DH left me November 30.  I was devastated. and had no idea how I was going to figure life out as a single parent once again.  (My daughter is not his, thank God)  Anyways, I had a really rough couple of months, financially, emotionally and mentally.  It took about a month for me to pull myself back together.  our divorce was final March 6th and I had the most awesome sense of freedom.  Like I had a new chance at life.  The middle of February, I got income taxes back and was able to pay off more bills than I expected so I'm actually at a point where I can live well within my means and still be comfortable while giving DD all she needs and some of what she wants. In the meantime, I started to become closer friends with a guy I've known about two years and we are now dating.  We're taking it very slow, he knows what I went through in my marriage and neither of us wants to screw this up.  He is amazing.  Respectful, kind, helpful, funny, sweet, responsible....everything I would have asked for if I had thought it was possible.  I truly feel on top of the world, and have for a couple of months now.  I have been blessed beyond imagination.

 

Anyways, no question here, just wanted to give some hope to other single moms that life will get better.  Just work with what you have and do the absolute best you can with it!  Good luck to all of you!

Good for you sister, you earned it. Just remember to keep you eyes wide open and pay attention to everything this new guy says and more importantly DOES. I am not trying to be a downer, just want you to be careful. I hope he proves to be everything he seems to be. I couldn't be happier for you...enjoy every minute of it.
