Do you get along with other moms your age in your area?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I kind of do but not really. I live in a fairly conservative area in Texas and the moms my age around here are all very straight-laced. I've been told that I'm a very friendly person, but a lot of these women don't seem to want to associate with me because I'm not like them. I hate "normal" and strive to be unique and an individual.

They also don't seem to do anything but mommy and wife things. I refuse to lose my identity because I became a wife and mother. I have my own hobbies and interests outside of my kids and family, and I feel like I'm resented because of that. I do a lot of stuff with my kids and husband, but I also like to have time to myself. I believe it's important for a parent to have time to themselves. I don't go out all the time or every weekend though, but if the opportunity to go out comes up and I can financially go and I have someone to watch the kids, I'm going!

Does anyone else have a problem with making mommy friends?

I'm sure I would, but I don't have any friends in the area because I don't really go out and have an opportunity to meet them.

I don't really know anyone my age here. I'm a loser I only have one friend. She is my age and we get along ok. We try to get together and do play dates or dinner at each others houses but lately she has been pretty busy with school.

Yes. It'll surprise some of you, but I'm pretty laid back and get along with most people, at least on a casual level.

Quoting kellysparkles:

You sound like me...except insert "true Marine wife" lol.  

Quoting thefiregoddess:

Yep. I'm not a 'true army wife' and I dont believe in popping out kids for benefits on either end of the spectrum. 

I dont have a gaggle of snot nosed benefit brats, I dont live on post, I dont live in public housing , I'm not trashy, I'm not rich.

I'm from the north, not the south (where we live) I'm fat, I have multiple piercings in my face and I firmly believe that you need a license to breed.

I get on A LOT of nerves here. I dont really care though, because I'm not a mother to make friends.

The women in my area are so pretentious that they really can't enjoy themselves. I get along with them but don't really have close friends.
