I'm a single mom. and it seems like my friends stopped coming around as much after I had my daughter. which I miss them. and yes i have my family. but I still need my friends too. I don't have anyone to talk to about stuff. I have a lot of things going on, but yet not 1 friend in sight to lean on. how do I try to start over and make new friends that either have kids or at least have some idea what it's like to have kids. I feel so alone and not know what to do

My friends did the same and I am not a single mother. My friend's wife and I are trying to make a friendship, her friends split too when she had her daughter.

You might try looking for a mom's group through Yahoo or even on here. If you go to the library for storytime (which we do sometimes) or other places where kids & mom's hang out, sometimes it's easy to make friends in that way. Even if your baby is too small to play or do much right now, there are usually other moms there for the same reason. It can be lonely so hang in there!

I second this. Also for me the infant stage was the most difficult friend wise. As kids get older they can be involved in things giving moms more opportunities to connect. But boy was that first year or so lonely!
Hang in there it gets better!

I had my first two kids when I was younger, and I'll have to admit I had forgotten how this feels. I'm pregnant with my third child from my second marriage...we have a 2 yo, 1 yo, and this one is due in June. We moved for dh's work and I know nobody here. I'm definitely looking forward to finding a group of some sort for a little adult interaction.

I agree with all of this. Besides my sister in law I really didn't have any friends until my son started playing sports. Now I have a whole other network of friends that I look forward to seeing at practices, games and every so often when we get together just adults.

Yup. That happens afte kids.

find new friends that also have children. Single non kid folk don't really care to hang around people with kids, unless it's a girls night..lol
