  • Girl, I went away over 10 years ago when my DH was in the Army. Came back and I'm still trying to make new friends! When you discover the secret, let me know! ;o)

  • I've been there...and I'm still there. Its not as easy as it used to be. People have suggested to me that I should join groups, clubs, etc. I stay at home with my son, so its not like I have the opportunity to make friends at work either. Anyway, I know I'm not helping you much! Good luck on your friends search!

  • I was in your shoes over 27 years ago. I moved 800 miles away from home. The first few months were tough but I kept going. I found each new friend in different places. One at the apartment building, one at the park where I would take my newborn for daily strolls, one at the bookstore where I'd spent hours reading because we couldn't afford to buy books then, one at an event I went to one Sunday afternoon. I just started talking to people. If they didn't want to talk I moved on to the next one. Keep your chin up and just keep trying. Go to different things you like and eventually you'll run into someone who is on the same page as you.

  • We moved to a new city and finally bought a house last November...I have met several new Momma friends at the weekly story time at the public library! Maybe you could try that out?

  • I can't make friends either. I only made like, one real friend during my whole time at college! I'm still friends with my lifelong buddies, but can't make new ones. I think I don't really know how. Plus, I'm weird and I don't think everyone gets me!
