Ive been a mum for 10 months but ive been friendless for most of my life. I have had friends but none that actually stick around. I am looking to join a mum and baby group but was wondering if anyone else has experienced the same or wants to talk. Ive been on mums net for a while now and almost every post of mine has no comments at all so hopefully someone talks to me

I will talk to you. My DC are older (4 and6) but I don't have any true good friends either. Have managed to arrange some may ups for half term which is lovely. Not true friends though in the way I have had before.

Meet ups. Stupid autocorrect.

I have tried to arrange meet ups on here in the past but no one ever posted back. I have been on here for a while and it would be nice to have someone to talk to on a regular basis as it gets lonely being home all day

Sorry I missed your reply Avpixie27. Where are you roughly? You might find some MNers local to you. It can be lonely as you say.

In newport south wales. No one seems to live near

Ah, not close enough although I am not too far away. Just the other wide of the bridge. Bumping in case anyone reading is in Newport.

I am not sure if I am allowed to say this but you have tried the 'meet a mum' or whatever it is called on Netmums. I found this useful when mine were small even though I migrated here!

Ive never heard of that

Have a look. I found a friend when DD was tiny and she is 6 now. We are still friends. Hit and miss. MN has local boards too but ours is beyond slow sadly. Yours might not be. Worth a shot.

Where can i find it?

See here for the local site and then look at meet a mum. I would try the local MN board too. Mine was super quiet sadly. I am a MNer at heart always!

Hi OP, hope you have managed to find some local mums/groups?
I'm new to MN but in quite a similar situation to you, I have a 4yr old & 7mnth old but moved 300miles from friends & family when I was pregnant with dc1.
Not local to you unfortunately but wanted to say you're not alone.
Happy to chat if you ever need.

Ive asked to join a local mum and toddler group which hopefully starts next week. But still in the lonely category. Sometimes you just want someone to chat to if that makes sense
