    Default Felt so lonely today.

    This is just a "Im feeling sorry for myself" post. I took dd to an indoor play area today got there at 9:30 and l left by 10:00. The reason I left is because I sat in the cafe area on my own watching dd play while at least 6 other groups of mothers and children sat around me chatting and having a great time. I kind of felt silly and almost like I wasn't supposed to be there. Dd played by herself while all the other children played in groups. I just felt so horrible. I just had to get out of there. On the way home I just kept thinking why can't I have that? I have tried to make friends and it just never seems to flourish. I feel like Im missing out on so much..Vent over. Thanks for reading.

    Sounds like you need an hug so I'm sending you one. I hope it gets better for you, maybe you just haven't met the right Perot worthy of your friendship yet. They are out there and probably looking for you too. I hope you find them soon

    Aw honey. That's no good. I'm the opposite, I love love love being alone with a coffee, but if it's not what you want then it would hurt a bit. Have you joined a playgroup or similar? Or tried to meet any other Hubbers who live near you?

    Hugs. I have been in your shoes before. It's really hard. Have you tried to find an hubbers that are in your area? That's how I made my friends. Took alot though, not everyone clicks.

    Sending you lots of hugs. Parenting can be lonely and I only wish that some mothers groups would see a mum by herself and invite her to join.

    I really regret not joining mothers group when Ds was born. I feel like it is too late now to join a group now. I feel like all the mothers would have already have a bond. Ds has just started school so I am hoping I will make some friends there.

    I know exactly what you mean. I now take DD to a few different playgroups and that has helped a lot! I still don't have any friends but I get along with the ladies and have a friendly chit chat.

    I just wanted to say hang in there. I am quite shy and you could have been describing me sitting in that play centre. My DS started Prep last year and since then I have found a lovely little circle of friends. It gets easier.
