  • Do you work out? Go to a gym and take some kind of class, and you can get to know the other ladies that may even have similar interests as you. Or maybe signing you kids up for some classes or sports, and get to knows some of the other parents. It must be tough.. keep your head up, and pretty soon you will want your free time back lol.

  • Have you done a google search for any mom groups? That might help. Or just go to places where other moms will be like the playground, kid friendly restaruants, etc. and be outgoing! Good luck!

  • If you have school age kids, start going to PTA meetings

    If you went to college, check to see if there is an alumni group in your area

    Moms are creatures of habit - go to different parks at different times of day; start conversations.

    If you have little ones, and you can afford it, look for tot classes like Gymboree, Kindermusic or Wiggleworms.

    Explore your new home! get out and see the sights: museums, downtown, ethnic neighborhoods, etc.

  • I joined meetup.com and searched for my city. I found MULTIPLE groups in my town that had playdates, parties, all sorts of activities.
    I live in washington too, where are you at?
