I'm scared of moving on after splitting from emotionally abusive husband

DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER splitting up with my emotionally abusive husband four years ago, I’ve been too scared to move on.

We have three children together but since the split he’s done nothing but make my life a living hell.

He dragged me through the courts, wrote abusive letters and slandered my name to my family and friends.

I don’t want history to repeat itself, but I’ve also been left worrying that nobody else would want to date me anyway.

I’ve just started a new job but feel like my life is just work, kids and housework.

At 37, I feel I need and deserve more, but I’m stuck.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are bound to be wary but not all men are abusers.

There are lots of parents like you who are looking for love again.

Life is very restricted for now but things will ease up as more people are vaccinated and coronavirus cases come down.

Until then, the internet is a great place to find out what’s going on locally.

Check out meetup.com. My e-leaflet, Social Life For Single Parents, has lots of suggestions to help.
