Im 21 years old a stay at home mom, and my social life has seemed to diminish slowly. Im so tired of never having a girls night out, because girls my age do not want to hang out because I have a daughter.

Make yourself a social life with other moms! Go to play groups, parks, child activities and meet other moms your age to hang out with! That way you can get a group baby sitter and have a "moms night out".

sounds exactly how i feel. no one to talk to or hang out with. i have pretty much no friends anymore & the only people that want to come around i CANT STAND! i know a handful of moms around my age but we're all SO DIFFERENT and they all seem to get out with their friends still -_- in my area it seems like almost all the young moms think partying is more important than their kids & any of the groups available to get involved with are either extremely religious (& im sorry but im NOT and can't stand the constant preaching) or they're all just older women who completely have their lives together & talk down to me b/c im in a not-so-great situation, have no friends, no car, no license, & no job...... not for lack of trying. however most people in their mid-twenties on up insist on saying "well get a job!"......... easier said than done in the worst un-employment area in the entire country...

Our local YMCA offers free child care while you work out or take a class. It's cheap. Gives your child a chance to play with other kids and you a chance to meet new people. I think that a lot of gyms offer the same service.

I'm also 21 and have a 6 month old son. Since we've had baby I have no social life. I'm a stay at home mom and I pretty much only talk to my husband and family. We still have "some" friends but most of them only come around if the baby is with a family member. It's very stressful having no one to vent to cause hubby isnt always interested in my girl rants lol.

I'm 24 and I've been like this since I had my son back in 09'. I live in a very small town and there is nothing here for myself or my son to do. I've gotten to where I keep to myself and deal with it, and started a blog since I have no one to talk to or vent to besides the fiance but he gets tired of it after awhile.

Best thing to do is try and see if you have family that is willing to watch your child for a bit so you can get out.

Blog.

I live in a small town with not much to do or anyone to 'hang out' with but, I have PLENTY to say. I never thought there were so many people in the world exactly like me until I started.

I know how that is, I think its pretty messed up that just because we have daughters they automatically think we aren't fun anymore. I know i am just as fun and I assume all mommies with kids are still fun :)
