banging head into wall Hello Everyone!

                                My name is Niecey and I live in Surfside Beach, South Carolina.  I am originally from Buffalo, New York.  I relocated down here in June of 2009.  I guess my real reason for joining this group is because I don't have any friends at all in this town that I relocated to and honestly???  I didn't really have any friends back home either.  Without us knowing it as we get older it seems that our friends, the few that we may have once had just drift away as we get older and as life changes.  I find that I am in this boat all alone and I have no one who really understands me and my struggles and what I go through sometimes.  I have tried to associate with younger women like 20's and 30's but we clash because they are all into tattoo's and body piercings and acting wild and I am simply more laid back and not into all the wild stuff anymore.  So they catch and attitude and get defensive what because I don't do the things that they do?  I don't have time for that.  I am 46 years old, I have 3 school aged children 12, 8, and 7, and another 5 who are older and living in New York State (Buffalo) where I relocated from.  I am married but the marriage has issues, and now that I am older I am having sexual issues, lower libidio, and just no interest at all in men.  I am crankier, and just want to be left alone.  I am unhappy and just need a senseible friend who may be going through the same things or maybe has, or is just maybe a good listener and a good friend.  I wish that I could find a local friend as well as converstation on line here because I would like a work out buddie and someone to do things with, go shopping, just get together with ya know?  I am very sad right now and I would feel so much better if I could find some friends.  I know that this may sound desperate but I am really in need of friends.  I can't believe that I am this old and feeling so isolated and alone.  Some days I just sit there and wonder how in a world as big as it is how I could be sitting here alone and having no other mom to talk to and hang out with.  I have tried churches and schools, and play date groups.  Are you kidding me?  These women act like your invading their circle and aren't very welcoming.  So I am hoping that I land a new friend or two and can get in on some good discussions.  I have alot to talk about that's for sure.  And here I am

Hey girl,

First, welcome to the group! There are lots of friendly mamas here that would love to be your friend. You will love this group! 

No need to feel alone. We can be in a very crowded room and still feel alone. I am sure you will connect with someone on here soon. Having a special friend somehow does make life easier. 

Hugs! 

Lydia

Hello!!!!!!!!

We're so glad that you're here!

Gosh, so many of the things you are writing  about are common to women our age, I think.

I think wisdom makes us a little discerning about how we spend our time and who we want to spend it with. I think that's so natural for our set. It begins to be a time of reflecting on our lives so far and for deciding how we want our lives to progress.

I am so glad you're here and look forward to getting to know you!

 Welcome, Niecey!

I hope that you will become a regular here.. .. I know I have really come to love this group.

I'm sorry that you are feeling so isolated and alone. And to an extent, I know that feeling. Maybe we can all pull together and get us all out of this rut!!

Hi Niecey,

Nice to meet you. I am Helen, 45 years old and living in Toronto. I hear ya because my baby is almost 7 months old and all the new moms here are so young. I have one good friend here in Toronto who gave birth 2 months before me but I feel like we sort of drifted apart being that our ways of parenting are so different. She is just about to turn 40 herself. Most of my friends are back in Montreal where I am from originally.

You will surely make friends here who can surely relate to what you are going through. We know how to be serious but we also know how to have a good time.
