Do you work full time? Can you go to playgrounds during the week? Have you tried the mush app?

Have you tried mush? You can connect with other mums in your area.

I’ve been a single mum for 7 years and yes it can get lonely. You have work, so can you chat to your colleagues. Do you mean no dating or no time with other mums.

I have a few friends that get me through. We skype or chat on the phone, get together occasionally, but working ft plus childcare and now homework too doesn’t leave time for much.

Time for yourself is really important so you have to schedule It and plan ahead.

Yes me definitely and I'm a stay at home mum. My ex is an alcoholic so not much support. I try and get out on my own every couple of weeks just for my sanity, most recently on online dates, but can be extremely lonely. Sometimes I feel like when is it going to be my time, when someone looks out for me but you can't dwell, there is always hope. Try and focus a little bit on yourself, self improvement, forums to chat, it all makes a difference x
