    Nice knowing I’m not the only one 😁 I was starting to wonder, I feel like what if I have lost all ability to hold a conversation πŸ€”πŸ˜† Also wondering what everyone does to pass the time? I’ve spent so many evenings on Netflix that I think I might’ve watched everything πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚

    Hi there 😊

    I’m always happy to chat … I get how hard it can be (especially over this last year!).

    Hi πŸ™‚

    I’m sorry to hear that, the silver lining is that you and your kids are far away from someone abusive and that he can never hurt you in any way again.

    I’m only a message away if you ever fancy a chat πŸ™‚

    Stay strong xx

    My only advice is concentrate on being the best dad you can be to your son and take care of yourself. You’ll meet someone when the time is right … I wouldn’t rush it … there’s more important things in life πŸ˜€

    P.S if anyone doesn’t want to be with you because you have a son then they’re not worth wasting time on! 😁

    He sounds like a normal 5 year old to me. She sounds a bit petty … who ignores a kid over something like that?! If it was me I’d have left, she’s saying his behaviour will only get worse but I think it’s hers that will over time.

    Haha … The thing is though that you will always be seen as super mum to your child πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ₯°

    I hope your first appointment goes well and that everything is ok … I’m sure it will be 😊

    Exciting (if not a little scary!) Times!! πŸ˜€

    P.S … Almost everyone feels all different emotions and has all different thoughts when they find out they’re expecting regardless of their situation but I can almost guarantee that your maternal instincts kick in and everything works out and falls into place πŸ™‚πŸ˜˜

    Hi Amy πŸ™‚

    From what you’ve wrote it really sounds like you want to keep your baby but are scared at the prospect of doing it mainly on your own as a first time mum which is completely normal and understandable. Don’t let other peoples thoughts and opinions put you off though … From my own experience you’ll be fine and everything will be ok πŸ™‚

    Sending hugs xx

    Hi πŸ™‚

    I’m in North East Lincolnshire, I don’t really have many friends either. I’m a single mum to a 16 year old and an 8 year old πŸ™‚

    I’m guessing at 40 I’m quite a bit older so not sure if I’m too old to have things in common with or anything lol but I’m about if you want to chat or anything πŸ™‚

    I wasn’t sure if it was just me, I’ve also been a good sleeper then over the last couple of weeks my sleep is all over the place lol.

    Thank you both for the tips πŸ™‚

    Yea it’s nice to chat to people who are experiencing the same things so understand. I don’t know any single parents in ‘real life’! The only real chance I have to meet/make friends is the school run but I’ve found most already have their groups of friends and, at the minute, there’s no school run for us anyway.

    My children are 16 and 8Β and I’ve been single for around 8 years. I’ve dated but nothing has ever really come of it other than disasters lol. My kids are close and they’re both protective of each other but have pretty different interests with there being an age gap!

    I never expected so many single parents would be experiencing the same kind of things … I’ve always thought it was just me!

    I’m not sure many people on here would be from my area … I’m in North East Lincolnshire. Where is everyone else?

    I’m the same, always bend over backwards to help people out but seem to get dropped or walked all over in the process … it’s left me finding it hard to make friends and I feel out of practice to be honest about what to talk about etc. Lol. Seemed easier when I was younger, harder as an adult lol. I actually found a couple of the people I classed as friends judged me for being a single parent of 2 which wasn’t very nice.

    I found this coronavirus situation hard to start with, was constantly worrying but I’ve eased into it now. I agree that it would be nice to meet up with people other than my family members with the distancing.

    How are you finding it? How many children do you have? And how old? If you don’t mind me asking πŸ™‚ xx

    You’re not on your own! I went through a very tough break up and watched as all my friends slowly disappeared … the only people who stuck by me and helped me were my parents, brother and nan.
