    Yep, all the time. I don't have many friends & those I do have work a lot. They also like to be really immature & they are constantly fighting amongst themselves so it's hard to catch up with all of them (ie have to deal with the pathetic high-school stuff - 'oh I'm not coming if she is going to be there' etc) so I just don't bother anymore.

    DH is a workaholic so I don't see him much, & when he is home he just wants to sit & watch tv. We barely talk anymore, we just argue.

    I'm trying to learn to enjoy my own company. I'll be basically raising our child alone once it's born cause DH is always at work, so hopefully I'll be less lonely then cause I'll get to spend time with my baby.

    gammermummy maybe we should all keep posting in this thread so that each of us always knows that someone else cares about our day, even if it is just a random person on the internet.

    Between working full time and taking the kids to sport, really don't have time to be lonely! I'm more than happy to hang out with DP in my spare time, and our kids of course.

    When I was a SAHM I felt lonely though. I think that's why I enjoy going to work, I get daily interaction with adults. I found being a SAHM very hard.

    Yes. When at home with the kids I get lonely. I have loved having my mum stay with us the last few weeks, great company, but she's going soon so I know I'll be lonely during the day, especially when my 3yo is at daycare two days and it's just me and bub. At least I can have a conversation with my 3yo!!

    Yeah, sometimes I feel a bit lonely- my closest friends are all living either overseas or interstate at the moment so I don't get to see them often. I'm close to both my sisters though, and see them regularly, but we're all so busy with our families that most of the time we spend together is with 10 kids between us in tow.

    Yes I do..all the time. I don't have my license and the public transport here is awful so I don't leave the house all week. We also live in a horrible suburb (moving in a month) so that plays a part in it too because there Isn't even a single park. I'm a really shy and reserved person an unfortunately people always mistake me for being ignorant I also have serious anxiety when it comes to getting out there. Ds1 has a speech delay and has been invited to start a playgroup for kids with a speech delay so I'm going to do what it takes to take him and hopefully I wont feel as lonely
