Does any one else find it hard....

Posted by   + Show Post

to find young mothers in your area that aren't still mentally in high school? I am 23 years old with a beautiful 4 year old boy, moved into the area about 3 years ago. Because i was a sahm for quite some time, i knew no one besides my SO and my DS. Then i found a few moms my age later down the road and soon came to realize that having a child did not in fact make them realize that the things they did before the child was born-were not OK anymore. (if that makes sense) One was doing drugs, another was promiscuous (who i felt bad for, but i don't think its okay to bring a different guy into your childs life every other week, if you're going to have fun, don't involve your childs feelings *my opinion*.) Anyway, so now i am back to square one when it comes to friends-let alone friends who have children...its really frustrating and it can feel lonely at times. Has anyone else been in the same situation?

I don't have any friends really because of this. If its not drugs and partying its starting unnecessary drama that I don't need to deal with. I've lived in the same place for 6 years and never really made friends other than dh. Hence the reason I joined here :)

It's hard to find anyone my age (21) who is not still mentally in high school. It doesn't matter if they are parents or not.

I'm with you.  Esp. different men in and out of their lives.  I'd much rather spend time with my kids then random men anyday anyway.  I do have a male friend who has been like my bffe for 7-8 years and I have recently introduced my kids to him, but only because I don't feel like he's going anywhere anytime soon.  I usually only hang out with my friends when we are doing kid things, like going to Disney or the fair, a museum, bowling alley, movie theater, etc.
