I am sorry to hear that op, I would ask for this thread to be moved to chat, you will hopefully get more responses there. I personally got a dog, more company and it's amazing how many people stop and talk to when you have a cute dog!
Before I got married I was a nurse and met new people all the time. After having children I changed careers and I’m now divorced. I now meet very few people and work alone. Any ideas how I can meet new people?
