This is me too. I have given up making friends at work. They always leave the workplace. :-(

I moved to a small town and it is really difficult to make new friends here. Work the just seem settled and not really welcoming with new comers. They are nice but not like some of my past coworkers. I try...it is difficult.

I have no friends really. I talk to a older lady on phone, met her when i was younger. She never visit me and i dont visit her, just talk on phone. Talk to a few neighbors, the one neighbor who i talk regularly , is about to move. It also seem like when someone invite me to hang out, its always a invitation to come to church with them. I dont know?

Yeah, it is hard.  Making friends (any gender) is no different than dating w/o the romantic component.  At first you may have a couple things in common, but get to know them better and they just aren't a good match most of the time.  And as a single mom, you don't have the luxury of doing many things childless people get to do to make memories and such.  You're not readily available, you're trying to balance parenting, life and home.  I kinda gave up on "looking" right now because it's just too difficult and I don't have the time to deal with the ups and downs.  I'm not a fan of disappointment.  LOL

Its so hard. I feel like Im too picky...Im 23 single mom of 2, and it seems any girls around my age are either club girls or even if they have kids they are losers lol...I need a young mom who is a GOOD mom, but able to laugh and let her hair down once in a while.

I honestly dont have energy or time for friends.. I could force it but I barely have time for myself. I give so much of myself to my kids (2) I am exhausted. I think once both of my little ones go to school that would give me free time and I would conteplate friends. so sad but true.

I agree with bambiF Im 26 and most people i know are partying traveling or dating. I dont do none of those things so there is really no common interest with the people i used to know or my age group. All I talk about are my kids or future plans and people seem bored by that...lol

I would love to meet some new mommy friends, that's why I'm here!!  I'm a single mother and most of my so called "friends" don't put in any effort to see me or my son so I feel very alone. I love my family but I don't always agree with the way they live their life so I distance myself.... I'm tired of sitting home every night, every weekend, every holiday- it sucks! :O(

I feel the same way! Making friends is really heard! I just fall into depression.
