I'm so tired of going to bed alone every night.

I've been single for two years now. Just me and the kid, I'm so lonely and it's just been one of those months where I REALLY feel how alone I am. How do I cope?

  • It gets easier by the 3rd year. I used to cry myself to sleep and then I bought a big ass pillow and pretended it was my ex. lol, it gets easier. TRUST me. Sad thing is, it gets so easy that now I have no desire to deal with a snoring farting man.

  • You know, I'm not single, but I feel your pain to an extent. My husband is deployed and we have about 4 more months until he is home. Sometimes it's really hard for me to fall asleep - hence why I'm up at 2am. I would just say make sure you are getting fresh air and are around people who love you. Sometimes I cope by reading and imagining him..which I guess you could just imagine someone else. Sometimes it helps just to daydream. Good luck to you.

  • Two words: Silver bullet.

    Just kidding. (I'm sleepy, everything is funnier than it should be.) This may sound cheesy, but have you thought of adopting a puppy/dog? They're loving, always happy to see you, make good snuggle buddies, and keep your feet warm. When I divorced my first husband, I was so lonely that I couldn't stand myself. I started volunteering at my local animal shelter just to keep myself busy. (No kids at this point.) There was an amazing female APBT there, and no one would adopt her because of her breed. I'm a sucker for big goofy dogs, so I took her home. It turned out to be the best therapy I could have asked for.

    I hope you find happiness, grab it whenever you can.
