30 Something Moms 30 Something Moms

I have read a lot of posts lately where ladies talk about not having mommy friends. I have an idea! If you would like to make new friends with other moms start with this post! Share where you're from, how many kids, their ages, maybe interests. Then scroll through to see what other moms post. There are bound to be many of us who live  near each other! If not you could always exchange e-mails or phone #'s with any moms who share your interests! Let's get this post going!

In the search box I just typed in "Gig Harbor moms" (you may vary the moms to mothers, mamas, mommas, etc), then selected the groups tab.  Did the same when I lived in Tacoma.  I also belong to a state group for WA, but I don't use it often for the reasons you gave.  Made some friends pretty quick.  I can see it being a problem if you live in a small town, but in med-large cities it works great.  It's worth a try anyway!

Quoting cassiekitty7:

Do you go to the state group or something?  Where do you go?  I live in Colorado and I am in that group but I live in a very large state and most people on there are on the front range (Co springs or denver areas)  That is like 3 hours away from me.  Is there somewhere else that is more localized or is it just state local? 

Quoting IQuitCounting:

I just go to my local mom's group page and start posting, looking for play-dates.  It's worked well for me so far.  There's usually always a group already started.

Oh, and if all else fails, start one yourself!  It may be that there are others near you but since there's no group you simply haven't connected :)

 The bay area is a big area :)  I still think of myself as Bay area, even though I am more north now... Ukiah :) 

I am 32 mom of a 4 year old boy.  I am married and work full time.  I enjoy being social and doing fun things with fun people! I am a crazy A's fan (whose has playoff tickets now woo hoo!)  My town is small so I am not expecting to connect with people from here, but it would be nice!

Quoting Mari6443:

Hi! I love your idea! My name is Marissa. I am married and have 2 kids - a girl who is 7, and a boy who just turned 5 a few weeks ago. I live in Florida.  I absolutely love to read, watch movies, go online, write, and connect with other moms. One more thing...I have been through many very unpleasant experiences in my life, and I don't mind sharing them with other people.

Helloooooo!!!!  My name is Marsha.
