does staying at home make your social life alittle more difficult? if so in what way???????
Quoting HIJKLM:No, I am free to make plans almost any time I like. When I was working I never had time to go out because I was working, spending time with my family, cleaning or trying to catch up on sleep. I rarely miss a party, school function or lunch date with friends.
sounds like a delightful life!

No I'm more social now because I have time to do what I want. If I miss something, it's because I'm already out doing something else.
It can definitely make it more difficult but not impossible to overcome. I have to seek out groups and people. I organize a playgroup, am involved at Church during the week and do volunteer work.
ive never been very social nor had alot of friends.. now that im a stay at home mom, to my one year old son, i feel like its the same but im even a little more isolated.., i love my son and like taking care of him, but sometimes, i wish I had lady friends or other moms, i could relate to
being a SAHM allowed me to be social. we were out and about 4-5 days a week with friends. now that i am working part time (kids are in school) i feel like i have no life.
Nope. I have never had any issues with my social life or with confidence.
No, I go out with friends when I want to. Every day I am talking with other parents, there are school functions, play dates and so on.
Wow! I am surprised that so many people are responding positively. I find it VERY isolating. With my first child I was the only one of my large group of friends who did not work. Everyone else had full time jobs and afterwards were busy taking care of their family. I would see friends maybe once a month if I was lucky. With my second child i lived in a new area. I had NO friends or family. I joined play groups and went to story time, but it was very difficult. Everyone i met was so different than me that I found only very superficial friendships. So, I check in on chat rooms like this one to pretend like someone cares about my opinions!
