@JonathanAndTwoBoys sounds excellent! Look forward to sampling your cooking too. I’m flexible with dates as a solo parent. When were people thinking of?29 April 2021 at 11:34 pm #53562
I’m in love the idea of camping/glamping/ yurt/hotels. A short break with kids be fantastic. Or a London meet up. Thanks @lalaland and @Jonathanandtwoboys.29 April 2021 at 2:46 pm #53540
This is an excellent idea and one that I was considering doing too. But I’m based in Herts and not looking to move to Edinburgh. Wishing you best of luck in your search. It makes complete sense to me. Like a mini community.29 April 2021 at 2:35 pm #53533
Jaekae put your photo up, it would be lovely to put a face to the chat. And yes do your Cilla magic . I havnt said much but following the conversation. I have given up with online dating …. its vile, horrendous and far too painful. Having a brilliant time now doing the things my daughter and I enjoy the most and joined a few single parent groups for meet ups and holidays. It seems a far natural process and definitely more likely to meet someone special that not only shares interests and hobbies but who also completely understands what its like to work around childcare priorities for example.
So were off to climb Snowdon in June with a group of single parents and children. Cant wait.
Does gingerbread facilitate anything like this? I’m fairly new to gingerbread and have been lurking for ages. Just popping my head up for air… please be kind.29 April 2021 at 2:25 pm #53527
Can’t see your profile photo? The irony… lol.11 April 2021 at 11:03 pm #52699
I could do a London meet up because its central and time is tight otherwise. Onaya, I completely get where you’re coming from. And evan then I may may bail out as far too difficult at times. Racingred0, I get it. Life is great, but it does get lonely and at times so nice to see people face to face. Friends rather than dates for me right now. I have also joined a single parent travel group on Facebook and look forward to some camping events this summer.9 April 2021 at 5:35 pm #52605
I’m in Hertfordshire, would love to meet up in park or zoo or similar with my 8 year old. We are back st school on 12th so maybe a weekend or next holidays.8 April 2021 at 10:19 pm #52535
Let’s keep it positive agreed lalaland. What will be will be….8 April 2021 at 9:00 pm #52531
Its a total nightmare! I’ve almost given up. Never enough time or energy and blokes that seem to just not have any real compassion. I’ve now decided to join a few single parent groups and socials and if I meet someone that would be great.
I do think as others have said that friendship is a really good starting point but I haven’t dated anyone yet that agrees. No patience and not prepared to wait and see what develops.
I think I’m a lot less tolerant now and have many interests to occupy my time. Sorry no answers but just find dating a nightmare especially at the moment.7 February 2021 at 4:40 pm #49217
