Ever have this experience? Please share
I rarely talk to most of my girl friends. They are all young like me, from 19 to 23 but are either, not in school, no kids, not working, living with parents etc. It makes it hard to even relate anymore because, well, we have different lives now.
I visit with them, they visit with me, but we aren't as solid as before. I don't even know what to do because their life consists of bumming around, partying, and no responsibility.
Mine consists of being engaged, having a small child/infant, starting up a business(actually starting it finally, done planning) and being a Full-Time student.
I know one other mom, and she is a single mom, no drive, no GED, no nothing. It's hard to even talk to her because I have so much drive, she has so little, I don't understand why she doesn't do anything for herself.

That's a tough age, because most people are transitioning from teen life to adult life & lots of people don't want to make that transition. A lot of them want to continue partying & being irresponsible. The same happened to me when i gave birth at 19m but i also moved far away from home from Boston to Atlanta. So i REALLY had no friends. I started making some friends, but they were a lot older than I. Which i guess was good though, because i was getting along with them good & they seemed to be more like me than some of my friends back home who were still doing drugs. It will take some time. This is a good time for you to concentrate on yourself & grow. You will find new friends & some of your old friends will eventually start having babies too. Just be patient. Go to the baby groups at the library or something, you'll find plenty of young moms there.
