Lots of threads since Xmas about feeling lonely both socially, romantically and also in parenting.

I've been reading them because am in the same boat really.

So, I am going to comprise a spreadsheet list and be your companion agency for those that want.

If thread is successful can make more of this, coordinate contact details if you like whatever, but for now:

Hobbgoblin: 35, 4 DC aged 1 to 11, Hertfordshire, looking for parent friends for linking up and doing DC related stuff, and ladies for the odd Tequila night.

Please add your names

Are any of the Herts/essex people anywhere near Stortford? I'm a bit stuck to the local area as I don't drive!

hobbgoblin Sun 09-Jan-11 00:31:18

I'm about 30 miles/50 mins away sjm but do drive.

If we don't get closer matches then could always arrange a central meet up in each area if people want to.
