It was just me and Emily today, which happens a lot and I’m normally fine with but today I just feel really lonely.
I’m also really stressed about how I’ll cope when I go back to work. Mostly the thought of getting a strong willed baby out the door before 8am…a strong willed baby that likes a lie in and all day with her mummy. I think most parents do a tag team thing where they take it in turns to get ready while the other feeds / dresses baby.
And also how i’ll cope working nearly full time on very little sleep. And do the food, housework and laundry.
And survive financially.
Having someone to chat to every evening and just help out so I can get ready for bed would be a massive luxury.
Literally just a hug, a chat and ten minutes help would go so far to making everything feel more manageable.
My friend just got dumped and is back on online dating straight away for an ego boost. She suggested I do the same so I filled out a profile for something to pass the time. Definitely a bad idea, none of the men were as right for me as my ex so I deleted the account quickly feeling even more negative about the future as I did before.
Dating apps are sad places when you are already feeling lonely.
