    I’m very newly separated for my husband, I have 3 children. Boy 13, girl 10 & 2nd boy 7. I’m not worried about doing everything myself, as I have been for the last few years. But it’s the loneliness, I don’t have many friends and find it hard making new friends. I’m not able to go out and meet people as I’m at university studying to be a nurse and I tend to need babysitters for placements instead of going out.
    what I’m trying to say is how do single mums find new friends, I also in my 30’s.

    Do you bubble with another family you trust?  If so, you could swap babysitting for each other for free. Or there are lots of online meetups for single parents on and and even Facebook, hopefully you’ll find some in your area. Just keep on trying!

    In my early 40s, full time dad to an 8 year old, always really me that did everything so being full tine is ok, but jeez, it makes dating a bit difficult to say the least 😂😂

    I’m in the same position 2 months separated with 3 kids 7 and under.

    My life is just work, chores and kids at the moment with no support. Still trying to get my husband to help out as I have no one. He’s only seen the kids once for a couple of hours since he left.


    Still trying to figure it all out here

    Dating! What’s that again?

    We are currently double bubbling with another family (allowed under new restrictions 🤷🏼‍♀️) and we do look after each other’s kids during the day, but it won’t be a problem in the evening. So this is a possibility.
    i did join meet up but it’s a mind field of different groups, and when I finally found groups I like,  it’s during the my working hours. I take my hat off to you piscesmum, 3 under 7 must be hard going.
