    Hi all.  Sorry – I’m a bit late to the party.  3 years ago, my husband of 20 years left me for a girl young enough to be his daughter.  He also left me with 3 kids – aged 6 – 10.  The dust has settled – the hurt…gone.  By now I see him for what he is – a damaged individual who will never face up to his responsibilities.  It’s not why I’m writing.  This single parent thing – it’s not hard, but it’s very very lonely.  I run a business.  I look OK for 52 – I think.  To the outside – I’m a strong, successful woman who hasn’t let the fact that her husband left affect her one iota.  The reality?  Yeh – I have an amazing work life.  I come home – I cook my kids a meal – I put the youngest to bed – I help the other two through their teenage angst.  Then I go to bed – and do the same thing …the next day.  And that’s normal family life right?  I don’t miss my husband – but I miss the idea of him.  I’ve been on Tinder.  OMG.  Might be different in the city – but here in Wales – it’s full of men who want sex, or men nobody else seem to want.  Or perhaps they don’t want me.  Well the ones I want don’t want me – put it that way.  I’ve yet to go out on a date.  I did meet a vicar on the Guardian Soulmates thing – who hummed and haad over what to do, like he was choosing a cake in a bakery, before politely deciding to pass.  Oh – and a barrister – who made me pay for my own coffee.  So if there are any North Walians out there – who are up for a chat, virtual or real, male or female, in Welsh or in English  – that would be great.

    Oh God ( sorry God, especially today) but you do have to laugh.  Like in a normal world – I would never – EVER – have gone near a vicar.  But in this weird life on your tod with 3 kids land – then it all seemed – possible…….I mean, yeh – I could do the vicars wife thing – flowers and WI – totally transform myself from the prosecco drinking sassy adopted Mancunian that I really am…….what was I thinking!

    Avoid Bumble too 😂 I’ve ‘met’ quite a few utterly insane people on there including a dominant who felt if he were to get into a ‘relationship’ with a woman with a child that the child would also have to be compliant…

    Dangerous! Online dating is depressing I find.

    🤣😂🤣😂😅😄

    I signed up to Plenty of Fish before christmas last year. I was seeing a lad for 6 months before we left it as a stale mate.

    Im taking my time on here until i enter the dark dwellings of dating apps again.

    Date in a dash do really good singles nights and i think they link up with Skiddle quite a bit if you want to cut loose 😉
