I have no friends...

Wed, 09-14-2011 - 4:03pm

i'm 26 with a 5 year old son and another boy on the way (obviously). All my friends are guys so naturally with me being pregnant we dont hang out any more. I don't have any female friends yet my boyfriend (who's 20) thinks it will be easy to find a best friend easily. I dont go out because i'm pregnant and my sons father has never been involved....i'm not sure where he thinks i'm going to be meeting all these people. I'm the kind of girl that doesnt get a long with other females bc they seem to have issues with me...i've always gotten a long better with guys...His best friends are his two cousins ( one of which he shares the same bday with) they are 1-2 years apart. I dont know what to do. Arizona doesnt exactly have many things/places to go to while pregnant and even when i wasnt i don't drink soo wouldnt exactly meet anyone out at bars (but then again why would i want to meet a best friend there)

I used to really dislike other females too, but now I just don't like anyone.

It is definitely hard to make new friends, especially if you are in a new place.

What part of AZ are you in? I'm in the east valley of Phoenix...and just moved here in December so I had to start over with making friends. My church is the place I met a lot of them...through a mom's group. Also, meetup.com is a great place to find mom's groups...you can try a few until you find a good fit and its a free site.

I second the mother's group idea. Even if you don't neccesarily have a ton of girl friends, you might be able to find a few people you have something in common with. I'm in a meetup.com group, and they do a ton of get togethers for kids/babies and mom's nights out. There are only 2-3 of the 40 that I really LIKE to hang out with, but sometimes just getting out of the house is good!

Well that's gotta suck. Guys just don't get the pregnancy thing, do they? I'm a girly girl and have mostly female friends but that doesn't mean someone like me wouldn't like you. Maybe you can look for a mother's group in your area. I joined one called mothers and more. Our group is small but diverse and there are a lot of family events as well as meetings.

I wish you lived in baltimore, seems like we would get along fine. I'm also the type that doesn't hang out with females. I hang with guys, I play sports, I like to joke around etc. I think a lot of females cause drama. I like tattoos, strip clubs etc lol DH thinks that because his best friend girl friend is pregnant we can be friends lol AH NaH. I'm getting together my baby shower list now lol omg I'm stuggling
