I have a 2 year old son and I'm a single mother .. I feel lonely a lot of the time .. My friends and guys that claim they're interested in me don't understand that I'm a mom and he comes first .. Lately I've disconnected myself from a lot of ppl and things bc I feel there's no point ...

I feel exactly the same apart from I'm not a single mom but often feel like it. I feel like walking out as my so called partner doesn't help with anything to do with our daughter.I find going the gym helps and I've made some new friends maybe you should have some time for you! Stay strong! Your not the only one x

Mercedes....I just separated from my 2 yr old's father as well. Along with feeling lonely we are in a custody battle...I just try to have fun with my little girl and I'm not worried about another relationship, if it comes it comes, as for friends...I dont think they understand unless they have children of their own.

Hello Mercedes I also feel lonely especially when my baby is only 10 months old and I have just relocated to sydney, with no friends and family support. I just spent lots of time with my baby and seek out mother's groups, playgroups and went to preschool activities at my local library. That way baby has social interaction and I can meet other mothers. All of my friends and guy friends are not married so that saying, I have lost a lot of friends too because they do not understand the troubles, the amount of time invested in our babies. They cannot really truly understand that we put our little ones as our main and first priority. It is true that only fellow mothers can really understand other mothers.
All the best with studies too, soon you will be busy and very preoccupied that you will not feel as lonely:)

This is very common, you are not alone! I have been a single mother to 3 kids, and it changes your life. I totally understand the loneliness. You have to be proactive and seek out other moms to be friends with, at least that's the only solution that worked for me. I do have one single friend who was loyal and would come to visit me and was supportive. Until she married, moved and had her babies! Just remember: when you feel most alone, you are NOT alone!

Hello Mercedes, I understand how you feel, I too have been where you are. I started out feeling that way until I decided to focus on my children and myself. It was hard. I just begun to enjoy myself with family and friends.

Thank you @Merlin and I'm happy that your meeting other moms ... It was harder for me when my baby was a infant but there was times when my mom let me go out with my friends bc he wasn't so much trouble .. I just usually take my son for walks around the neighborhood and to the park
