  • Send invites. Find people you have things in common with, and ask. =) Friends on this site aren't quite as big of a deal as on Facebook, or other social sites, but still.

  • The same way as in real life. But on CM you already know the Mom you want to be friends with has things in common with you.
    That gives you something to talk about right away. Also I treat everyone as a friend unless they obviously aren't.

  • As much as you can be friends with strangers on the internet you don't know anything about IRL :)

  • I joined groups that fit my interests! If you like to crochet, join a crochet group. If you are into alternative parenting, join one of those groups! If you follow posts where a mom has a similar parenting style or some commonality (like music taste or if they seem to answer a lot of your questions in this forum) send them an invite!

  • Join some groups, then when you find someone that you have things in common with, send them an invite.
