I have no friends or a life.

I'm a 15 year old mom and I home school. I love my daughter and everything, but I'm a little sad because I have absolutely NO friends. I have looked into teen mom groups and I don't 'qualify' for any one of them (which is funny because where I live there is a high pregnancy rate). The father of my child went back to school after leaving because he was embarrassed, and no one cares at all that he doesn't take care of my child, so those friends are gone. Guys in stores look at me and smile, but are never my age or talk to me. I try really hard to stay focused on other things or try to look forward to when I go to school/college (I plan on getting my GED, but I'm not 16 until August!) I'm a good mom. My mom has taught me a lot and I'm pretty happy being Ruby's mom. I know I should of expected this, but I didn't think EVERYONE would not bother to say hi or even remember me. I also thought a city with so many teen moms would have something for us besides a nurse visit. I don't know what to do.

Hi sweetie, I'm not a teenager nor was I a teen mom. I am a 30 year old mother of 5 though. I got married when I was 20 & I had my oldest daughter 2 months after turning 21. I spent 20 years making friends & within about a year and half they had ALL disappeared. So I know how you feel. On the positive side though you will one day realize, just as I did, that if those people were really your friends they would still be there. You already have the most important thing in your life...a beautiful baby girl. So don't be sad....life is way too short & they grow up way too fast. Cheer up & enjoy EVERY minute that you can with her because once it's gone you can't get it back. I wish someone had told me this sooner because I took for granted the first few years of my oldest 2 kids lives...I always said we'll do this later or I don't have time to do that and now they're at the age where they stay away from home with they're friends every chance they get. I know I'm twice your age but I know what it's like to feel you have no friends & I love to help people whenever I can so feel free to email me if you ever just need to talk. Wishing you & Ruby the best!! smnth_sturgeon@yahoo.com

I'll be your friend :) and I know how you feel because I went through it when I had my daughter. On the bright side though it helps you find out who your true friends and as your baby gets older you will be able to do more and hopefully at some point you will meet some other mothers to be friends with.

Hello (: I know how you feel and I'm not a teen. I'm 21 && have no friends except my husband really. I feel like I bother him at times with all the things I tell him lol I guess I need a Girl friend for some of the conversations lol I'm here if you like to talk. Try not to stress so much about old friends. Some people are lucky to find true friends early in life and some of us are not. Just be open to new friends that may come along (: As for your baby daddy, I can only imagine how you feel about that but look at the bright side. You are the one who gets to enjoy your baby. You get to see her grow up and become a little somebody. && He is the one who will end up regretting all he is missing out on. Kids are a blessing! Focus on you and your future with your baby && everything else will fall into place! Keep your head up (:
