    Yep, we've missed you around these parts!
    And I'd totally have coffee with you if I didn't live on the other side of Australia xxx

    Hi Rita,
    Loneliness is such a painful thing and I feel for you. It really is hard to make friends as an adult.
    My case is a lot different to yours but I'm becoming increasingly isolated through ending up childless when my friends and sister are all so busy with their children, they don't have time for me.
    Maybe some of the Brissy girls on here can have coffee with you

    This .. I don't post much at all but always read what you have to say in posts @RipperRita, you have definitely been missed. I wish we lived closer cause I would also love to catch up with you x

So far this year I haven't really gelled with any of the other mothers in my kids classes and every attempt I've made at making friends seems to be rebuffed and rejected. I know everyone has busy lives... but I'm just feeling alone and wish I had a friend to have coffee with. I haven't spoken to an adult in conversation in weeks..
    Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult? I don't work and Ive deferred uni so I don't get many opportunities to meet people and make friends.
    Hello! I haven't seen you around Bubhub much lately!

    I think that making friends with the school mums is a numbers game. I'm nice and always smile and say good morning to every mum (and dad!). I'm fortunate enough to have met quite a few mummy friends just through school drop off and pick up. I also make an effort to volunteer for reading groups and I also hang around a bit, I arrive a bit early and I'm not in a rush to run off, so I have the chance to chat with the mums (and the dads!)

    Good luck, I'd be your friend irl if we lived near each other!

    Thank you so much ladies.... It brought a little warmth to my heart as I often feel like I'm invisible

    Default Lonely

    I'm a Brisbane girl currently living on the coast, majority of my friends are in Brissy so I feel this way sometimes too, I'm on maternity leave with my second and my first is 3.


    I don't post that much, but loved reading your opinion on things... So glad to see you're back, not glad to see you're feeling blue though.

    I feel the same, I try and Ive been going to one playgroup since my ds1 was a baby but I dont seem to form bonds, i just feel like I dont 'fit' iykwim.

    I want friends but I just cant seem to make them, my ds1 is extremely hard to manage behaviour wise (trying to figure out where I start with that one) and despite him starting school next year I doubt we'll make friends there, he's 'that kid' iykwim
