  • Find a group from Cafe moms of moms in your area. That is what I have done. Now we are talking of meeting up for coffee.

  • Get out and socialize! People won't come to you, you need to go to them. What interests do you have besides your children?

    Find volunteer opportunities. Churches, YWCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, United Way are all possibilities. Or maybe your local public library or a local hospital. Senior centers. ANYTHING, ANYPLACE that gets you out of the house.

  • Do you work? Try a part time (even 10 hours a week) job like at a movie rental store, grocery store, card shop, something where your main focus is customer interaction. It feeds your need to be around people, makes you a few bucks, and puts you in a position to meet a bunch of different people.
