This is my regular church, I knew lots of people and the associates try so hard to make everyone welcome. But I couldn't finish my pudding because I had to go off and sob.
I always put on a happy, busy, person juggling work & kids on my own and in control face, and most of the time I am that person but today I just feel so so sad and lonely sad

Citronella, you were just having 'one of those' moments.

Church folk can IMHO give off that 'aren't we soo happy in our coupledom' vibe, that even regular couples feel lacking/lonely

Are you happy being single or do would you like to meet someone?

Didn't want you to be left hanging...

Thanks Campingqueen, I'd wandered off thinking this would just disappear into unanswered messages.

I think it's me rather than them.

I'm quite happy being single (after a difficult marriage)but I just wish I had someone sometimes to share things with. A Friday in night with a bottle of wine, shopping etc. I feel like I am becoming a bit invisible as a woman/person and am just seen as DCs' mum. Maybe its my own fault because when people ask me "how are you?" I will always say "fine really busy".

Sometimes think I need a gay best friend.
