Awkward Introductions

Am I the only person who finds it painfully hard to just say hello to other parents in the vicinity of playgrounds, schools, etc?
My daughter had always been around her cousins but now that they moved away she's lonely. I take her places to play and such but I find it so awkward trying to make friends with other parents so my girl could have more friends. She's 3 and there aren't many activities or classes she can take in this area. Does it happen to anyone else? I just really want to rip off the social anxiety band aid for my daughter's sake.

I'm kind of like that myself. My bf is the complete opposite no matter where we go people just gravitate to him and our son is the same way. I've gotten a lot better about it within the last year or so I think because my son is so social and out going that normally he breaks the ice for me cause he'll just walk up and talk to anyone so he makes it pretty easy for me.

Welcome to the group :) I am the same way but once you get more practice you will do better. Have you joined any local mom groups? I have met moms in those and here on Cafemom!
