    Hello, I am new to Gingerbread and am based in the West Midlands.

    I have 2 children and split from their Dad almost 3 years ago. Their Dad has them every other weekend and no in between.

    My youngest child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy.

    I’ve got to a point now where I’d really like to settle down and be in a committed relationship again and suffer with loneliness, but am finding it so hard. I barely have time to meet people and don’t tend to find people who want committed relationships on dating sites.

    How do people combat the loneliness when all of your friends are settled down and busy and don’t seem to have the time to spend with you?

    Hiya just wanted to reach out… As I’m the same position except  I’m not really looking for a relationship but I have a child with additional needs… They don’t have any contact currently with father, I’m exhausted and feel like I’m just existing some days
