Anyone else not have even ONE friend?

I am 26 years old, mom of two kids, and my husband and I have moved around alot and have no friends--either one of us. We stay inside(live around all old people ) and rely on each other to keep company. My Dh goes to college weekdays and works all weekend even nightS. I am going crazy here! We live in a tiny town where everyone already has there groups. I dont know what to do...is this normal and what can i do to change it? I want to go to church but do not want to go alone(Dh works during that time)

  • i totally understand. im in the same boat as you are. we live in a tiny town full of old people and everyone is in their own little click. its so hard to get to know anyone. neither me nor dh have any friends and with two kids we are driving ourselves nuts.
    because of this we will be moving in the fall to somewhere not far from here but has more of a community with more young families and activities to do to get to know other people. btw i am not working right now and my dh is a disabled veteran so we are both at home with the kiddos after a while we diffenantly need a break but with us unable to make friends around here its almost impossible to get a sitter to go out together. i feel your pain.

  • How old are your kids? When our kids were young we went to kid friendly places, pre-school moms etc. You'll make friends through your kids. Church is a great place to start. Go and introduce yourself to the pastor on a day that their is no service and you'll have a friend the first day you attend church. Before you know it, you'll be very busy with all sorts of friends. :)

  • I would love to go to church but I am scared to go alone with a 3 year old and 5 month old. I am trying to get Dh to quit school and get a weekday job because this is just too much. We are both really nice people and would love to have friends and get out of the house. I even think we are both in a little depression because we feel helpless.
