For all the lonely people

So...ive read a few threads recently about people being lonely, and have decided to stand up and say "I have no friends" I have a DH and a DS and a DM, but that is all. I know there must be some people on here that would make a great friend, and that I could be a great friend to, but how would I ever know.

Wondered if this was a way to start the ball rolling, a bit of simple information about ourselves, then if we think someone would make a good friend / has similar interests, we could PM them?

I will start

I'm 27. Live in Fife.

Have 15wk old son so life pretty much revolves around him at the moment.

Am a local newspaper journalist but considering not going back after maternity leave and hoping to stand for election as a councillor (SNP) and do that instead.

Interested in politics, enjoy cooking and am a Brownie unit leader.

Despite being quite a feisty person and trying to get out and join local mum&baby groups I have suffered from depression for years so find it hard to believe people would want to be my friend therefore such relationships tend to fizzle out as I don't/can't push them forward.

I moved 7 years ago to a place that I have made no friends in, I also have no family close by, I haven't talked to any member of my family for nearly three years.

I do have work colleagues but don't intereact with them outside of work.

Tell us more Fabby.. where abouts do you live? What work do you do? I also moved to where I am about 8 years ago, and my nearest family member is an hour away.

Your boys are gorgeous Fabby. Don't know if they'd appreciate having their photos on here though.
