As TotallyEggFlipped has already mentioned - I know it's a bit of a sin to mention it on MN (!!) but Netmums has a "Meet a Mum" section and also arranges mums' meetups. May be worth a try.

Im in the Northwest and cant say I have any friends either, who would I go to to drink wine and slag off DH?

Where is the friendship bench?

Aw this is shit isn't it. I'm the exact same. I have no proper friends. I have no sisters which I'm very resentful about because if I had a sister then a might have at least one friend. Dh and my DM are my best friends.

I do work with a great bunch of women who I get on well with but besides them I don't have a single other friend. My best friend ditched me when I was 15 and has never been replaced sad

no friends here either!

sad

Am in same situation, am north west.

I think it's so sad so many of us are in the same situation sad

Hi, I'm in the NorthWest, have a handful of friends in my county, lots of acquaintances or people who live too far away to see more than once or twice a year. I don't know how much this is par for the course with family life/age etc.

charllie Wed 28-Nov-12 20:41:35

Yep same here. I have my OH who is my best friend and one other friend, that's it.

Totally egg I'm in Devon smile

Anything I wouldn't be too upset at not having a sister. They aren't guaranteed friends. I have 4, but we were all split up by social services, and I haven't seen or heard from them in years. I have no idea where they are or how they are doing, and SS won't allow contact.

It's more depressing than helpful, I find.

OP there is a great fb group for mners who want to make new friends

i am a member, if you have facebook you can add me on facebook and i will invite you to the group. you don't have to stay my fb friend once i have added you to the group, but you can if you want to smile pm me for my FB name if you want me to add you.

i know the feeling as i haven't got many friends either, just a couple of really close ones.

3monkeys Wed 28-Nov-12 20:44:22

I have 2 whole friends! Where in the Northwest is everyone? I'm on the Wirral

Anythingforabitofpeace Wed 28-Nov-12 20:47:17

I'm sorry caja, that really is sad.

I suppose there's no guarantee a sister is a best friend. I have a DS and a DD and I feel a bit regretful than neither of them has a same sex sibling. But DH is adamant no more.

TickleFlower Wed 28-Nov-12 20:48:23

Moomie could you pm me and then ill tell you my name so you an add me to group x

SomebodySaveMe Wed 28-Nov-12 20:49:02

I have no friends either. I'm in Northamptonshire.

OhWhatAPalaver Wed 28-Nov-12 20:54:05

I am fortunate enough to have some long standing friends, however we had to move somewhere cheaper (Stockport for my sins) and all my friends live over an hour away and we don't drive and neither do my friends! its all a bit rubbish.
also, only one of my friends has a baby but unfortunately they live the furthest away! seems like none of my other friends want to reproduce (or drive) and they're all older than me :/

i don't really feel like i belong in Stockport, even though i grew up here. i escaped for a reason and didn't expect to move back but then DD arrived grin

It does make me sad to read how lonely some of us are. Life can be very isolating and lonely but, chins up, at least we have MN!

I'm in East Sussex and am free most days as I cannot find a job. Meeting or chatting would be very welcome smile

ElectricSoftParade Wed 28-Nov-12 20:57:02

Moomie That group sounds good x

NotALondoner Wed 28-Nov-12 20:57:20

Does anyone else feel a bit better to hear of so many people without friends? It's not nice, obviously, but it seems to be totally and completely normal, which is encouraging.

TickleFlower Wed 28-Nov-12 20:59:42

Does feel nice not to be only lonely one!
