I'm so sorry to hear your story, GBH!!
I'm not single with children but lots of my friends with kids meet people on Facebook, dating sites and out in public. As pp I think it's important to set boundaries too eep my friends smart and only contacts through a fake fb account lol when she meets them on dating sites probably looks sus!
I met my dp after I broke up with my ex of 5 years through fb, then we found out we actually had about 20 mutual friends we hang around with lol! Turned out my ex was virtually cheating on me anyway!
Also met a really good friend by adding him through a friend (though turns out he was in one of my lectures at uni too)
Troll through your friends friend list and add anyone who's profile looks remotely interesting or even send them a message saying hi
I think its when your not looking you find a great one. There is someone out there you'll stumble upon one day prob when you least expect it.
Just to be careful of the creepy's - if you exchange emails to message outside of the dating websites make sure you're either unsearchable or use an address not linked to your facebook.
ETA - oh and to answer - first time we met was at his work, don't discount everyday shopping events lol.
