We PCSed from Fort Hood to here over a year ago. I had so many friend being in the military myself, the same friends i had before i joined and the ones i made when i got out. Now, I've been here over a year, I work a good job and I've yet to meet anyone that is decent! I'm just looking for someone that i can have lunch dates with, shopping buddy, and play dates!!!! I just had so many friends and to go over a whole year without any, it's starting to make me feel like i'm a victim of socialism.lol lol

We'll at least you seem to stay busy as far as doing things you enjoy and importantly being a Mom to your Son. The way i see it if people and those including your so called friends'' can't understand your day to day life, then maybe they shouldn't be included on what goes on in your life. Our children are our priority #1 and it is very sad to say that some can't and wont' see it like that.

My non-mommy ex-bestie didn't seem to understand that because my son is hearing-impaired get a lot more attention from me because I try to work with him throughout the day. We've been friends for almost 7/8 years. However she is always comparing me with her new bestie (also a stay-at-home mommy) and tells me you don't talk to me anymore, we don't hang out, etc. I get angry because the situation is different. I try to talk but when I don't have money to go out and my conversations are not exciting enough I'm honestly like wtf. I can say I've tried. I tried being interesting in nail art, music, tv series etc, but jeez I don't know how her other mommy friend does it, I just have that sort of time between my son and school (and now job searching).

When i became a Mom i was very young but just that, I became a Mom so a lot of my priorities changed. I still was able to have fun. You know my friends and i would have a night out, whether it was watching a movie together or having dinner and gossiping lol yes ladies, i am not ashamed to admit lol jk:) but then a few years passed and i ended up not really feeling comfortable about it anymore. It was nice to have a little time yet i felt the break wasn't needed because i felt guilty not being there. Even if the boys were asleep and just eventually my friends started to dissapear we'll at least the ones that thought they'd never have to grow up and the ones that weren't Mothers and didn't understand the meaning of getting up early, you know BEING A GOOD MOM:) Plus, the way i look at it. they weren't good friends anyways

where r u? i live near ft knox, im not in the millitary but my brothers and their wives are, i will be your buddy! : ) I am a working mom and i know what it's like to feel isolated. Before I had my baby I used to have so many ppl I could hang out with, now it's like they're avoiding me because we don't have anything in common anymore....the ones i can hang out with aren't exactly people whose lifestyles correspond with mine, so I choose not to hang with them......

Lol! I know how you feel! I am not in the military but I often ask what happened to all the decent friends in the world. Before my son I had many, but after I became a mom poof! (Most of my old friends don't have kids of their own)
