Divorced - recovered and hoping to help.
If you are nervous about leaving DD alone with someone, have the babysitter come over while you are there (pay for their time, of course) and be a "mother's helper" for a few hours.
Now... what to do?
Self defense class
Home improvement classes at Home Depot
Crafting classes at Michael's or other craft stores
Join a book club
Check out Meet up groups
See a movie
Go to the library
Try new restaurants
Browse the mall
If there is a university near you check their schedule for interesting speakers
Check out your local Chamber of Commerce website (and those in towns around you) for events
Get your friends together for paint night www.paintnite.com
Where I live there is a lot of snow. There is night skiing at a slope an hour from my house.
