How things change.
This time last year I was travelling with my ds to meet my dp and his daughter for ice skating, Christmas market, dinner out, time away. Feb last year I found out I was pregnant, March/April lost the baby. July split and now last month I found out he is with new partner and has moved on.
Its been hard and I'm still getting to grips with it all.. I'm not over him, although I'm a lot better than I was. Not sure what I'm wanting here, just to get it out I guess.. I feel the whole experience has been quite traumatic...
hopefully new year, new start. I really hope I can trust again..

Feel for you flowers
I was getting ready for our wedding mid Jan.
Which was v nice.
But moved into separate houses in Sept and still trying to work it out - unless he stops being a drunken dick, this is unlikely.
Onwards and upwards OP

Oh coffee that's tough. This time last year I had a houseful. ExP had just moved away no notice leaving me with severely autistic 17 yr old. DD and DGS living here too. They've all moved out now (DS into supported living which hasn't gone smoothly). I have to sell my house fast. This time next year I intend to be in a much better place - and you will too OP flowers

This time last year we had just finished bowling and Pizza Hut. Dp, my dc and his dc. Assumed it Would continue like this weekends and eventually we would move in together. Then dp ex turned into a massive witch and fucked with the contact until dp was pretty much broken. We moved in together in April and for the most part dp and I plus my dc are very happy together but now i haven't seen my dsd for a year.

This time last year I'd moved back to my hometown after my marriage ended, new start so very happy to be me again.

1 year later after entering into a new relationship, I am now 6 months pregnant with my exes baby....who left me without actually telling me.

Another new year, not quite me at the minute but il get there eventually.

This time last year my husband and I had just got back from a short break away - another of many attempts to fix our relationship. I knew at that point he was having an affair - just didn't want to admit it to myself.

Now a year on I am in a new relationship with someone who loves me and treats me so well. I've moved, and am in the process of divorcing.

It's been a tough time but you will be surprised at how Strong you can be when you have to. - and how much better things can actually be when the dust settles and you get rid of the bad things in your life.

I wish you luck and a much happier 2017 x

This time last year I had been happily married for 14 years, two lovely kids 11 and 8, nice house, good jobs etc
In August my delightful stbexh dropped the bombshell that he was leaving me as he didn't feel the cane about me any more and hadn't for a while.
Turns out the ow I was suspicious of was the ow.
It has been a tough few months but I am so strong as a result and my amazing kids have been my rock.
2017 will be better.

Hope 2017 is a better year for us all..
I had a notification on fb showing this time last year -a picture of my ds with exP dd..
He has moved on far quicker than me. Sometimes it is easy to think you're alone in your

This time last year I had been single for a decade. I had given up hope of meeting anyone. I had a good friend who I had feelings for but I was very dismissive and awful to him because of how I felt.

I have just had the most wonderful Christmas and new year with him. I love him through and through as I have done for years and I know I will marry him. I have a DD from a previous encounter and seeing them interact together makes my heart sing.

I would never, ever have dreamt in a million years this would happen and thinking about it takes my breath away!

Orlando, you give me so much hope!
7 weeks in from splitting with baby's father & my life seems like there is no future at all!

Reading your post honestly gives me butterflies that maybe one day I will be happy! I only hope I won't be 36 by the time that actually happens! flowers

Orlandointhewilderness Wed 04-Jan-17 17:57:43

There is a future!
It certainly can happen. I am now 33 and thought I would be alone for ever.
A close female relative split from her husband of 25 years. She found someone online when she was 50 and they have been together 9 years now. Have faith!

This time last year I had been single for mostly 8 years and thinking I was going to be alone forever.
Fast forward to this year I met my amazing DP 10 months ago and just spent a wonderful Christmas and New year with him and my DC. Never did I think I could be so happy smile
