I wouldn't recommend single childless ladies. I would look for responsible and mature single moms who want to do things together with the kids like go to the park.


Also, if your kids go to school look for moms at the school whose kids play with your child. See if your town has a free mommy and me or play group. Sometimes they are run through the board of education, adult education or the park and rec department.

have you tried meet up.com to find local groups in your area? I know for my area there are groups for all kinks of moms. Stay at home mom groups, working mom groups, military spouses, single moms. You will likely find some things there.

Also, go to the library and usually the doctors office has them too and look for local parenting activities magazines. I know there is one for our area that lists all kinds of great free things to do.

Your local library probably has a story time or something where you can hook into the local community of moms and get recommendations from them of other local activities. If you are a Stay at home mom ask your husband if any of his collegues have wives who are home that might have some recommendations for you. You might not want to get too chummy with the work wives for political reasons but they might be able to point you to some activities.

If you are a working mom try to make pals with some other moms who seem similar to yourself at the daycare pick up or send home a note for a "mommy play date" with another child.

Don't be afraid to put yourself out there. when the kids are that young it is kind of lonely age for the mom because the kids need a lot of attention and they aren't really choosing friends yet. but before you know it you will have a full blown circle of moms at school and sports.

Yea it is sorta like that except I really can't go out and do single stuff. Most of my single friends that I used to hang out with are always trying to get me to dsingle stuff like going to the club and stuff like that. Plus I have my sons all the time and therefore I usually don't go anywhere unless its for the kids. :/

Even though your not a single mom it must feel like that sometimes. I have a girlfriend who calls herself the married single mom because her husband works 2 jobs and is rarely home. She actually hangs out with a lot if single moms because that is who she feels her situation is most like. Plus single moms don't have a husband they need to tend to all the time so they are looking for other moms to do things with tge kids so they are not just on their own.
