  • Ask questions in topics that interest you, join groups that would benefit you, and then when you get responses from people who are similar to you, have the same interests, or kids' ages, or like-mindedness, or anyone who is particularly encouraging no matter where you are, friend them. :)

  • ask questions, answer questions - you'll find you start running into the same moms with common beliefs or opinions as yourself - the names will start looking familiar and it will come. Today I made two more friends myself just from answering questions and making connections. It takes a few weeks and time on the forum. Welcome!

  • In my opinion, it's a bit difficult to make "friends" here. I have been coming a couple of months -- but the names do start looking familiar and I have noticed that some people (over and over again) answer questions kind of like I do. Perhaps another idea would be when you win "best answer" or select a "best answer" to your questions -- look at that person as a potential friend? You already have something in common! (ps -- I need to do that myself) :g'luck!-)

  • Join groups that match your interests (stick with the smaller ones, not owned by CM)
