Hi. Dh and I have recently moved to a new area and don't know anyone here. I am a SAHM, so my days are filled with conversations with a 2 and 3 year old...and my dh is in an office, but they are all a lot older than him.
We have nice next door neighbours, but they are hardly around. They work very long hours.
So, any suggestions where we can find some friends? We were due to go out on Sat - had kids being looked after and everything aranged - but dh's friends have let us down, so we are on our own again!!
When we moved to new area 4yrs ago I found parent and toddler groups in the area listed at the doctors surgery and also in shop windows.Was very brave and went along to all I could find and now have lovely group of friends.Good luck
Hi, I moved into a new are in the summer and really missed my friends - still do, but I got involved in the nursery and school pta's. Now I've met lots of people and would count a few a friends, I'm beginning to be included on nights out and the odd bbQ - it takes time, but you just have to be confident and chat to people.
Yes,glassofwine(yes please,my work is done!!) you do just have to be really brave and talk to as many people you can.Sometimes i really had to force myself to go to groups but i went and it paid off in the end!The more you go the easier it gets and before you know it they are your friends.
