I have no friends in my local area...

I am not a very family orientated person, I basically have none, and I don't relaly have any friends nearby so I was wondering how to find people around? I used to go to a toddler group but all of the other mothers were quite uppity however much effort I made and in the end I gave up. So how should i get some? I joined cafemom to try to make a few but in my local area I can't seem to find any, especially mothers, I just want to chat sometimes!

  • I know how you feel. I am in the same boat. We just moved to a new area and I don't know anyone. I also joined a group, but same as you, the moms seemed a bit snobbish.

  • I'll be your friend! Granted, I probably don't live very close, lol, but I'll be your internet friend! Where do you live? Have you tried searching groups for your area?

  • Ah thanks anon, it's good to know some people feel the same way and are in the same situation.

    And hello there :). To be honest even internet friends are good! I just want to chat, get out of the house a little, well in my mind anyway...I live in the UK.

  • Well, I found this group for you:
    There aren't many members but it's still active.

    And you're more than welcome to msg me anytime you need a friend!

  • Try searching on "yahoo groups". I actually found some that were Local and they do lunches and stuff.

  • search online for MOMS clubs. I'm not sure if they operate in the UK, but they are really a great way to meet up with other mothers. They do some moms only outings, playdates, get togethers and stuff like that all year round. Good luck!

  • I totally know what ur saying. I live in Reno, NV and everyone I know smokes pot. I just quit smoking weed 9months ago and i feel so lonely. I am afraid if I remain friends with them I'll get back into the habit. And then on the other hand, I am not a church going person. People there just bug me. If I go to the casinos, I'll drink and i don't want to drink and drive. My husband works such long hours he never wants to go do anything. So.......I'm stuck.
