I have been divorced 2 yrs, I moved out of the family home 18 months ago. Instead of dealing with what’s happened I have been keeping myself distracted by going back to college, setting up my new home and even started dating. All of my friends are still married and I feel like I don’t fit in anymore with my social circle.It just reminds me of what I have lost which makes me so sad.
Now I have to work full time, so I feel like all I do is work and look after my children, my world as it used to be has shrunk to the people I see at work and my children. (My family live in London so I can feel quite alone in the Midlands).
Anyway, keeping positive I would love to make a new friends who can relate to my new way of life. I’m up for a walk, a run? Coffee or a G&T.
Friends who just need to have a giggle and can support each other because being a single parent is hard!
Great! I’m in Rotherham, looking to move over to Nottingham/Mansfield/Derby. I’m over most weekends with or without kids looking at areas. Iv a job interview on the 7th but have my cleaning business in Yorkshire to drip feed.
Plucking courage to take children out of school and fresh start. If you have any advice on that?
A fresh start sounds great, children are very adaptable, you should go for it.
Mine would love a puppy but I got them kittens as a compromise 🙂
I would love to be able to move closer to my family but my children are in senior school now, my youngest about to start next Sept I live very near my ex’s family, and they love their grandparents and cousins so I’ve made the decision to wait until they’re older to move away.
I’m childfree every Friday night and every other weekend if you want to get together next time you’re there. I live near loughborough, so further south to nottingham than you
My friend has recently moved to Loughborough! I visited her in the summer it’s lovely and was an option for me ☺.
She is also a single mum there is a chance you could know her ☺.
Kittens were a lovely idea.
It’s a massive commitment to stick around until they are adults I take my hat off to you!
It’s scarey but a must I don’t know where to go for the best it’s unknown to me so socialising is the only way. I’m not happy with my life somthing is missing and can’t settle anymore. I working towards a new circle of friends, I want a partner an extended family, career, a good authentic life x
