Today has hit me hard that I don't have a "best friend". If you were to look at me you would think that I have a "perfect life" but who does? I would love to be able to call up "my girlfriend" for a coffee or a movie or to come over with their family to my house for a bbq, but somehow throughout my life I think I made the wrong choices and chose boys over girlfriends, chose to have life experiences with my DH instead of girlfriends until I didn't have any close ones left. I am in playgroups, I work part time and I have people to talk to but never in the way I could with a close girlfriend.
I actually feel better having written it all down and vented, so thank you Bub Hub.

I walk through shopping centres with my baby girl in her pram stopping every now and then to sit down hoping and praying someone will just sit down next to me and talk to me. But they never do. I continue on feeling like I want to scream out. I've never felt so alone in all my life.

Aww I used to feel like that too,. I'm sorry that you feel like that - maybe try develop the relationships that are already around you. Like play group try inviting a member for coffee or a play at the park.. I did this sort of thing and made some very good friends. Sometimes you need to put in a bit more than others
If any of you are in Perth I'll catch up for a coffee and chat

Me too. I've moved too many times and then haven't been bothered to pick the friendships back up. Sure, I've got lots of friends and acquaintances but not a group of friends or 1 close friend.
In saying that, I am making an effort with a new friends (my ex's bros ex haha) and even though we can't catch up every week, when we do it's like we pick straight back up.

belli and bennos...I like your ideas. I'm going to try to be a little more involved in the play group and get to know them a whole lot better.
Thanks so much. I have somewhere to start now.
