Congrats on graduation, that's great!
I'm a single mom of the greatest little boy in the world, he is my heart. I graduated college may 2012 and was not able to find a job so I ended up moving back to kansas and we now live with my parents. I still haven't found a job and I'm so unsure of our future that I'm terrified. I've been with my son 24/7 for so long now that I don't even know if I can handle being away from him all day. His father claims he loves him but he calls like every three weeks or so and only sees him on major holidays. He pays minimal child support and expects me to move closer to where he lives so that his life is not interrupted ( so he doesn't have to find a new group of women to sleep with). I just don't know what to do anymore. I need some inspiration and support .

Hi Ana! I'm so sorry about your relationship not working out, but you'll do great.
Hi my name is Ana. I am in the midst of separating from my husband of 33 yrs, Its a hard transition for me as well as my children. I would like to know how to become independent and start from scratch. I am on disability but of course that isnt enough to care for me, the home and the two children that will be living with me. Can I get some advice? Hopefully I will start on the right track.

Welcome to the group! You're right about actions vs. words.
I have 33 years of experience in marriage and what I picked up is that Love is just a word. You can tell a dog you love him and the moment your landlord tells you no dog (not you per say - I mean the majority) will get rid of the dog over moving. Action speaks louder than words. Where there is love there is an action backing it up. Why do you have to make the move when you are the one caring for your and his child. Besides if the move conveniences you and your child, that is why you should not for the father's comfort.
Hi Wendy, welcome to the Single Moms group!
Hi, I'm Wendy. I have a 13 month old baby girl. I have been taking care of her completely by myself since day 1. My family does not even help me and I have a full time profession (computer programmer) which means I am extremely busy and feel like I am going to break down sometimes. I will post on the main page an issue that I need advice on.

Hello ladies! My name is Shannon and I am a single mom to three amazing children, Ella is 6, Mya is 3.5, and Cal is 2. I have been a single mom since May. I look forward to meeting and talking with you all!
I recently started blogging about being a single mom and other things that come to my heart. My goal is to encourage other single moms. Please check out my blog at www.thecsmom.blogspot.com and FB page: Celebratory Single Mom
Hi I'm Jessica. I have two kids. My 3 year old boy his name is Taylor and my 5 month old daughter Madelynne. I am a single mom.. My kids have different dads. My sons father left when I was 2 months pregnant and has only been seen a few times after that. Then my daughters dad.. We were together on and off for a year and I got pregnant and we were together for about six months of my pregnancy, I ended moving into his parents house with him, but he ended up going behind my back with a previous on again off again ex and moved out to live with her while I'm currently still living in his parents house. The whole time he has been with his ex he tells me that he still wants to be with me and that he loves me and wants to be a family. It never got passed that point though. He only sees the kids about once a month. About two days after christmas his parents told me I needed to be out by the end of this month.. So i proceeded to tell my daughters father that this was going on. So his plan was to get an apartment together because I had no where else to go and he claimed that he wanted to get back together.. Well that was at the beginning of the month. So today I get a call from him (which by the way I hadn't talked to him since he said we should get an apartment.) He starts saying how he wants to take our daughter every other weekend and decides to tell me that his girlfriend is pregnant.. Im totally heartbroken even after everything he had already done to me I still completely love him and wanted to be with him.. Which is why I'm here now on this site. I want to come on here and find people that can relate to me, and just have someone to talk to.
Hi there, I am so sorry all of this has happened to you :( I can relate a little being that my 7 month old daughters father left me when I found out I was pregnant. He wanted me to have an abortion and I refused so he left. It is a very painful and tough situation but we have to remember that WE are the ones with the blessing..which is out children. We as women are so much stronger than men...obviously you and I both got stuff with extremely weak men that cannot own up to their responsibility. I can be your person to talk to if you'd like! :) Don't let this mess break your heart, you are a strong woman and need to continue to be an amazing mother to your children...let them be your focus (which I'm sure they are). He isn't even worth your time or tears girl!
