I don't think I really have any because when I was in school I isolated myself from everyone because I was pregnant and my babys father always got mad when I ditched him. Anyways I dropped out after I had my baby and I still don't talk to anyone. I've been outta school for about a year now, I work full time, go home to take care of my daughter, and I'm 18. I am no longer with my babys father and haven't been since she was born which is 18 mos now. I was just wondering how I can make new friends?Answer Question

There are places where young moms like you can go & meet each other. I know it can be hard to make other mommy friends at your age. I had my daughter when i was 19 (but i looked 12), & when i would take her to the library to meat other kids, some of the moms would just stare & look at me like i was crazy. So, it was hard for me to make friends too, i felt estranged from the yuppie mommies in my neighborhood. I do have more friends now though, i was just patient & eventually was able to make more time for myself now that my daughter is older. I will find out online about places for young mom's to meet. I think it's a great idea.

I'm glad to hear that you got your GED. Have you considered taking some college classes? I don't mean full time or anything just a class here and there to put on a resume. That would be another great way to meet new people with your same interest and better yourself. Also I did not mention before, check with your local community school or community center for little classes or meet ups. They have everything from sports to painting to sign language, just for fun. I always enjoyed doing Gymboree with my son. I was 24 at the time and the youngest mother in the class yet I still managed to make a great friend with a child my sons age. Anywhere you can get involved in something you enjoy will help you to meet people that have similar interest would be a good place to start. I agree this is a great place to start to! Nice to meet you.
