Go to Meetup.com and join a few clubs and go out with groups of friends. Try to find a Singles Support group in your area.
Go out! Meet new ppl! You need to be strong enough to go out on dates with NO strings attached! Im single by choice and im so happy now than ever! Be happy! Ur free to do as u wish! :)
Surround yourself with alot of friends and buddies to hang out with, go do things with and just be there when you need them to be!!
Go enjoy a hobby you never had time to do , or refurbish Fly Rods (this is an in joke towards me)
You could encompass hobbies, and outlets, like exercising, volunteering time with others, join other single mothers groups where you can have cook outs and movies nights, you can be apart of online groups, try your best to stay away from **** for sure, that will open a whole can a worms you don't want that will put your family at risk, that's NOT fun as some project to be.<br />
Wonders how your aging parent is doing? Since you're single, there is HOPE: http://www.cbn.com/family/DatingSingles/index.aspx?WT.svl=menu<br />
Be encouraged and if I can help, please share with me how... Thanks!!!
Watch a lot of P0rn
Go out and look for things that make you happy. You will be surprised at how many things you will see when you just stop and take a look around,<br />
Notice them, absorb them, and cherish them.
Find a hobby that you enjoy or take up a new one. Volunteer some time for a worthy cause in your area. Expand you education. Just a few ideas and things I have tried.
