not at all.the strictly platonic area of craigslist is probably one of the safest places on there hahahaplus when youre a mom its kind of hard to meet friends in real life (from what ive seen and heard) so the internet is your next best chance.GOOD LUCK!im sure if you find someone they would be lucky to have you and your cute baby as new friends :Djust be careful meeting them in person however...some people can be CRAZY
aw, if i lived by you i would be your friend! we have so much in common! i need more friends like me, too! none of my friends have babies, and are jealous of my little family. it's annoying. and lonely, too. you're not the only one!
Not if you're a mom. I'm sure its very hard to find other mom's in your area. Although if you are looking for new friends in your area that are moms as well, I highly recommend you join http://baby-gaga.com. I'm a member on there and I've met a few moms in my area that are really nice and I know of a lot of other moms on there that have as well. You should really check it out. I call it myspace for moms only with a forum lol. :)http://littlesugarmonster.blogspot.com
not at all. i need more mom friends too.
Good luck! But be careful - there's lots of crazies out there!! I don't think you're being psycho. It's hard to "meet" people and if you lay it all out on the table to begin with, then there's no question.
http://www.meetup.com/find/us/va/newport_news/Check out this website..you type in your interests and city, then it shows you different clubs and stuff in the area.
I invite mom's that I meet on the street to a playgroup we just started.... seems like all of them are a little desperate for mom friends. :DYou could always move to the NW. We're pretty awesome.
(JUST KIDDING! :)
Yeah I agree with Chelsey! Move out to the Northwest! We are pretty cool :-) But I hear ya! I am always looking for Mom friends. Hope you meet some awesome people soon!!
If only I lived in your town...if only. Damn! Good luck.
Not really...my friend Beth was once looking to expand her social circle and did just this. Then we met Rachael and love her dearly so I don't think it's psycho at all. If only I were near by!
You might like a playgroup. I am in one and I love it! I found it on meetup.com and all the moms are stay at home moms, all around my age with at least one child under 3 but the surprising part is that most of them are within a few months of my 10 month old! Also momslikeme.com is a website that I like that moms can have lots of different kinds of discussions about motherhood, and I have seen them setting up playdates and whatnot on there. Also I don't know if you have a MY GYM around you, but they have classes for babies of all different ages that would be a good way for you to decide if you want to try to be friends with the moms, or a Gymboree, also we did swim lessons with Collin and he loved it, and we met lots of parents with kids all right around his age (they do a parent and me class at the Y). OH! And the most fun one... storytime at your local library. Totally free, you can probably even look up the schedule online or just call and find out when they do it, but they usually sing songs and read stories and surprisingly Collin loves it. Hope that helps :)
I would recommend Stroller Strides. It's a mommy and me fitness program. It's very popular here in the left coast. See if there is one near you. I have found this program to be very effective and I get to meet lots of mommies while at the same time get a workout. There are usually playdates after the workouts and they have monthly mom's night out. It's fun, fun, fun!www.strollerstrides.net
..yeah good luck with this! just might be a little scary meeting in person at first..because you just never know. watch your back is all.
hey hey...i know this is prob more psycho haha...buttt i've been following your blog & i live in norfolk VA & my daughter is 8.5 months so if you aren't too creeped out, i can be your mom friend! i just moved here two months ago and don't have any friends or my side of the family here (hubby's fam is here & va beach). let me know...i like crafting/working out/doing random crap too :)
I think it's great! At first when I read it I was like, "Poor girl just wants friends and this blogger is making fun of her." Then I saw it was you! ha ha :) <3 it! Found you over @ The doe or the deer's link party :) http://jaclynnkyuss.blogspot.com/
that is a great idea! i hope it pans out and you find the perfect match ;)
hey I live over in the chesapeake area
you have your blogger friends!
see jess...someone already is close by!! maybe you can become tight..and when i get back in January..we can all groove
best of luck on the friendfinding. any yoga studios in your area? some have mommy/baby classes, could be a good place to meet some chill mamas! savannah, georgia's a pretty awesome place, if you ever get antsy... :0)
i hope it works out and you find someone really neat!i would totally be friends with you. : )
Good luck! I'm not a mom and I have a terrible time meeting friends, so I can relate.
Just be careful of the OTHER creeps that might answer. But you are not psycho at all. I know first hand how difficult it is to make mom friends in this lifestyle! Especially with similar interests. I hope you have luck!I will be on the OBX by fall but that is still far away for regular get together. But not impossible to meet sometime! I like to go up there for the malls!
Bummer-summer! I wouldn't qualify! I dont have a husband or significant other. :( p.s. I posted an ad in Omaha when I lived there, and met the best girls! They were so fun, and the kids had a great time playing together! I found my church there through a girl I met! ;)) Good luck!
i agree with meetup.com. although i havent checked it out for myself, i've heard good things about it. finding mommy friends is like dating again. I HATE IT! and none of my friends have babies either.
