Trying to start again

Since splitting from my husband I have been in a state of limbo.  I went through the shock and tears and the horrendous despair of losing the man I loved.  I then started to emerge from the grief, yes that is what it feels like, the loss of a relationship does feel like a death.  Part of you yearns for the past, the default setting, when you felt safe.  But slowly over time I knew that, that was the wrong thing to do.  So I decided I needed to move on.  I am still friendly with him, for our son’s sake but as far as us, we both know that it's over.

So what now?  I am loving having my independence and living on my own, in my very own place.  But I still miss that something.  I love being a mum and would never change that but I am also a woman and I want something more in my life.  Hell, you can do a lot on your own, but having a hand to hold or someone to share things with just makes it nicer somehow.  So what can a single woman with a child and a busy work life do to meet someone?  Well, it’s the digital age, so dating websites.

So here I go I will give dating sites ago.  So watch this space I don't think it will be a smooth ride.  But worth a try.
