I felt this one a lot. I was a single mom to 3 kids after two toxic relationships and I was so lonely. I joined a dating site just for people to talk to. I wasn’t looking for sex, just someone who cared to see how my day went. I did find that person and I feel lucky that I did.
However, it is so hard for me to understand why he even cared. After being and afterthought for so long, it was hard to imagine why a person would care how my day went.
I was sick this week and he took care of me. That was the strangest feeling in the world. Nobody has ever taken care of me.
Sorry for rambling. I just wanted to say I 100% know how you feel. My boyfriend is pretty much my one and only friend. Motherhood itself is lonely. If you need someone to vent to, I’m a good listener!
