Her journal posts
Mar 19, 2010
So, this is my first journal post. I'm not sure what is suppose to go here. I joined okcupid originally because a friend had asked me to so he could compare my profile to the type of woman that he would like to date. As i was filling everything out, I realized this would be the perfect opportunity for me to meet new people in my area that i have things in common with. As of right now, I have a very small group of friends. Very few of them have children so they don't seem to understand the fact that I can't just do what I want, when I want. i'm searching for people (guys, girls, gay, straight, bi) that have children. Ideally, I'd like to find friends that have children around the same age as my two kids (ages 6 and 5) so that we could all go out and do things that the kids would enjoy while maintaining some "grown-up" conversations. Hopefully, I can accomplish this successfully.
I was in a horrible, controlling, abusive marriage for 5 years. My, now, ex-husband isolated me from most of the outside world. Now that that part of my life is over with, I am ready to rejoin society. The only problem I am having is that finding healthy friendships with people that have children around the same age as mine has become a difficult task. I have tried the usual routes such as joining the PTA, taking kid friendly classes, and so on. None of which has yielded any positive outcomes.
I guess that's the end of my first journal entry. Hopefully, I didn't bum you out too much. I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that my ultimate goal will be achieved.
