This may seem like an odd request and also a question but is anyone like me and doesn't seem to have many good friends? I'm pretty sure I'm a decent person but I just dont have any close g/f's to hang with since Iv'e had kids. Also is there anyone in my area who may be looking for a friend I'd be willing to chat it up with you or just hang out have play dates whatever??

Juli, there is a site called meetup.com go there. Type in where you live and what you're looking for ie: mom groups, friendship, whatever. It will pull up meet-ups in your area. That's how I made some good friends in my area :) I'd look it up for you but you haven't said where you lived!!!





Actually here is the link: http://www.meetup.com/





It's not a solicitation or selling anything just check it out, it's worth it trust me.

I think that is very common now. Things are so different than when I was growing up. My parents knew all my friends parents. Now with most moms working too, it is difficult to have the time to get to know people. I can't tell you how many times I have invited all the kids in my sons class to his birthday party. I knew only 3 or 4 would show up. People just don't put forth the effort anymore. We are so disconnected even with all this technology that should make it easier to stay connected.

I feel the same way, but I live in Texas so won't do you much good. Good luck in finding a good g/f. They sure are hard to come by.

I have a few good friends but none with Kids. This can be so lonely sometimes. Whenever I join playgroups I feel like cliches have already been formed and I don't fit in. Where are you from?
