I'm 22 with 2 kids a little boy and girl. I'm a stay at home mom. I find my self always being alone and never having friends. I try to make friends but it just doesn't seem to be working.Its really starting to make me become depressed. Now my fiance has a good handfull of great friends and every now and then he gets to go out with them and it does make me a little jealous. because i want the same for myself. am I the only one who is like this? How do you meet new people and becoming friends?

I second the meetup.com site, I've made many new friends from my Mommy group on there, now I go out once a week with some of them just as us grownups (I have a 3 year old and a 8month old) and its great to have activities to do with the kids several times a week on top of our regular classes/activities. The thing with making friends is just being there you can't expect a magic click right away with everyone, these things take time so get out there and get involved, if there's no group near you then start one.

There is a really good site called meetup.com. I am always promoting it for people.
It will have a list of mommy groups in your area and you can pick and choose which ones you want to join. Dues are about $12 a year.

I was a young mum once in the same situation. you have to make a life for yourself and get out there. First of all find a mums and tots group and introduce yourself to the other mums it takes time to feel comfortable with strangers so keep going every week and soon people will talk to you and accept you for who you are. Then let your new relationships blossom, get involved with charity or fund raising and do things you would not normally do.

Try and find a baby sitter that you trust and go out with your boyfriend, why should he get to go out and you don't. Marriage is a partnership and you should both have time to go out together and apart. You will find that you will make friends when your children go to school just help the situation along a bit by being confident and approachable. Believe me there are a lot of mums out there that are to shy to make the first move.
