    Hi Sascha, see now you have Lego & I have to contend with superhero’s or wrestlers..!!
    I’ve been a single mom for 5 years, my little boy is 6. We too are content but I get what you mean when you say your friends have ‘family things to do’ or you may get invited on the couples nights out (well when we were all able to go out lol) but it’s not the best night when you are the singleton ! Ha!
    Adult conversation definitely does not happen much in my house either, but this seems like a nice site to meet like minded people in very similar circumstances

    Singledadlife….this is a really positive post..! It’s hard to try and stay positive at the moment with all the bad news we here and the challenges everyone is facing but you are so right, accept help where it is offered and realise that living as a single parent is a strength in itself..!
    Merry Christmas to you too 🎄

    Bazzlem….of course you will find someone who accepts and loves both you and your son…you are a package deal, if someone does not accept that then they are not worth your time and love back..!
    But firstly you have to learn to love yourself & the time you have with your wonderful boy. Then that person will come along. Leave the past behind. I have been a single mom for 5 years now….I felt so like you in the beginning & went on a few dates. But now I know the most important man in my life is my little boy…! Whoever I get into a relationship now HAS to fit into our lives & that person will come along just like they will come along for you!
    Try stay strong & positive

    Well Robsheffield I think you are doing a fab job…! I do not think you have anything to worry about, that is more than enough time to form a really strong bond..!
    Good for you..! I think you need to stop worrying, relax & enjoy your time with your boy

    I think 3-4 times a week is great, That’s 50/50. Does he have any sleep overs ?

    Hi Robsheffield. I spilt up with my sons father 5yrs ago now…my son is 5, almost 6. Of course at the beginning I felt terribly guilty – but you need to let that go!
    children are so so adaptable & resilient, my little boy once cried & said he wanted mommy & daddy to live together so I kindly explained that mommy & daddy are happier not living together – which makes things better for him! I explained families come in all shapes & sizes lol

    I told him he was very lucky to have two families!
    he is very happy, his life is filled with love, he has fun with me then fun with his dad. I am age  appropriately Truthful with him if ever he asks anything but to be honest he rarely does! It’s just the way it is

    your little one will be absolutely fine, as long as you are happy & show him lots of love then he will be happy

    Marv282….you enjoy your night out on 4th July….go even if it’s raining! Take an umbrella – can’t predict the good old British weather…!
    but whatever the weather at least you would be enjoying a pint 🍺

    It’s definitely difficult for friends who are in couples to understand…even though they say they do they don’t….unless you are in a single parent situation It’s hard to really understand

    I feel this lockdown as a single parent has been really tough.
    I’m more than happy to also chat ! X

    Marv282 I have also created sites then deleted them the next day, either on a night out with a couple of friends or after a glass of wine!
    Thank goodness I’m not the only one – it seems a few of us do this 😂

    Jsmoove I too am old fashioned, I’d definitely rather meet someone the ‘normal way’ ha

    I agree Misso…I would love to take my little boy away but I feel a bit nervous! Sometimes I think shall I just go for it & take the risk – but that thought never actually turns into reality!
    Be nice to hear if anyone has ever been on a single with kids getaway

    You definitely know how to self care then! I am a nurse so little time to relax…maybe I could ask one of the Doctors I work with to prescribe me a spa day for one! Ha

    Hope you have a great week

    Hi all, I have been a single parent now for 5yrs even though I have a few close friends they are coupled with a partner. So I definitely agree it’s hard around Christmas / New Year as Mum2aTeen wrote earlier….you never do get invited. Although if I was invited I’d probably feel a bit awkward with the couples!
    Even day events like a trip to the zoo is lovely, but I feel it would be nice in a group sometimes

    Hi all, I’ve been a single parent for 5yrs now but the very few close friends I have all have partners. So yes it’s awful around Christmas / New Year never being invited along, although if I did go along I would probably feel a little awkward with the couples!
    Even a day out to the zoo alone for instance is nice with your little one, but I always feel I’d like a bit of adult company to chat to…! Ha
