My feelings get really hurt when other mothers at my child's school don't speak. I am a nice, friendly, considerate person. But sometimes, people who I know and who know me walk right by, or are standing right in front of me and don't even say hello. I just don't understand this. It is only polite to speak to people, right? I am always friendly and show an interest in others. I will be standing there waiting for the bell to ring, and some mothers I know will walk right up and talk to other people around, but not to me. I just don't understand why some people seem to have so many friends and connections and people want to be around them, but not me. I am attractive, I don't come to school dressed frumpily, I don't smell (lol), so I am just really confused. I used to always go up to people and say hi and try and make conversation, but I am tired of it not being reciprocal. What should I do?Answer Question

Maybe these others Moms know each from other activities thier kids are in or could be neighbors, relatives?
Some women just love being in a clique and excluding others...
I would try to start up a conversation with one of the others moms about something school related just to chit-chat; maybe there is a good reason that has nothing to do with you.
If they are still ignoring you just forget them its not worth it.

Are you my long lost twin, OMG! I feel the same way everything you just described is me too.
I don't talk much and I don't take the anitiative to do it either now if you talk to me I will talk to you. I used to talk to people but that was because I knew them better but now that I have moved away and started my own live with my dh and kids and feel I don't know too many people that is why I am this way. I mean those r my thoughts. Don't take it personal I guess we just need to give it time and go with it. Some people talk alot and some people just sit back and watch....lol (And we are those kind)...lol GL But I know how you feel you're like... Am I even here do you see me standing here....Hello!!!
