong with wanting to meet new people

    Exactly, everyone is different . I do everything for my child and I go to work but I want to meet people too.  Children grow up and have their own friends and hobbies eventually. I’ve done online dating and met people for coffee and lunch and it was great fun & fitted it in on my day off when my little one was at nursery.  Honestly just go with the flow, as you don’t have to answer to anyone and put up with negative comments on here!

    I would love to be able to socialise with people but I don’t know where to start. I joined online dating, the place I met my ex but not having much luck. Of course I love my baby but I feel lonely and isolated
