Divorced... separated... widowed... never married - Are holidays easier/harder when you're single/a single GP?

8 posts in this topic

With Independence Day coming up tomorrow, I'm wondering... Whether you're divorced, widowed, separated or have simply never married (and are currently unattached), how does that impact your holidays, if at all. Do you find it's easier, perhaps, b/c you get to decide on your own what to do for such holidays as July 4 (even if it's just stay home and relax)? Or harder b/c you feel more comfortable going places/celebrating w/ a partner? Or ??

I'm ok with going solo whenever or wherever. I'm rather solitary by nature, so going on my own schedule works well.

I wish I could get comfortable going alone. Just hasn't happened. On holidays everything is about my dil's family. My daughter and family aren't close so I'm always on my own.It gets depressing. I don't even decorate anymore.

@BestBaba - Welcome back, again! Sorry about your lonely holidays and your, apparently, strained relations with your daughter and her family (if I'm reading that correctly). (((Hugs!)))

My relationship with my daughter is not strained. We just don't live close enough. I'm hoping to move closer to her family if I can afford it. Thank you for concern.

Thank you homeygfunk for your care and concern. I've tried joining different groups on Meet-up but so often they aren't within one hour of me. Bty: For those unfamiliar with meetup, they are an organization of groups with similar interests.

I know what you mean about meet-up. I get their emails but have yet to find a group that I can get to.
