Hi everyone, I am Linda. I am a single mom. Anyone else been a single mom for over a year on here? It's really taxing on me and I feel really alone and hurt His father is still completely out of the picture and doesn't want to meet him and I still haven't even found someone I live next to really talk to about this. So happy I have my friends on here but it's just getting exhausting being alone.

Hi Linda. Hope you are in best of your spirits now. I feel you buddy. Being a single parent can be hard. Especially if the father is not even remotely concerned with the child. But I have to tell you, You are no less of a super hero, bringing up your son all by yourself. I truly admire that. I know it is hard. No one can deny this fact. But you've got to stay strong. For yourself and for your son. You are going to be his role model, I'm sure you'll be a good one. About the times, when you feel alone, You should definitely try and find somebody who is in a similar position. Look out for any single mothers clubs in your vicinity. Try and interact with mothers when you take your son to a park or anywhere outside. Build a support system for yourself. Lets be honest we all need other people, even if it is just for moral support. If you cant do any of the above, search for online forums for single parents. You'll find plenty. I wish you all the very best to you and your son. Once again I want to remind you that you are doing a great job!

Single moms are superheroes! They have super powers! I was raised by one. You are a tough person and its ok to be exhausted at times. Your family and friends are there for you.

I can feel it, better try to find other single moms to share your experience and pain. Only person in situation similar to yours knows how you feel now.

Yes! it is very difficult to manage both office and house simultaneously when you're alone in nurturing your kids. I have two boys. None does any house chores. Say I have to do their backpack as well. I too took some online advice from a website mmks.com. I found some help there. Now, what I'm doing is leaving the work as long as they don't perform themselves and have started assigning them duties giving them the sake of my knee arthritis. It is easy to make a girl learn some work. But boys. We don't teach them not to help, we actually show them by our extra help.
I saw nice discussion was going on.. ! Thanks got some info here.

Hi Linda,

As it seems you want a relationship, have you tried dating apps.
