how long have you been single?

I've been divorced just over 1 year. I currently am not dating and don't have a boyfriend. I still feel new to being single, after almost 10 years of marriage. I have a lot of mixed emotions and I feel like I have to go through a lot of this crap alone. It be nice to hear others experiences.
thanks, tami

I've been divorced for a little more than 2 years. I have not dated anyone seriously yet. I feel lonely alot of the time, especially when my daughter is visiting her dad in another state. Don't get me wrong, I love my daughter to pieces but I'm CRAVING some male attention (if you know what I mean! Click here to enlarge)

I feel like been single for 8 years. Click here to enlarge: I try to forget. I had two short relationships in that time, but not serious. And not the type where the other person helped with my children.

I have been divorced for 2 months now, but basically single for nearly 2 years. I am so fucking lonely. I love my boys, but at 5 and almost 2, they don't always provide the most stimulating conversation.

I hate it right now and I am throwing myself a huge pity party. I am soooo sad and lonely and it truly, truly sucks.

fuck.

hey elmo, i hope you are feeling better today. I really do know how you feel. The holidays were really hard for me, and it seemed like none of my friends really understood or cared. That was a hard time. But it gets better. Hang in there.

New here to the single moms club.

Ive been single for 2 years now and am semi happy. My son is with his fater in another state for the summer so that sucks. I hate coming home to this empty house every night. I dated a guy for a year but it didn't work out so here I am back single again.

Hello, so glad there is a single moms forum on here!

I have been single for about a year and a half. The SOB and I broke up when I was 3 months preggo and he disappeared the end of Oct of last year. The last time I saw him was when my son was 2 months old. It's sad really.

I haven't really dated. I have lots of guy friends but my confidence level is about at a -50 right now, so that's not helping me. lol. Although I have enjoyed flirting with guys, having a real relationship would be nice.

New here and new to being single.
My douchebag husband of 12 years walked out two weeks before our son's first birthday and ONE DAY after my father was in a fatal car crash. It was four month ago today.
I can't even fathom being with someone new after all that time. But I'm happy to say that I am finally at the point where I honestly wouldn't take that piece of crap back. I sold everything and moved to another state with the baby.

I have been single since I have been 13 weeks pregnant my ex my daughters father left then. He hasn't contacted me since . His parents stay in touch with me so that they can get up dates on their grand daughter. I have plenty of support from my family and his parents so its all good. My daughter is 10 months old now and doesn't know or call ne one daddy . I know that some day I will meet someone but for now its just us girls which has been nice.
