Married people get lonely too! Im a SAHM and really struggling with having no family here and hardly any friends with kids. I try to meet people but most of the time they already have formed their little groups... Makes me feel a bit desperate lol I would be lost without DD... She's my little mate.
Mumsnet helped me! And developing new, easy, cheap hobbies (i.e. knitting, drawing, improving my cooking...)
I called a lot of people too. Not all the time & I tried to have different people to ring but that helped.
Then the usual toddler group, work, tv sort of combo.
It's easier now (met my DP) but I can still remember what it's like to be alone every evening & I did find it quite hard so just to say I hope you get some good suggestions and at least know there's plenty of us going through the same sort of thing
How old are your DCs? I joined lots of parent and child activity group. We have a surestart centre just down the road so they do lots and I joined music ones, swimming classes, gymnastics classes etc. I also enrolled on a PT college course to help me get that PT job and to make friends.
What about joining an exercise class? Gym? I do this during the day when kids are at nursery but some people take there kids Along to the zumba I go to, or walking groups, get a hobby- have a look in hobbycraft get some ideas on craft ? I know how lonely feels good luck with the job hunt x
I'm a single mummy of 2, currently looking for part-time work with not much luck and I'm finding myself getting extremely lonely! The only people I know in my town are my bf and his family, my bf has just got himself a full-time job and as he is the only person I see all week most weeks I'm finding myself feeling extremely lonely & isolated now that I only see him about 2 evenings a week Until I find myself a job what sort of things can I do to socialize to stop me getting so lonely? Feel like I'm gonna go mad without any adult conversations all week
