Single/happy/then the wine

Hi all.

Been happily single for a few years, don't get lonely. Miss my gorgeous DC's at the weekend but make the best of my time alone.

So when I have 1 glass of wine why do I start feeling all insecure and lonely? LOL. I suppose alcohol is a depressant isn't it.

At least I've got Come Dine with Me to watch!

I'm with you OP! Currently sat feeling tipsy and a bit sad and lonely after one glass too!

Put your music on and sing with the wine op!

That's because you've only had one.

I find it seems to matter less after the second...

Hi fellow singleodians!

But I'm a lightweight, I can't handle two!!

I always start texting people I've not contacted for a few years, and then wonder why I don't get replies....

Dustbunnies, are you normally happy single? And where does that name come from, do you dust your bunnies regularly?!

Don't have the wine smile.

That's common sense isn't it category?!

Haha loveyou that made me actually laugh! It's from a song smile

Normally I'm fine, I've been separated from DD's dad for about a year and I do have the odd wobble but it does tend to be when she's at his and I decide to treat myself to a glass of wine! I think it's because I'm at home alone and not out with friends. Maybe that's where we're going wrong?

Step away from the phone music more wine will help

Oh? Never heard of that!!

But would you want to go out? I'm old and can't be arsed! Late 30's.

I've sobered up now....

It sounds like a cup of tea is what you need right now!

Going out is a nice idea in theory but in reality it's just too much effort!

loveyoutothemoon Sun 30-Apr-17 19:52:27

I don't drink tea in the evening, I'd be on the loo all night!

I'm the same, finding something to squeeze into, getting depressed that I can't wear a tight fitting dress anymore and the hangovers- feels like I'm on deaths door!

I'll abuse my body with junk food instead tonight!
