My experience with Getting out

Last week I felt so embarrassed and anti- social at this reading event for Infants and toddler's. Let me tell you my reason why: 1. I haven't made any new friends since my daughter was born so I suck at talking to people now. 2. My daughter's 6.5 months and there was no other babies there her age or around her age. 3. I'm a young mother about to be 22 and they were all older so I felt like I didn't fit in at all. 4. I'm a mom who loves to dress my daughter and me up so I was wearing high heel boots which are my favorite. 5. I just sat with my daughter on my lap feeling awkward since No one said Hi I just stood back. 6. I'm not married just in a relationship with my daughter's father. 7. it's hard for me to find friends because I can be outspoken. Now I leave my post with this question: Have anyone in here dealt with having a hard time finding friends after having a baby? and how did you fix this issue?

I relate to you so much!! I love dressing my daughter up even though I’m usually in a T-shirt. And I’m 21 and a single mom. I get judge mental stares and nobody talks to me 😬 I try to be nice to other moms but we’re always in opposite points in our lives with them married, older than me, and so many other differences. It’s SO hard!!

i’ve never been good at making friends so now that i’m a mom it’s just worse. i don’t even know what to say to people anymore.

I struggle soooo much. I don’t understand how some can just have so many mom friends.. it’s lonely for sure and I feel your pain!

I have like 1 rl friend who's my bestfriend and 10 online bestfriends, i also have a hard time making friends. I became a mom at 21, but it's crazy how many friends you lose (who aren't mothers) after having kid's. I've met one friend from here and we still talk and trying to make plans to hang out soon she had moved to SC and had just moved back to the area so i was excited she came back lol. But if you have friends in here who are local make plans to meet and hang out!

Going through it now for sure! Made some friends here but have yet to meet up with them- just can't time it right. And I feel bad for my daughter! She hasn't really interacted with other babies and she's already 5 months old 😬
