    Default Are you a social person?

    So I find myself trying really hard to make friends and feel like I have to attend everything I am invited to cos I feel if I don't then I might miss out on something or someone won't think I am making an effort and therefore won't invite me again.

    Then I take a step back and think to myself that I really don't care all that much, its just that I feel like my DS is missing out on social outings and things like that. I do still have close friends from high school but we are at different stages in life so I feel like I have to make friends with mums with bubs but really can't be bothered most of the time! Sorry just a bit of rambling lol.

    Does anyone else feel like this?

    I could have typed this word for word.

    DP and I moved to WA from NSW Oct 2010 and I have less than a handful of friends here.

    I keep trying new avenues to meet people... and it never eventuates.

    I feel that way
    But I do love getting out and socializing, I feel left out if I can't go or I'm not invited.

    Doesn't really happen much, the mums at school are all on their thirties, I'm in my early twenties, so I guess they see me as immature or something when really I'm probably more on their level than they think

    I consider myself a very social person..... If I like the people i need to be social with lol!

    I moved to wa from Sydney 4 months ago and haven't met anyone I could see myself being friends with.... As yet!

    Mind you I'm pregnant and am hoping that once my little girl arrives that I'll make friends here through mothers groups etc.

    No, Im not a social person. Im a homebody. Quite comfortable chilling at home with DP. I do take DS to things though as he is a social butterfly and enjoys making friends with anyone and everyone!

    I do enjoy the occasional coffee and chat meet up with a small group of women Ive met through this forum
