As the title suggests, I’m feeling pretty isolated and struggling with having no friends.

As a result, I found myself googling “how to make some friends”. Sad, I know, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

I’ve been single for two and a half years and I’ve got a two year old daughter who I have full custody of.

Although my daughter sees her dad every fortnight for 12 hours, I spend most of my time looking after her and don’t get any child free nights.

It’s exhausting, but also very isolating. I only have a couple of friends but can’t see them often as they have their own busy lives.

The isolation is driving me mad and I just want to make some friends, or to at least have someone who cares.

I also dream of meeting someone and falling in love, but who would want an ugly, fat chick with a broken history of trauma and insecurity.

I’m exhausted. I’m alone. I need a break. I wish I had friends.

As a parent, I may never be alone.. But I’m lonely as hell.
