    Hi Flamingo

    You will get to experience it. One day, I'm sure of it, coming on here you'll make friends.

    Hope your day is going good, when I'm having a bad day, coming here to vent & get it out makes me feel better.

    Can you join a library? They sometimes have activities you can do, to meet someone.

    Just keep on going, things will get better,

    Keep safe & its a time for hot drinks

    hi flamingo, sorry are feeling so low

    i want to hold faith for u, that things will get better.

    Those rough days re hard.

    Having companionship is something I also feel really emotional about it, to have a partner to share days with. I understnd its hard, particularly in society where everything is always about partners... its a test for me to learn to love myself and see my own worth without a partner, but a test I'm trying to meet.

    I'm so sorry ur having a hard day and hope things improve very quickly for u

    sending support,

    So true Sleepy - society places so much about what is the 'norm' and if we don't fit the mold we are somehow lesser. Whether for a partner/married with children; I find mothers day always a tough one. Not all mothers love their daughters (unfortunately is that way with mine). And yet we see all the images of how it is/should be. It hurts each and every year.

    I love how you are learning to see your worth without a partner. I will try that too. Perhaps that is something we all can try?

    HI Flamingo,

    I hope you're ok. I'm so sorry to read your really struggling and your mum is not doing well at all. Watching a loved one so sick is the hardest thing to do. But she knows you are there with her.

    I'm one of those who married young and growing up was scared about not finding someone special. I thought I did, but he's let me down a lot. I;m at the point where most days I just want to be on my own. I guess we always seem to want what we don't have.

    The right person will come along. You just need to have faith and confidence in yourself and he'll find you. But definitely try and volunteer somewhere - it will get you out of the house and with other likeminded people who will bring you out of your shell. When you find where you belong, you will be happy - and it doesn't matter if your single or not. I know we all want to be loved, but we need to find the love for ourselves too. I know you would have many great qualities, so don't be afraid to share them. Sending hugs.
