why I am asking is...I never got to go out for my 21st birthday...and I haven't really been to partys and stuff. I mean, I am really taking responsibility to raising my child...but I wish I could go out and go to clubs and stuff.

If anyone knows what I mean.

I have never really gone to clubs or anything. But, even at 45 I do wish I had more opportunities to do stuff on my own. I married at 20 and we went overseas. I settled right down to married life and children. I've never really taken that opportunity to be my own person and it will be several years before that happens. My youngest is 10. I totally get what you mean.

I agree with you. I wish I could have traveled and went to college and all that BY MYSELF. I can travel with my child, and go to college now, but its so not the same.

I was 27 when I had my first child (29 with the 2nd) I feel trpped at home now as a single person because I don't live near family and dont want to always ask friends to watch the kids so I can "go out"....I would like to have a socail life and meet someone new but it doen't look to be happenening unless they are in boy scouts because of how active I am with our pack.

I am (well will be on Friday). I have four children, two are young adults and then 16 and 14. We are moving to an apartment on Friday...I'm looking forward to it, but feel terrible for my children. I stayed as long as I could...

Gosh, I need a hug.

I am a single parent. Found out, in June, DH was cheating. He was at the womans house and I went there and confronted him and beat the mess out of him. Blacked his eye and busted his lip. He went home and got his things and moved out. After I talked to him, he said he had been seeing her "off and on" for about a year. He has been living with her since, and will not sign divorce papers. I don't really have the money to file on my own or pursue it, so I'm just taking it day by day. We have a 17 yo DD and she hasn't spoken to him and does not want to. She graduates this year also. We just bought a house and now I may lose it. He and the wh*r3 live about 8 blocks from where I live and I have to pass the house every morning taking DD to school. Last week, the two of them were coming out of the house together, smiling and talking. It made me soooo sick. I was a wreck the rest of the day, I'm fine as long as I don't see him/her. Out of sight out of mind, it's true!! Thanks for this thread.
