HI all,

I am 27 year old women from pune, a single mother to a 10 months old baby boy.

being a single mom is very difficult task in india, we have to work, earn, look after the kid, help him grow as a good human being and much more.....

i would like to know if there are any genuiene groups of single mom / single dad in pune so that we can make friends and share our expireneces and probably could live better life.

anyone who  agree with my thoughts can revert back.

only condition is the people joining the group should be genuiene ( no fake and dating profiles plz.)

Best Regards,

hi tina, this is yogesh, i am also very new to this site , its been 2 months or may be a little more here in this forum. i tried making friends here but the problem is people are not sure or uncertain about the person they speak to or network with. i am presently in chennai and do travel a lot to  mumbai and pune for work. it would be nice to get to know single parents and make genuine friends. being a single dad to talk to single parents especially if they are single moms  there is always that doubt on the minds of the person on the other side. initially i thought as i was new to the city , i could make friends and so cld my daughter  but i think people especially when its a guy, i mean a single father its difficult to just make friends.............. thats how our society is ......... any wayz i have a daughter and stay in chennai for work would be nice to be friends.................. am not from pune ..... but  we can always share our views ..... take care

regards yogesh.........

Hi Yogesh,

nice to see your response.

i would definetly like to share the thoughts with genuiene friends like you.

initiallay we can share our views &probably discuss things here.

as you mentioned about yourself being a single dad, i can understand what all challenges you must be facing.. while raising your daughter

what do you do? old is your daughter? and also share something about how do you raise your daughter single handedly?..i guess i can also learn to cope up with things and raise my kid in a good way.

hi tina very encouraging to see u reply back, i am doing it all single handedly and finding it very difficult. i get help from my parents but not always they stay in a different city. i have a duaghter , i have admitted her to play school here and slowly we both are trying to adapt not only to the new place  but also to our life . i am a senior manager in a automobile manufacturing unit here in chennai.  i tried making new friends here in chennai. but as i told u people have all kinds of notion about a guy approaching single mothers ...... but its the way our society is , she is 2.5 yr old. i dont know how i am gonna do all the things myself....... i just pray god to give me strength to carry on. can i ask u why r u single............ if u dont want to dont answer.......  so what do u do tina?...... do u have help from family.................... it will be nice to speak to you...................... i know its premature to exchange number , but it would be great to talk in person. i do visit pune for work  very often. do write in and thank u again for ur encouraging reply.

regards yogesh

Hi all,

sorry for the late reply, its nice to see ur response on my post, i still feel there are good people in this world.

After going through this Agony of being single parent i had started feeling as if every bad thing happened to only me in life..which i feel is not true.

Thanks all for being my friend and also for your great support!

my son will now turn 2 this september, he has started speaking now, i really cherish his development, his speech and his love for me :)

But i still have many questions on my mind, like how will i cope with his questions when he will ask me about his dad..this really makes me scare ata times.

i would request all my dear friends to help me out with the same, If you people have some good suggestions for me.

@ Yogesh- Great to know that you are doing good, hope your daughter is doing great too..blessings to her.

Thanks to all

Hi Deeps02,

I am a single father with 5 yrs old kid. I am also in the same cradle of handling both kid and job. My main concern is about him asking for other kids for playing. I can hide my loniless but not sure how to ask the kid.

Please let me know if we can communicate atleast by phone to start with.

I am a single mom of a 2 year old girl from Bangalore. I am glad to have found a place where I connect with people going through the same phase in life and share the good and bad things in life.

Apart from all the other things I feel I am missing out a lot in her life as I have to go and work and get very little time to be with her, well at least compared to other mom's who stay at home.

 Former member 2011-10-28 12:51:20


Hi Rohini, Thats true,Bt  i think any single mother has to handle this thing to meet out the financial responsibilties. Its true dat d child misses...Ur daughter is 2 years now...I think u vl feel btr once u get her admitted to a playschul...She vl be a completely changed baby with a busy schedule n of course a lot more isssues to deal with!!!!

I m happy that v r here togeather n can discuss our problems.

Hi everyone,

I'm a single parent of a 4 year old girl and working in Bangalore.

Like Deeps02 said, I'm looking for a place where I can just speak to others who are also single parents like me.

Is anyone here from Bangalore who would be interested in forming a local group? 




RK1981 2012-10-23 11:09:19



I reside in Bangalore and am a working single mom of a 3 year old boy. Been going through the posts here as well as those in several other forums for the last couple of years just to assure myself that there are many like me and my kid and that we are not alone in this. What I have realised in these years is that single parenting seems like a challenging task only when we ourselves perceive it that way. But once we learn to deal with it, it does seem like a cake walk. When I put my child in day care when he was about a year old, I was comsumed by guilt. But today I'm content that he's a happy chirpy kid growing up in a social environment where he has playmates all day. Even if its a few hours in the evening that you get with your child, just make the most of it. Those of you dealing with this alone with no family support... if your finances permit, then hire a domestic help for cleaning and cooking. Trust me... that makes a huge difference...

Ofcourse we do have our handicaps... the occasional worries of dealing with our kids' questions on their missing parent... our own questions .... would my child live with a complex when mingling with other kids from two parent families... our own social void... the absence of a spouse and not having friends to hang out with on weekends... not being able to head out for vacations when we badly need those breaks... If its these handicaps that bother you, then I believe that a social network of such parents and their children could be a solution. Unable to find such a group in Bangalore, I've created a new group in yahoogroups - Bangalore - Single Parents Meetup Group. If you are single parent residing in Bangalore, please join in and lets discuss on how to build this network.

Best Regards,

 hi rk nice to see ur post i am s single dadbof a baby girl would be nice to join the group


singleparentpune 2013-01-06 12:52:53


Hello  All,

I m from Pune. Have 2 kids, 16 and 9. Really face difficult situation when my children ask me why our dad doesn't love us like other kids. 

My main concern is to have like minded people ; who despite of lacking support in our life; want to  develope their children in as best ways as possible. 

I want my children to learn to develop a good , healthy and true friendship which is not based on belongings , social stauts and monetory criterias. 

Like to read from you all.



poonamc 2013-01-06 14:50:36
