you see I'm really shy but have always been ok at talking to men (mostly in a flirtatious manner) but now I'm married and honestly I don't want guy friends, I really really need a girls night out but I don't have any girl friends?
I just find talking to women so intimidating- i could be my social anxiety... anyways, how do i do it?

I agree with the other CM's. You will be fine just be yourself and ask about what they like and compliment them on whatever you think is neat about them. Their hair or shirt, shoes etc.. Also I agree with the last poster. Make sure you get to know them as a person first before you tell them your situation with being friends with men. It doesn't mean that you can't talk about yourself just try to not bring it up for a while. I used to have a hard time talking to women too and I had to just get out there and try. Years later I am so happy to have made contact with all the wonderful lady friends in my life and you will too. I used to be painfully shy too but I got out there. It will be fine, just have fun.

I met a couple moms at the story hours at the library and you can find groups out there, sometimes in the town paper.It's hard either way though if you try to hard you may end up with someone you don't even really like so be careful but not to picky , I guess it'll just happen.I've felt the same way, from time to time, and when I just relaxed it all kinda' falls into place.
