    I’m a 29 year old, single mummy to 3 little ones – a 4 year old and twin 1 year olds. Their Dad and I co-parent quite well, so I’m lucky there. But it also means I have a lot of time Friday to Sunday to fill. I’m autistic and have long term depression, and lost  a lot of my friends when I had kids and didn’t want to go out and party all the time.. I get a lot of anxiety going out meeting new people, so currently spend a lot of time on the computer, gaming and chatting.

    Anyone else out there that lives the single parent struggle and spends time online and wants to be friends? After getting to know people, I might be more up for meeting down the line – I’m in the East Midlands.

    Feel free to message me if you’re up for a friendship ^^

    Hi Red,

    I’ve been a single mum for eight years now. My son is 11. I work full time but on here fairly frequently.

    I’m on the spectrum but coping ok at the moment. Nice to hear from you.

    My son is at his dad’s this week so I’m decorating 😓    And gardening !

    Hi Kathy!

    11! I can’t even imagine when my kids are that age. I have a feeling they’re all going to be outgoing, crazy kids.

    Have you been single the whole 8 years?

    What decorating do you need to do? I moved in June, and still haven’t unpacked properly! Just so much work with the kids I don’t have chance

    It’s different, that’s for sure. I know how to adjust v-brakes and play MineCraft. And I can still beat him at chess, just. 😊

    No, not exactly single for 8 years but a friendship with someone who would rather my son was elsewhere didn’t work. Two years since.

    I’m doing the last bits to Zac’s new room. He decided he wanted a bigger room for Xmas & I’ve changed things around. So paintwork and bookshelves, and one of those multi-picture frames with snaps of all his mates from primary school that he doesn’t see as much now.

    It took me about 5 years to unpack so you’re doing fine. K

    I am a newly single mum of a 2 year old girl.

    I am struggling with depressive moods. Had two major depression episodes – the last one after my baby girl was born and I believe that this is one of the main reasons my husband left two months ago.

    I was copying somehow thinking we might work things out and maybe be together again. But yesterday he told me he definitely wants a divorce and I have almost lost myself! I suppose subconsciously I believed that we will be together after all.

    At the moment he is coming to see her once a week – after he told me he does not love me anymore I moved to my sister’s house 2 hrs from where he lives.

    I do not have much time to myself but I definitely need friends right now.

    I am  not an outgoing person who shines in social situations and always had problem with finding friends so to be honest internet chatting is the best start for me!

    Hi all. I dont mind being an online friend to chat too if you want to add me.

    My children are 13. 11 and 7. I get a lot of anxiety when meeting new people or going out too.

    And im depressed most of the time not sure if thats due to my medication or being married lol. If you read my bio you will understand .
