  • You can make friends in local groups (Cafemom might have a group for your area), parks, or the play area in the malls.

  • I always meet women through my husband... Either he works with them or with their husbands and we will get together once a month and have dinner or go to the mall or somewhere the kids can play. I met a very good friend of mine because they were outside and my son wanted to go play with her daughter... so we went over there and said that he wanted to play and was it okay. 2 years later we are still friends. If someone came up to me and basically said "you want to be friends" out of no where, I'd probably be a little opprehensive at first (you just don't know about people, until you get to know them) but I won't say no.

  • We have a Mom Club in our city. You may want to check with your city, or surrounding area, to see if there is anything like that offered. Ours is great. They have tons of activities planned through the month, for various times of the day, and you can meet tons of new people. Ours is not just for SAH Moms, but for all Moms.
