I’m a 39-year-old single mum. My daughter’s dad left us when she was a baby.
I keep going day-to-day but I’m lonely. I’ve got myself into a deep, dark hole.
I don’t leave the house or integrate socially. I used to go to the gym but I feel I’ve let myself go.
My family say I’m fine but I think they say that to make me feel good.
I’d like to meet someone who is loving, kind and respectful.
DEIDRE SAYS: There are lots of parents like you who are looking for friendship and love again.
Start by following up any special interests you have. The gym can be a social hub and the internet is a great place to find out what’s going on locally. Check out meetup.com.
My e-leaflet Social Life For Single Parents has lots of suggestions to help you, too.
