I don't most of the time, but from time to time I do find myself wishing for a few friends. My DH is home a lot, and I've always been pretty happy by myself. I also have a lot of hobbies to pursue so I don't really get bored either.

Yes! Very lonely and bored. Its just me and miss 3.5 most the time as dp works away 15 days straight. I also don't drive so mostly just stuck at home.

And then you finally get up the guts to make plans and get canceled on by the same person for the second time in one week and it just fuels the anxiety and desire to become a shut in.

No I don't get lonely being a sahm. I go out walking with the pram every day, sometimes twice a day. I talk to other parents at school drop off and pick up, I catch up with friends for coffee or I just enjoy being at home relaxing when the kids are napping.
After working hard and putting in long hours in the workplace I am loving being a sahm, I feel like I am on holidays from work. I love sleeping in, hanging out in my pj's if I want to, choosing what activities to do with my kids. Such freedom, I love being a sahm.
I feel like being a sahm is an absolute luxury and I am enjoying every minute so far.
Perhaps i I would get lonely if I stayed at home every day, but I like to get out and about.

I didn't find it lonely as after my first was born, I found an amazing group of friends through mothers group. We are still friends today 6 years on. But it was isolating in a way. I also find it boring.
I have only worked 2 or 3 days a week since having kids. It's a perfect balance for me. No way could I be a sahm ull time. I need more stimulation than playgroup etc. I also wouldn't want to work more than 3 days until my kids are in school.
