    Yep I get lonely. I used to have a fantastic circle of friends but they have since moved towns so we socialise with a group message on Facebook. I tried joining a mothers group which I loved but outside of the group I am friendly with a women one of the mothers had a falling out with so I have been pushed out of that so now I only really have my parents, DH and kids

    Yep me too especially lately. I'm a full time sahm with my 3 yr old dd. I have a lot of friends but they are all at different stages of their lives (work f/t, grown kids, no kids etc) or live too far away. Dp works fifo 15 days on 6 off and I have no license. Not to mention my shyness and anxiety when it comes to meeting new people

    Lately I'm really feeling it. We lost a bub at 21 weeks in oct and then I misscarried in March. I took a holiday to nz for over a month because I hated the thought of being alone. There I was surrounded by friends and family now once again I'm home and alone.

    I just wish I had some stay at home mummy friends just to have a cuppa with during the day.

    Hi all,

    I too suffer from missing my friends and now we have moved to a new town in the Sunshine Coast hinterland and I'm finding it extremely difficult to make new connections. My DP is pressuring me to "get out there" and meet new people but I am finding it so so disheatening! He is such a social butterfly so when we go somewhere he makes new besties within minutes. I have started taking my 2yo DS to the local playgroup here, but I have only been twice now and find the mums all already know each other and though I have no problem making general conversation and they are all very friendly, I have not connected with anyone either. My little man and appointments for my expected new arrival in March keep me occupied but it certainly isn't the same as having those mates who would just pop over for a cuppa every now and then. I even tried haunting the local playground hoping to meet a mumma with a kiddo around the same age as my DS, but only came across Grandmas who were entertaining their grandchildren while the parent was attending to something else, lol. I think, at 36, I'm just out of touch with how to make new friends!

    I grew up in the sunshine coast hinterland! I know how you feel... hopefully you have some luck meeting people soon.... have you tried local fb pages. I'm on one for my area but I'm too shy attend the catch ups.
