  • I usually get on cafemom, but when I do then my family starts coming around to see what I am up to.

  • I would get lost in a good book or a good movie. Do something for yourself that you really enjoy, take a simple pleasure. Tomorrow look in your local paper for activities or clubs in your area where you might meet some new friends.

  • That is what Cafe mom is for :-) Hang in there and just keep trying to "pick up" those other mommys at the park. I met one of my best friends at babies r us :-)

  • I do right now. I just moved away from my really good friends and have not connected with my neighbors here yet. I talk to my friends back home daily. I also try to get out of the house. I went for a walk yesterday and my son and I visited with my mom and step-dad tonight.

  • I get online and chat with my friends there.

    I actually have some extremely wonderful online friends who have been there for me more then real life ones.

  • I do sometimes because my husband and I are going through some things. I really cannot trust him but he has no idea how much it hurts me. So, I am looking for a job after the holidays. If this is not your situation, which I hope it is not because I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy, then for now if I were you I would just get into a hobby and try to find groups of moms that have the same interests, or volunteer somewhere. You will make friends eventually! Don't give up hope.

  • I got involved with more things with my church... the only problem for me with this is I live an hour away and most everyone is closer to the proximity of the church than I am. I hope to move closer in a yr or two. I talked to people online but I recently as of a yr ago got burned badly by an online friend and do not do online friendships as much anymore. Just personal and besides I need to be around people offline more and develop healthier relationships that way. :-)

  • I was lonely too till I got on and started hanging out with like minded people. I also get on cafemom or Facebook too.

  • Find out if there is a moms club in your area you could join, it's a great way to get to know other women in your area.

  • Is there a group here on CM looking for people that live in your area? You could find some friends that way maybe. Or as others said, look up a moms group meet up in your area. Usually they list those in a parenting paper or magazine.
    It's hard, I know. It took me 3 years and having my DS before I met anyone where I live now. But they are now my best friends! GL!!
