Im a single mum of 2 kids and I live in a rural community. I love being single and ive recently gone back to study but the loneliness is becoming suffocating at times. I don't have a huge friend base and those I do have are all married with young kids. when I am kid free I have no one to socialise with and its really getting me down. I am craving a social life and to meet new people but I just don't get the opportunity and i have some social anxiety which means making new friends is not easy. anyone else in the same boat?
