Oxfordshire!?! where are the single parents?
« on: May 07, 2013, 06:07:04 PM »
Hi my son (9) and I would love to find new friends to meet up with in the Oxfordshire area. All my friends are now in relationships so weekends for us can get a bit samey. Is there anyone else out there in this situation too? If so it would be lovely to hear from you, Best wishes, Natalie

Hi Natalie,

I am near central Oxford with my tomboy aged six.  She is into Ben 10 & the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Wii / Nintendo and karate & fighting with sticks in the garden although I suppose it is doubtful that a 9 yr old boy will want to play with a 6 year old girl whatever she is into!

Hi Kendra
thanks for your response! I cant see anyone from Oxfordshire on this forum so i was beginning to wonder if I was the only single parent around. Have you met up with anyone else through this site and do any day trips/ meet ups ever get advertised for our area?
We are based in Witney and Victor is quite used to ( and I think secretly prefers ) being surrounded by girls!
Best Wishes,
Natalie

The half-term camp is on your door-step.

Hi Natalie,

There are people on the forum from Oxfordshire (BigRedDog springs to mind) and I've both met up with quite a few and gone on lots of meet-up's, trips and holidays.

Re WT4's post, I would definitely go to the half-term camp if I were you - you will never look back.  It is so near to us and they have a great climbing centre there that we go to regularly.

Most of the people who go on SWK trips are not on the forum but you will usually meet a handful that are and esp on camping trips, quite a few are.

We probably can't make that camp as my daughter is down to spend time with her dad then but I swear to you, people will be friendly and welcoming - you just need to feel the fear and do it anyway...

Regarding a local meet-up, I am always happy to meet up (private msg me if you are a member) but I suggest that you pick a date, time & venue and just post it up on the forum.

When I first came on to the forum, what really made friendships for us very quickly was going on a short SWK trip.

Best, Kendra
