hi ladies, i'm wondering if "single parents" means that a lot of folks on here are pregnant and single... like i am? i know i shouldn't be ashamed, but for some reason i am, a little bit... and the idea of this being a safe place to talk about all this stuff is really great.
but, i guess i'm wondering, is this more of a board for people who were married when they got pregnant and only split up later? i got pregnant basically single, with a man who was my best friend and long-distance "boyfriend," but we had no real promises of commitment as he lives 3000 miles away (in new jersey), and i live in california, and neither of us wants to move, at all... we are trying to figure out what to do but it's really hard since we weren't committed before. add the fact that he just told me last week he's decided to "try" to get back together with his ex-girlfriend (really? lovely timing!)... i am feeling a lot of anxiety and fear, and i think i need support. no, i know i do. none of my friends have gone through anything like this, the ones who have had kids or are pregnant are all happily married.
if this board isn't exactly geared for my situation, does anyone have any suggestions of boards that might be better for me? thanks
