Have you tried play and stay groups?

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 11:52:36

Yes a few. I have friends just they're all married

Tenshidarkangel Fri 24-Mar-17 12:36:08

I fail the vetting due to lack of children and I hate coffee....
I can be a bit of a twat too. XD

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Fri 24-Mar-17 12:37:17

Ah knew my dh was a thorn in my side!! Missed out on a bezzy mate now!!

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 12:45:00

Ah if you're free on occasional Saturdays minus DH then you are in!

I'll apply

3 DC 9, 7 and 5
Love coffee - milk no sugar please unless it's a bad day then I'll have one.

Toddlerteaplease Fri 24-Mar-17 12:59:30

I'll apply. But no children. Happy to talk about yours though. I live in cafe Nero.

BabiaMajora Fri 24-Mar-17 13:02:11

Signing up unless 2.10yo DC2 is a deal breaker.

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:02:12

Yay!!! Besties!!!!!

pinkpixie83 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:12:08

So why the need for besties? Not that anyone can ever have too many friends.

LauraMipsum Fri 24-Mar-17 13:18:15

My daughter's too young but if the guidelines are elastic I fit your criteria with a 2.5yo and I'll be your friend (said in a non-weird way honest)

Have you tried Mush? One of my friends is working for them so I signed up and it's much better than I thought it would be. You stick in your name and location and it tells you who is nearby with a match. It's like Tinder but for friendship for mums.

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:39:05

I'm a single mum of six and I work from home. During my child free times I have to work, and during my days with the youngest two, the days are very long! But everyone I know is married, or work, and basically it's lonely !!!

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:40:38

In fact, I haven't spoken to another adult since Sunday! Apart from the women that work at the nursery my younger two go to

glitterglitters Fri 24-Mar-17 13:43:37

As PP said mush is brilliant. I've made a couple of new mummy friends using it and have had coffee and play dates with and without the kids.

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:44:52

That sounds excellent, will take a look! Thank you x

Goldfishjane Fri 24-Mar-17 13:49:49

I need a new bestie as mines too busy with her fab career
I don't have kids though so can't apply.

debbs77 Fri 24-Mar-17 13:53:22

Well that's a bit pants!

Okay so I will revise the kids part then! Mwah!

fedupandnogin Fri 24-Mar-17 14:06:12

I'd like one too. Teenage kids who don't want/need me anymore. Divorced and current love life a bit sporadic. Most other people in my circle are married.

NotJanine Fri 24-Mar-17 14:14:09

fedup I'm in the same boat. Kids too old for me to be making friends through their school or activities. I don't have many friends and they're all married.

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Fri 24-Mar-17 14:17:00

I have 6dc full time too! (others over 16!!) . Not many of us extra busy dms around!!

pinkpixie83 Fri 24-Mar-17 16:06:02

Hats off to you I struggle as a single mum of three

dyinginside Fri 24-Mar-17 17:28:49

I have six too, mostly in their twenties now, youngest is twelve, loved every minute of it, I was an only child and hated it

Wishiwasmoiradingle2017 Fri 24-Mar-17 17:30:50

dyinginside I have some in their 20's and also hated being an only child. .

dyinginside Fri 24-Mar-17 17:56:25
