    Default New friend.

    I don't have many friends. The odd parent that I see at school drop offs etc, but no one I hang out with.
    Anyway, I meet someone on a FB swap site and found out that our kids are in the same school. We chat about odd things on messenger every 2-3 days and chat for 5min at school pick up.

    This sounds odd, but I really enjoy her company, love receiving random messages from her because they make me laugh. I just really like her sense of humour and we have similar interests and views.

    So I don't want to stuff it up and be too annoying. Socially, I'm a bit awkward.
    I just wanted to share.

    That's great that you have found a new friend.
    People who make you smile i find are very few and far between.
    A few of my closest friends are people I've met on bub hub! So finding people on the Internet is fabulous! Xx

    Good for you

    It's fun to make a new pal, especially when you can make each other laugh.

    That's great.
    Offer to meet up at a park or maccas where there is a playground for kids to play.
