Hi im new to gingerbread and my name is CJ and im 21 and i live in Hampshire.
I have a 19 month old daughter and i have sadly always been a single parent to her. Recently i have really struggled with loneliness and find nights in my flat when my daughter is sleeping really difficult and lonely, im not sure what else to write on here if im honest but i just want too meet up and have some friends who may understand circumstances. I don’t have any friends apart from one who i have known since i was 5 years old but she isn’t a parent or sadly local to me anymore.
I think my local Group is in Guildford and im hoping to go there soon to meet some people.
Please reach out to me if you are in a similar situation, its a shame gingerbread doesn’t have an app!
I’ve frequently been left alone with the children unable to do anything … my wife out enjoying herself. Not the same but close enough to your situation. Lonely and wondering how it arrive at this.
Just be strong , your reaching out which is perfect. We’re social creatures and need company to function correctly. Some people need more than others, and sometimes we need a boost. Talking really helps
Happy to talk to either of you anytime just drop a PM. It can definitely be a lonely process initially especially late at night. Sometimes does help to talk even if UT’s on a forum. There are many great people on here as well as the staff who are always helpful.
